Training resourcesPosted: March 16, 2010
Susan has been delving back into training techniques. As she’s re-researching what fits best with her dogs and the pack’s lifestyle, I suggested she check out Patricia McConnell’s DVD Both Ends of The Leash. This was filmed during a two-day seminar. Pat McConnell is a first-rate behaviorist. Like my Ana, she appears to be great with both species – the canine and human. She takes advantage of a dog’s sense of space, clearly demonstrating this on the DVD. Learning from her (and Ana) I have tweaked – perhaps that should be torqued! – some of my handling techniques.
In her quest Susan came upon an excellent digital resource, Ian Dunbar’s Dog Star Daily.
Do yourself and your dog/s a favor. Spend some time at either site.
