Brenda’s Brain Paradigm

Here is a preview of some of the "science" of Dog Training that is available in my online course, The Engaged Dog. You can check out more about The Engaged Dog course here: brendaaloff.com/virtual-academy/the-engaged-dog

Brains are a big deal! Brains define you and your behaviour. How does the dog’s brain affect your dog training? Every Day in Every Way!

Here is a basic explanation that any dog trainer will learn and benefit from.



Body Language

What is the difference between a Tongue Flick vs a Lip Lick and Why Should I Care?

Body Language is how your dog talks to you. It is a vital part of the interactions between you and your dog, and the more you know about your dog’s native language - body language - the more bonded, the more communicative and the more effective you will be in your dog training and your dog relationships.

Your Starter Kit with Brenda Aloff

I am so glad to see you here! My teaching philosophy is based on empowering students and teaching them how to make good training decisions.

My students not only improve their performance in their particular venue, whether that is SAR work, Competition Obedience, Agility, Tracking - you name it - but they also find that the relationship they have with their dog is more comfortable and loving.

Please enjoy the learning tools I've included in the Starter Kit.
