Really Real Relaxation PRO Course

(11 customer reviews)

Imagine your dog choosing to lay down and truly relax with you, almost anywhere! RRR helps the dog learn how to modulate his own arousal, and choose to lay down, and to do so in connection with the handler.

The Really Real Relaxation Pro course is intended for trainers who want the “how to” as well as the “why.” This professional level course walks you through the steps of the RRR protocol. This course is perfect for a dog professional, someone in performance sports, or anyone who likes a deeper dive.

Description

RRR understands the importance of social modeling. Social animals, like dogs (and humans) take their cues from what’s going on around them. RRR has the handler model relaxation for the dog, and relax with the dog.

RRR can be taught in just one session, though some dogs (or their handlers!) may need a few sessions. Suitable for any age dog, RRR is ideal for first training sessions, even first night of class!

RRR can be taught and practiced anywhere the dog is in the Think & Learn Zone (able to think and use known skills/behaviors, and able to learn – take in new information). Being able to put RRR to practice immediately in their lives anywhere the dog is not over threshold is a true gift for any handler & dog.

Really Real Relaxation really works. It’s a game changer!

A unique & effective relaxation protocol

  • Choice, connection, social modeling & the power of intrinsic reinforcement set Really Real Relaxation apart from other protocols
  • Creates authentic relaxation through the dog’s own choice
  • Handler and dog remain connected and relaxed
  • Easy to teach, requires no special skills
  • Applicable anywhere the dog is in the Think & Learn Zone

    I enjoyed the course but more importantly, as a pro trainer, and I always look for new modalities and ideas to bring to my private training practice. This methodology is one of those “jewels” I will incorporate into my behavior modification toolbox to help my clients help their dogs relax in “real world” scenarios.

    Suzanne does a terrific job in delivering the information by providing clear examples of her protocol and what is not. However, do not be fooled by the simplicity of the exercise/protocol! There is much more nuance to the steps involved. From my perspective, there is a secondary benefit for dog parents to learn when engaging in Suzanne’s RRR. They will learn to look for small changes in their dog’s body language and demeanor, which supports their dogs in learning how to lower their arousal level.

    Suzanne Clothier is a brilliant trainer and teacher. I have seen her demonstrate this at an in-person workshop. Since then, I’ve practiced it with clients and love the approach. I signed up for this class to take a deeper dive into RRR and I am glad I did. Suzanne breaks things down so well for easy learning.

  3. Elizabeth Knight

    A brilliant skill that not only helps my girl relax in different situations, but helps me to relax and stay connected with her IN THE MOMENT. It’s really quite simple, but we’re so used to always DOING something that it takes a while to “get it.”

  4. Margie Wiesman

    Excellent, well constructed teaching!

    I watched the RRR on a PPG webinar and wanted more. The Pro webinar is an excellent teaching program, complete with diagrams, and real video showing real-time changes in dogs behavior. Ms. Clothier’s patient, quiet voice is a reminder that calmness always wins over loud, pushy behavior from humans and dogs!

  5. Georgette Lombardo

    This is a great way to teach you and your dog how to relax with fewer steps than other programs I have seen. I also like these instructions since the handler shows the dog how to be relaxed as well. So often, handlers including myself are asking for calm and not demonstrating it as well. I plan on using this with my dogs.

    Highly recommend this course! Really Real Relaxation enabled me to teach my dog to relax and stay calmly connected to me in any environment which includes agility trails.

  7. Gwen Grimm

    Priceless!

    I loved this course. It is so helpful to not only read what to expect and look for but to also see through video usage what the instructor is describing. Not only are the successes highlighted, but also potential pitfalls and what to do if/when you encounter them.

    For a dog to be able to learn to regulate their own arousal level is key for me. Thank you!

  8. Rachel Magee

    A must for all dog guardians and trainers!

    This course is very easy to digest (from the content to the layout of modules). I can’t wait to start using this with my clients dogs and introduce it to my local shelter!

  9. Bev Ball

    I enjoyed learning this relaxation technique and am eager to show it to future clients. the videos are very helpful in identifying the subtle changes in the dog’s behavior before he settles down and starts to relax. Thank you!

  10. Laura Fennel

    Incredibly helpful for reactive, high-energy, and dogs that need and on/off switch!

    I love this exercise and describe it to dog owners as a team meditation exercise. It’s an exercise every reactive dog should have the the opportunity to learn, for sure. I find this approach helps the dog their chill more independently and organically. The requirement of the handler to also regulate themselves helps to keep my tendency to micromanage in check. I have made dramatically better progress helping a dog find relaxation and self-regulate using this protocol after a single session than with weeks of daily drills with another protocol. (That sounds cliche, but it is true.) It is very integration-into-your-life-friendly. So great!

    I’ve been using another relaxation protocol to help owners teach their dogs to relax and settle, but Suzanne’s method makes it clearer for the dog and achieves faster results. This is a great tool!
