Okay, I just love this photo of the “great white” from yesterday’s video, yes this is my special “DeeDog” girle “DeCaff.” She claims not guilty, I tend to believe her as all our dogs are just a product of what we know. To follow up on yesterday’s blog post about the impact of “corrections” on […]

We just wrapped up four days of puppy and young dog training. It started with our two day Advances in Dog Training (AiDT) and then rolled right into Critical Elements (the camp formerly known as puppy camp:)). As of January 2010 we now been honouring a policy that allows anyone that has attended AiDT once […]

Well we have launched! Two weekends ago we unrolled the first “Flatwork Secrets” & “Blueprint for Handling Success.” This past weekend it was “Advances in Dog Training” and “Critical Elements.” I like the way things piece together and although it always seems I have more I want to teach, I like the way the entire […]

Today is first day of another puppy camp. I am extra excited since 19 of the 24 puppies are less than 6 month old. Little sponges at this age, really. It is amazing how much faster you can teach key dog training concepts when there is little to no history of inappropriate, competing reinforcement …

Another Rockin' Puppy Camp

Posted on 04/16/09 13 Comments

Well puppy camp was once again a blast. I was very impressed with the way the campers all were able to create focus and drive in some pretty young puppies. The key was “fast and fun” transitions. From the crate to work and back to the crate, including balance breaks (yes that is correct all […]

A Special Gift for You!

Posted on 04/08/09 60 Comments

Lots of great lessons were discovered during my recent time out west. There is one lesson though, that I find myself repeating over and over again when I teach, and yet still I don’t see the change in people’s behaviour.  You know the old saying “If you always do what you have always done, you […]
