It can be challenging to get your herding breed to pay attention to you when there are distractions and moving things around. They were originally bred to move and control prey.
But how can you put their instincts under control?
In this afternoon workshop we'll be training with a select few herding dogs who range in age and behaviours so you can watch and observe how we can promote calmness, communication and learning through a thorough understanding of their individual needs and desires. Yes they all may have some common traits but they are also individuals so we'll show you how we can bring out the best in your dog and help you problem solve if your are facing any issues.
What topics do we cover?
Herding breeds and their original purposes
Nature vs. nurture
How dogs learn
Using natural traits to your advantage
Games to build focus
Problem solving skills
What do we do differently?
Unlike many other courses, this course is mostly run outdoors in realistic situations so that you and your dog learn together and can apply what you learn to your daily routine with some distractions.
You may register your dog for the workshop, but we will be selecting only a few dogs to attend for us to work with during the afternoon based on their history and age. This workshop is designed as an observational course to maximise your ability to learn, understand and ask questions. If you would like us to work with you and your dog afterwards we can arrange private sessions or further workshops.
