When puppyhood collides with adolescence... you need different training techniques. Successful adult dog training requires controlling the dog’s energy and reactivity to regain attention. Luckily, classical conditioning and all-or-none reward training techniques work like magic to produce calm and attentive dogs, whereupon lure/reward techniques make training lightning fast. Exercises include: Jazz-up & Settle Down, Classical Conditioning, All-or-None Reward Training Good Behavior, Attention and Walking on Leash, Lure/Reward Training Sit, Down, Stand, Stay and Heel.
