Seminar Title: Kathy Sdao Unplugged: A Workshop for Trainers and Dogs
Seminar Date: July 15-16 in Seattle, Washington State 9-5 pm.
Speaker: Kathy Sdao, MA, ACAAB.
Dog training is an activity designed to elicit, modify and control the behaviors of dogs. It requires cognitive skill as well as physical skill and it obliges dog trainers to make seemingly endless choices about methods, tools and priorities. From the initial choice of how to “get” the desired dog-behavior to occur, to later decisions about how to integrate the learned behavior into the dog’s repertoire and daily life, the trainer must consider practicality, expediency and the dog’s emotional welfare.
We dog trainers aspire to make the best choices possible. And so we continue to educate ourselves, by studying the science, by watching great trainers in action, by brainstorming ideas and then trying them out with our own dogs, and by discussing concepts with our colleagues. This workshop will include all these activities. We’ll combine lecture segments about the practical application of SMART (See, Mark and Reward Training) with plenty of dog-training exercises, demonstrations, games and time for questions. Think of this workshop as a chance to participate in a two-day “trainers’ think tank.”
