Observation Skills Part Two is scheduled to start March 31, 2024.

REALLY See the Dog

Are you ready to learn how to really see what dogs are showing you? Suzanne Clothier’s observation skills are legendary. The late great R.K.Anderson DVM called her, “one of the best observers of dogs that I have ever seen.” Suzanne’s approach gives you new ways of seeing dogs. Includes 8 modules, 5 Q&A sessions tenatively scheduled for Tuesdays at 2pm EST, practice exercises. CEUS pending for PPAB, IAABC & KPA.

  • Accurate observations are at the heart of great training (and great relationships). If you don’t really SEE THE DOG, your relationships and training are missing important information dogs need you to know.
  • Learn Suzanne’s holistic approach that includes the complete dog – physical, mental and emotional as interactive parts of the whole.
  • Blending techniques from ethology with the practical skills learned in a lifetime with animals, Suzanne’s lessons build on each other to develop your skills.

    This is the next step after Observation Skills Part 1 and one of the three prerequisites for CARAT Certification.

    Q: Do I have to have taken Intro to CARAT before I take this course?

    A: No, but it helps as some CARAT concepts are put to use in this course. You do have to complete Observation Skills Part 1 before joining Part 2.

    You may take Intro to CARAT after this course which is a prerequisite for any further CARAT courses.

    Like Observation Skills Part One, this course focuses on sharpening your observation skills.

    We will release two sessions per week (each about an hour+) plus practice work, plus a live Q&A session with Suzanne (recorded of course for viewing at your convenience) plus a 5th wrap-up Q& A session. You have access to the course for a full year.

    How will this course make me a better trainer?

    Really seeing the dog in front of you is critical to the training decisions you will make with and for that dog. If you work with shy, fearful or aggressive dogs, missing important information can create inhumane or dangerous situations. All dogs need your best observations at work for them.

      This course, as well as Observation Skills Part 1, has me asking more questions at the end than when I started. This is a good thing. If you are at all a “curious” person, always asking “why” and wanting to know and understand more, this is a perfect course for you. I so enjoyed the endless opportunities to ask “why” and to learn what follows the question, whether that be the answer, or more questions. The Q&A sessions are so helpful, both because of the direct interaction with Suzanne and her endless knowledge and her own questions, as well as for the insights of the others taking the course, whether professionals or pet owners. I found learning how to take notes, for various purposes, challenging, but at the same time rewarding. It helped me to start to understand what I needed to focus on and what might be extraneous, but useful later for reference. Even if you don’t work with dogs, but want to improve your own Observation Skills for other purposes, the skills and tools introduced in this course make it so useful. One of my top favorite courses taken so far.

      A Deep Dive into Observation

      I love the way Suzanne Clothier sees the world and how beautifully she teaches it to others. I’ve taken several courses from her that I’ve loved, and this one is no exception. I have learned valuable lessons from every one. I’m not a professional in the dog world, so I may not bring as much experience to this as other participants. But don’t let that stop you. Suzanne’s lessons, supplemented by weekly live Q&As, gave me practice and insight at a level I’ve never had before. (And this applies to observing dogs, humans, and anything else worth watching.). Being able to do this online has been a blessing because I can review the videos and lessons as often as I need to absorb the material. Every lesson taught me something new, exposed me to details I’d not considered before, and exercises in awareness that I can continue to practice long after the course is over. Whether you’re working with dogs or just plain want to expand your awareness, this is a great way to do it. I highly recommend it for dog trainers, breeders, rescuers, or anyone else who wants to develop skills to observe and assess a dog IN THAT MOMENT. Even the best, most skilled professionals will likely increase their effectiveness after this (and other) Suzanne Clothier classes. I give another enthusiastic two thumbs up for this one. Thank you, Suzanne!

      More brilliant and unique perspective on how we and the animals we share our lives with sort the world around us! Been through several courses now with Suzanne; including the Observation Skills Part 1 & 2. Excellent courses; I continue to learn something insightful EVERY time. Can’t wait for the next one!
