Do you wonder why you work and work and still don’t seem to be getting through to your dog? I want RELIABILITY!
Ever been told your timing needs work?
Do you get stuck in Acquisition and it seems like all you are doing is stuffing cookies in your dog’s face without the stupendous result promised by using treats to train? When does this behaviour hold up and become reliable?
What does a dog need to understand in Acquisition and how do I get that to a behaviour that is easy to maintain and dependable?
Every time you take your dog to a new location or context, do your behaviours disintegrate before your eyes or even explode with a big bang right in front of you?
The great majority of our training time is spent in Generalization, but what should I be doing there to make it work better? My training is great at home and where I take regular lessons. Why do my behaviours fail when I take them to a new place? Frustrating!
I can help!
Join me for in this short course that takes a few twists and turns into all sorts of dog training and behaviour tangents…because to me, a good clinic answers questions that students bring.
This webinar includes 106 minutes of video, downloadable handouts, and a recording of a Q&A Call. Cost: $49.95
Brenda Aloff is an internationally recognized speaker, clinician and author.
Brenda published her first book in 2001 and has since added more books & DVDs, online courses and a certification program to teach Entry Level Classes. Canine Body Language earned a Maxwell award for Excellence in Dog Writing.
Bringing over 25 years of practical and “in the trenches” experience to the table, Brenda works primarily with problem dogs. She also counsels working dog and competition dog owners to improve dog performance, error reduction and how to enhance their relationships.
Brenda has taught thousands of group classes, from puppy to advanced competition to re-socialization classes for reactive dogs. She has worked with SAR teams and police officers at clinics and in private lessons, with scenting and working dogs.
A large percentage of her practice consists of dogs that are referred when other training techniques have been exhausted or failed. A high percentage of clientele consists of dogs with reactivity and/or aggression problems. Referrals come from other professional trainers as well as veterinarians.
Living with dogs is not always easy! Brenda knows the “problem dog” group well, having lived with several bad actors and delinquents herself. This allows her to bring an intimate knowledge of how to deal with dogs and what can be done to prevent problems from developing. Having worked & LIVED WITH a huge variety of rescue and problematic animals promotes her very unique way of dealing with clients. “I KNOW what the owners are going through. What owners of difficult dogs need is not sympathy, they need empathy and understanding and protocols that work!”
Bringing her knowledge of cross-training species to her dog training makes her approach unique and effective and above all humane and loving. Accustomed to outsmarting rather than forcing equines was a habit long before Brenda began training dogs professionally.
Brenda has kept sheep (including lambing). She is currently riding her 2 Morgans and 1 Lusitano and studying Classical Dressage in the French Tradition.
Much repeated phrases to students are: “Shut up! Stand Still. Let your dog THINK!” (said in a very loving way) “If that dog weighed 1000 pounds, you would be handling this situation much more carefully!”
