It's official--Foundation in Behavior & Training will begin on Thursday, March 21, 2013 from 6-9 pm. The course will be held in Mt. Shasta, exact location TBA.
One of the neat things about putting a new course together is that I get to research, refresh and renew my knowledge and understanding in the field of dog training. A lot of the science has been around for a very long time, but areas like genetics and neuroscience in particular are wide and woolly frontiers. Exploring the cutting edge of these disciplines as they relate to applied animal behavior leads to some exciting gems of discovery, ways of looking at our beloved companions from a fresh--and potentially revealing--perspective. Most exciting, some of these gems help us look at our dogs and cats from the perspective that really matters--their perspective. From the top of that mountain, how we communicate and how we train looks very, very different.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in March!
