(Part 2) Dina Zaphiris – The Behavior Savior

Dina’s been training dogs in Los Angeles for 20 years.  Her passion is training dogs that can help save people’s lives, whether it’s in search and rescue or early cancer detection.  She uses rewards and games in training, and believes that you never stop rewarding your dog altogether, though you do always ask for more and better behavior to earn it.  One of her favorite games to play with dogs is tug, because it’s so interactive and gives you a great way to combine training and fun.  She demonstrates how to make any dog love tug and how to make it into a fun training game.
