Webinar 

1.5 hours intensive training

 

Through this webinar using a combination of images, videos and live feeds, we explore various behaviours, training cues and how to troubleshoot the most frequently reported problems.


Canine behaviour and dog training fields are still relatively new and as yet, no licensing requirements have been developed.


Unfortunately, this means that virtually anyone can set themselves up as a practising behaviourist and have no qualifications whatsoever.  


It also leaves the way open for practitioners to use unethical, dangerous and detrimental methods when working with dogs.


Adhering to professional ethics is entirely voluntary but it should be viewed as essential.


We need to remember that the dogs we work with are very much like children: they are a vulnerable party and cannot offer consent.  


We must ensure that the dog’s welfare is our priority at all times, especially when there is a conflict of interest, in the same way that a child’s welfare is a priority when working with children.

 Online Live   -   Dog Training Webinar

 

Dog training has moved on a great deal in recent years and thankfully we no longer teach “obedience” to our dogs or strive to “control” them.

 

Instead, we teach life skills such as impulse control, force-free handling, calm and connection.

 

At Animal Courses Direct we only use force-free ethical methods to solve unwanted behaviours - we do not use compulsion or intimidation to train dogs.
