I am delighted to be accredited as an Absolute Dogs ProTrainer.
It is a high energy programme reflected in the amazing results for dogs and families I have worked with.
Pro Dog trainers work with “concepts” it is a brain based learning programme using current neurological knowledge of learning. We identify the learning needs of the dogs and the functional needs of their families and then use 3 min games (the optimum time for learning to be processed) alongside calm time and play to develop deeper learning. Calm is an intrinsic part of the programme. To find out more about the importance of calm have a look at the blog.
This way of learning is especially great for children to learn to have fun, bond with and be responsible owners for their dog.
As a teacher for young children we use concept and short burst (chunked ) learning for fast results. Children really benefit from this too.
The fun positive based learning fits so well with the ethos of IMDT and I am thrilled to combine the two.
I will be writing more posts on this soon.
Meanwhile please visit and like and join my FB group and page. Here I upload useful and educative information and will link blog posts etc. I welcome participants sharing their information and stories and asking for questions they are both positive, supportive , non judgemental places to share and educate.
