Description

This powerfully effective technique is used to help socially shy dogs master the intricacies of feeling comfortable interacting with and being around people. This is a dog-centric technique that is force-free, and one that does not use negative reinforcement. Instead, respect for the dog’s boundaries, arousal and abilities are combined with nuanced observation and engagement of SEEKING to help build the dog’s skills. Using thin slices, Treat-Retreat helps the dog develop skills in comfortable ways that are readily generalized.

This is an intensive certification course designed for working professionals who wish to build their skills for working with shy, fearful and socially awkward dogs.

What Our Students Say About TREAT/RETREAT

  • Awesome course! I loved this course. Powerful change through easy to follow protocols! Thank you, Suzanne. ~Shanthi Steddum
  • Fantastic – I especially like the information that concentrates on the importance of understanding SEEKING. This is SO GOOD!  ~ Christine Fox
  • Positive Method This course in just the first module has proven that when we put the ownership on the learner (dog), we have a positive outcome. I’ve learned so much about the “seeking” mode too.  ~ Brooke Dickhart
  • These introduction subjects have been enlightening. I particularly enjoy the discussion topics and opportunities to get Suzanne’s comments and guidance.  ~ Bobbi Burgmann

    A superb, joyful and powerful learning experience

    The structure and content of this course are superb. As you work through the steps, you can feel the level of thought and attention to detail that has gone into making sure you have what you need to progress, and I was very aware that the creators really cared about my learning experience being a happy one. The text and video materials are first rate and the tutors are exceptional; delivering support and feedback with expertise, humour, kindness and patience. The technique itself is a game-changer and I feel privileged to have learned such a powerful and flexible tool to help families with dogs who struggle around people. Seeing the changes in the dogs as they learn and progress is humbling and joyful. It changes lives! Suzanne’s wealth of knowledge and experience and her generosity as a teacher are inspiring and heart warming. The warmth and humour in her delivery is captivating and just great fun as well! And the well-being of dog is always, always at the centre of everything, just as it should be. I am delighted to recommend this course to any trainer who wants to learn a powerful and effective technique they can trust and which makes perfect sense to dogs.
