Self Control Filmed Event and Workshop

22 June @ 9:30 am4:30 pm

growing calmness pt 2

Does your dog need a little more impulse control?

We love our dogs to have ‘pulse’ – that desire and drive to work, whether that’s for food or toys, and ultimately, experiences with us. But that does have to be balanced with the right level of impulse control. A dog who lacks impulse control is a dog who will chase the squirrel or the jogger in the park, swipe a sandwich off the kitchen counter or pull on the lead.

What struggles can you conquer by teaching your dog some self control?

  • Jumping on people
  • Stealing socks
  • Rolling in fox poo
  • Eating a dropped tablet
  • Chasing wildlife

These are just a few situations where growing self control skills can benefit your dog (and you too!).

During this filmed day, Tom and Lauren will help you learn new games targeted at growing this valuable skill. We will look at reinforcers, desire and ways to help your dog learn to make great choices through appropriate impulse control.

This day will be filmed, and you will be required to sign an electronic film waiver the week before the workshop.

Call the office to discuss your needs or book right now on the website!

Please bring a packed lunch/snacks and hot/cold drinks for the day.

Member £150
Non-member £165

We are looking forward to having you train with us! To help us ensure you have the best possible training experience, please arrive at the start time specified for this event. Devon Dogs is a Centre of Excellence training facility and we want to ensure all training change overs are smooth and easy.

We understand it is difficult to estimate arrival times and we know you will have planned for the unexpected in your journey! Should you arrive a little early, we recommend stopping at the Shell Services just off of the A30, only half a mile away from us. There is a Little Waitrose, Greggs, Subway and Burger King with tea/coffee and lots of healthy (or not so healthy!) snacks and prepared meals as well as toilet facilities. If you wish to go for a short walk, you can access the Granite Way in Sourton.

To get the best out of your training with us, please review this *awesome link* that includes what to bring for training, what you need if you are training in Bowerland Arena plus some helpful tips.

Please be aware that you may experience difficulties making a payment if you are using a mobile device.
