and field work with handlers and dogs. Meant to compliment
any training program, we discuss core and basic principles
that underlie any solid training approach. Topics include
a dog's mentality, understanding dominance and submissiveness
in a pack, the tools of pressure: amount and use, and
maximizing your dog's learning.
