Course 11

This two (2) day course focuses on the understanding of communication and detail provided through the proper use of a leash. We will cover the human side of the equation and the signals and communications humans send (most of the time unconsciously) through their use, carry and handling of a leash. This course provides trainers and owners with an in depth look at the oldest training and communication tool between the humans and a canine. You will learn to focus on the actual signals you are sending to the dog and the signals the dog is sending to you through the leash. You will gain an understanding of how to communicate your intent even before leash use. You will learn how to build trust and communicate through feel, timing and touch.

There will be opportunities to write notes. Each person will receive individual instruction through the course. This is a hands-on class with no formal “presentation” time. All instruction will be with the human and dog combination.

Testimonials

“I’m seriously going to need a lot of time to even begin to process everything I learned this weekend. I am no longer a skeptic — we are living with dogs all wrong, myself absolutely included” Shaina Lynn

“It was such a huge learning experience for both myself and Kenji, as it immersed me into looking at the world from a dog’s perspective. I gained so much insight into what to do when he is fearful and how to approach it, which is such an incredible tool for my own confidence. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with their dog, and to anyone who struggles with it.” Kaye Barron

“My head is full of so much new amazing, mind blowing knowledge.  Create the relationship with your dog so that your dog trusts you.  Then everything falls into place from there. I’ve witnessed that with Niko. This week is life changing and I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned. Saying goodbye to him at the end of the course will not be easy.” Lauren White
