About the event
Impulse Control (or Stimulus Control) is the crock to so many problems we see in both sports and pet dogs.
Dogs that get over excited on seeing something or someone they want, dogs that steal items, dogs that cant walk by the smelly fire hydrant, or get past the squirrel....all of these are examples of areas where impulse control comes into play.
Teaching the dog that they have the ability to suppress that 'urge' and contiue, is a skill that all dogs need.
We will start from the begining with simple tasks and build adding new training techniques as you and your dog progresses.
Concerned that you dog already knows Leave-It and you will not get much from the class? Can your dog 'leave-it' in a new environment? With other dogs around. If yes??? Fantastic - but we can still build on this.
This workshop will take your training to a whole new dimension ........more sessions will follow in this category. T
