I enjoy working through games to develop “concepts” through a brain based learning programme using current neurological knowledge of learning. I 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.
As such Mandy is now a Kids Around Dogs Approved Trainer. KAD offers support for families where there are children with concerns around dogs. As a Quaified teacher ith 35 years experience and a lifelong dog owner it is so important that we support all children to learn how to behave appropriately around dogs and to understand how and why they behave around us.
