Seminar
Control & Intensity
Two Day Seminar for Sport & Working Dog/Handler Teams
Balancing control with intense drive is a key challenge in bite sports and other high-energy activities. Thoughtfully built and well-maintained reward-based exercises offer the best of both worlds, enhancing clarity and control while actually increasing your dog's intensity. This approach allows your dog to fully enjoy their work while remaining engaged and responsive to the handler.

This seminar is appropriate for those just beginning their journey, seasoned teams looking to problem solve and fine tune with innovative and reward-based methods, and all those in-between.

This seminar will be especially valuable for those interested in or actively training bitesports with exclusively reward-based methods.
