BH305: The Whole Picture - Behavioral Wellness for Performance Dogs

Instructor: Sarah Stremming

Course Details

Based on Sarah's concept, The Four Steps to Behavioral Wellness, this course digs deeper into what our dogs really need. The Four Steps are: exercise, enrichment, nutrition, and communication. Learn how to exercise your dog in a way that truly feeds his mind and body (and how you can tell!), how to provide enrichment that emboldens the shy or fearful and encourages thoughtfulness in the adrenalized, how to be sure you are on the right nutrition path, and how to communicate effectively in life and sport. Also included are the foundational skills most foundation curricula leave out: waiting as a concept, happy crating, handler-attention in the face of social enticement, and more!
