Welcome to the “Bad ” Side of Dog Training (Undertsanding Punishment) This is an advanced course (mostly theory) on the use of punishment, avoidance learning and use of corrections in dog training. This is a must for any dog trainer that wants to excel. All myths about punishment ( good and bad) will be explained and demystified! If you are an advocate of “punishment free training” or firm believer in avoidance learning, if you are seasoned competitor or beginner dog trainer, this course will take you to a different level of understanding and I guarantee you, you will be a better trainer on Monday! You may have read many training books, seen the latest videos, been to many seminars that cover these subjects but what you will learn in 3 days with Ivan will be so simple and logical and at the same time you will hear it for a first time. Here are some of the topics:
You will learn the laws of Punishment.
You will learn how to use Corrections to eliminate behavior without making negative association with the desired behavior.
You will also learn how use correction and NOT allow the dog to stay in "avoidance".
You will learn how to correct/punish puppies.
You will learn how deal with extremely fearfull, dominant or aggressive dogs trough punishment
You will learn about the wide variety of correction collars and what works best where.
You will be exposed to the way Ivan uses electric collar in training.
There will be only 10 “working” spots since this seminar will emphasize on theory, video material and an open discussion.
The "working spots" will be for:
- team that have been battling with unwanted behaviors that just can't seem to be possible to get rid of.
- dogs that respond poorly to corrections ( shutting down, developing aggression, etc.)
- there will be corrections and punishment for puppies, so if you have a puppy you may contact Ivan to discuss if it is something of benefit to you
Before you buy a ticket for participation with a dog make sure to e-mail Ivan and decide if you will benefit from the seminar with or without a dog the most.
Certificates of attendance will be issued at the end of the seminar
