    As trainers, are our expectations too high? Is it possible that we have become so involved in honing our training skills that we might not notice our client is unable, disinterested, and unlikely to follow through with our recommendations? Does a dog’s behaviour really need to be perfect? Part of being an outstanding trainer is knowing how to work within limitations and still achieve results that make for a happy client. While we are tempted to jump right into what we see is an effective textbook way to modify a dog’s behaviour, it’s equally important to be able to take a step back and ask ourselves how realistic our training plan is. Is the client likely to adhere to this plan? If not, how else can we address their problem?

    This presentation will take a look at how we can better help our clients and their dogs by becoming more creative problem-solvers with the goal of strengthening the bond between clients and their dogs. Attendees will learn how to apply a simple flowchart involving fundamental steps to achieve success in every consultation, without necessarily achieving textbook perfection. Beginners and Intermediate trainers will get some tips and ideas they can incorporate immediately into their practice, and more advanced trainers will be given food for thought.


    Webinar Objectives

    • Being more creative with our problem-solving

    • Honing our listening and observation skills

    • Putting an emphasis on strengthening the bond between our clients and their dogs

    • Recognizing and accepting a client’s limitations, and working within those parameters
