2017 has been a full on year for me, teaching in every State of Australia bar W.A. Each group I work with teaches me more, so I look forward to 2018 being just as full on!

Animal Training Lecture, Workshops & Clinics for professionals.

Here’s the difference:

A lecture is a powerpoint presentation, These can run from 2 hrs to 2 days. There will be a lot of video footage and potentially a live demo or two.

Lectures ready to roll include:

  • Learning About Learning: An introduction to the Science of Training (4hrs, 1 day or 2 days)

  • Helping the Canine Stress Heads: Anxiety and Arousal from the Inside Out. (4hrs)

  • The Power of What We Know: The Top Five Reasons Training Works or Fails (3hrs)

  • When It All Goes South: What Positive Trainers Need to Know (3hrs)

  • Where To From Here? The Future of Dog Training (3hrs)

  • Is Learning Theory All There Is? (3 hrs)

  • Conditioned Reinforcers – The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (3 hrs)

  • Emotions and Their Place In Training  (3 hrs)

  • Get In Shape – Improving your Training Skill with Free Shaping (3hrs)

  • Introduction to K9 Nose Work® (2hrs)

  • Seeking Therapy: Nosing Out Healing in Real World Situations (3hrs)

  • Anticipation: The Sweetest Smell of All (2hrs)

  • Classical Conditioning: The Foundation of All Behaviour (3hrs)

A workshop is a combination of short (30 – 60 min) lectures and group hands-on work. There is usually two lectures and two – three hands-on sessions. Maximum of 16 working teams. Any of the lectures above can be modified into a workshop.

A Clinic is the best thing ever for deep learning through discussion and observation. There will be a short (30min – 60min) lecture at the top of the clinic and the rest of the time will involve me working one on one with each dog and handler team in attendance. Observers get to hear and see in real time the training choices we make and the effect on the animal’s behaviour. I have found these fantastic for promoting discussion, team building and the building of skill of analysing behaviour via the ABC functional assessment of behaviour. Science in the real world.

The Animal Training Clinics listed below all run for approximately 4 hours. They allow for 6 – 7 working spots (dog and handler teams) and as many observer positions as the venue allows, though preference is to keep it under 25.

The clinics are designed for professional trainers or the enthusiastic owner. We do a lot of private clinics for clubs and groups so feel free to drop a line should you think this would be useful to your group.

  • Get In Shape – Improving your Training Skill with Free Shaping
