Greg Doud IGP Seminar

Feb 26 - 28    

Greg's goal is to bring out the best in any dog he's working. Through his understanding of dogs and training, he is able to tailor the training program to a dog's individual needs. Teaching and Building Drive - through the use of motivators and markers. All three phases start with developing the "want to" using primary reinforcers. Continue to Build and Refine - what the dog has learned in stage one. Incrementally improving their concentration and demanding more accuracy through a step by step process of challenging and thoughtful stressors while demanding more precision/accuracy. Accountability Stage - establishing reliability through responsibility. Only when the dog 100% knows the exercises can we shift the responsibility on the dog and then teach the "have to"  (the other side of the coin).
