Participants will learn about the canine body language of aggression and will experience applicable PPE (personal protection equipment). They will have the opportunity to experience a dog bite through a protective sleeve. The presentation is particularly suitable to anyone who encounters dogs through their work or hobby pursuits: council rangers, parks and wildlife officers, meter readers; police; veterinarians and their staff; professional dog trainers and handlers; dog enthusiasts.
Steve can either provide you with a scent detection service as required, or he can train your staff for conducting the searches.
When dealing with animals, it is critical to remain calm, quiet and in control of your emotions.
Rewarding animals for offering correct behaviours, has huge advantages over correcting animals for doing incorrect behaviours.
Finding the right reward when training animals is extremely important.
Short and positive training sessions are the key to successful results. Small steps of success are better than giants leaps of failure.
Be consistently inconsistent. What I mean by this is don’t do the same thing over and over. Just like us dogs get bored so keep training interesting.
When training animals don’t forget the owner, as they often need more training than their animal.
