You have probably noticed that the biggest change you're experiencing to date in this program is YOUR behaviour change. Are you surprised? In order to change our dog's behaviour, ours must change first and the dog's behaviour will follow. You're doing great!!
Let's get to some more juicy stuff!
After completing this module, you will be able to:
- identify your dog's specific challenges with impulse control
- teach your dog and demonstrate three behaviours to improve impulse control
- recognise a positive Conditioned Emotional Response (CER) when your dog is faced with a trigger at a safe distance
- employ the "Look at That" game (in the event of a CER) to help your dog engage/disengage from triggers at a safe distance
