Healthy Atmosphere for a Life-Long Partnership
The Canine-Human Relationship Institute’s mission is to fill in the gaps where answers to working with canines were not found before. Inspiring individuals to find those answers through clear and respectful communication, supportive leadership and immersive, experiential learning in a safe and cooperative environment. Our intent is to educate on a graduate level for a more complete knowledge and understanding of canine behavior that is grounded in research, ethology and biology to transform how individuals perceive a dog in order to become more effective at influencing the dog.
Educating Human Pack Leaders
Our focus is to teach Relationship Based Behavior Modification (RBBM ©) to all students at our Institute. RBBM was developed by Nelson Hodges over years of work in the rehabilitation of severe case dog behaviors from aggressive to fearful and shutdown dogs. RBBM was developed with the understanding of both real human and canine psychology of how the brain learns, patterning modifications (neuroplasticity), and proofing of behaviors (not situational actions). CHRI courses and workshops are intentionally designed to provide a multimodal format of classroom learning with hands-on application. All courses include a supportive, guided self-discovery process in order to cultivate genuine growth in the human/canine relationship. Students may attend one class or choose a course of study which guarantees a customized, unique and invaluable educational experience! In progression these classes build cumulative expertise, diving deeper into each aspect of the relationship, while offering humans the skills to integrate the CHRI philosophy into your everyday interactions with the humans and canines in your life.
