CT – What’s The Problem? Solving the Puzzle of Behavior, Training and Performance

This exciting new seminar from Suzanne Clothier provides attendees with a practical and powerful way of looking at any behavior, training or performance problem, and figuring out what to do.

This systematic approach to unraveling the puzzle will help any handler, novice or expert, identify the areas that need attention, recognize training methods that are effective, and understand their dog as a physical, emotional and mental being.

For the dog lover, this approach helps guide your thinking about behavior & training problems, and helps you identify where to turn to help — and what kind of help you need and want.

For the dog training professional, this approach offers a number of powerful tools for quickly and accurately identifying the issues that may be at the root of any presented problem. This allows trainers to focus on areas that need to be built or that need strengthening or repair.

Above all, how do you know how and what needs work? How do you know if a method or equipment choice is right for you and your dog? There is a bewildering array of options and information out there. How do you know which way to go? Suzanne can help you find your way using your own goodsense and specific approaches to finding answers.

Topics covered:

  • The dog – physical, mental, emotional
  • Clothier’s Functional Assessment Tracking (FAT)
  • The handler – goals, skills, tools
  • Control, Connection & Permission — finding the strengths & gaps
  • Training Triage – who, what, where, when, why
  • What’s right for you? Creating a framework for assessing tools, methods & results

While Suzanne cannot provide a magic wand or any miracle fairy dust, she can and will provide meaningful tools and ways of thinking that will help you make better decisions for yourself, your dogs and – for professionals – your clients.

The event is finished.
