Presentation given at the 2017 Conference
In this 20-minute talk, Emily will sum up ethical techniques used to maintain behaviors for high level performance in competition and working dogs. The techniques will be described in a way in which they can be easily understood and carried out by the average pet dog owner. Emily’s intention is to bust the myth that pressure is needed when the stakes are high. She will then showcase a selection of insights on this topic from trainers she deems to be the most successful in their field.
