Over the last few months I haven’t spent much time training the dogs, which means my mechanics have gotten a little sloppy and I haven’t had much time for experimenting or continuing education (which is super important).
Now that the Academy is open and I’m not swamped with behind the scenes preparation, I’m determined to clean my own training up. That means re-visiting how to train with efficiency while really leveraging all the positive training has to offer.
So I’m going to bring you along so we can learn to trainer cleaner and smarter together.
First things first, what is positive reinforcement really, and how do we really harness it with our service dogs?
