Topics Covered With Q/A Afterwards
  1. What is a Dog Behaviorist
    Dogs have been coexisting with humans for hundreds of years now. Often, humans seek the help of a professional to help them change certain aspects of their dog’s behavior. Deciding whether to consult a dog trainer or a dog behaviorist can be confusing if you don’t know the difference in their services. The major difference between the two lie in their individual goals for the dogs they work with such as focusing on basic commands, agility, or protection etc.
  2. Associative Learning
    Dogs learn negative behaviors through associative learning. How a dog responds to its environment is based on his perception of his world or his triggers. Perceptions are developed through past experiences. Past experiences then build associations that in return become your dogs reality. To help dogs in rehabilitation, replacing an old association with new ones is the only way to change a dogs perception and give them a new reality to live the rest of their lives happy and balanced.
  3. Becoming a Pack Leader
    Like a marriage or in relationships "Actions speak louder than words" or in your dogs eyes your Actions in how you control or manage the environment as a calm fair leader speaks louder than your obedience commands. When working with changing the behavior of a dog 90% is changing the behavior of the human(s) who live with the dog. How you manage the dog, how you feed the dog, how you interact with the dog, how to work through your fear after the dog bit you or someone else.
  4. Calming The Mind
    For the dog and yourself Calming the mind, before learning can begin is the only way to communicate and rehabilitate a dog. Like people, when emotions run high during conversation the conversation becomes more about control than it does about communicating and learning. During this seminar we will discuss different ways of dealing with a dogs intensity.
  5. Q/A
    Afterwards you will get a chance to spend time with Tony. As a group you will have an opportunity to have an open discussion and discuss questions and ideas that will give you clarity or validation as to the relationship you are having with your dog.
  6. Host A Seminar/Clinic!
    If you’re interesting in hosting a seminar/clinic we’d be happy to work with you! Hosting a seminar is also a great way to raise money for your organization or cause.
