Ideal for talking with Suzanne about your dog, and any behavior or training problems.
OAKLAND, CA May 1, 2016 Take one person, add one dog, and you get a third entity: the relationship between the person and the dog. This third “being”, formed from the intersection of two beings with their own needs, limitations and desires, needs to be addressed with care and compassion when developing any training plan. The Relationship Assessment Tool (RAT) was developed by Suzanne Clothier to further understanding of the dog/human relationship in a practical & effective way.Learn More
OAKLAND, CA April 30, 2016 This is a fascinating new seminar that offers a comprehensive approach to raising dogs with respect. If we are cultivating rather than merely raising or training, we can approach this part of our journey with our dogs in new ways. We begin to understand that the quality of all we do contributes to the dog we have at our side now and in the future. In this seminar, taught with humor, scientifically grounded knowledge and a deep passion for dogs, Suzanne’s Relationship Centered Training principles combine with her lifetime of experience raising dogs and helping others do the same.Learn More
DECATUR, GA May 12
For many reactive dogs, biting or fighting are the choices they make when they run out of options, out of coping skills and knowledge. Suzanne's approach teaches handlers to see the fear and confusion that underlies many behavior and aggression problems, and choose different approaches. Emphasis is on reading canine body language, understanding use of space (macro & micro), the stimulus gradient, and "thin slicing" & skill building for success. A variety of Suzanne's practical Relationship Centered Training techniques will be provided to help handlers and dogs both make choices that are comfortable, safe and humane.Learn More
