DOG TRAINING / HANDS ON is a concise overview of motivational training methods. Each student is "issued" a dog from the local community to practice new techniques, fitting equipment, play games and classroom procedures. Course I students will do "The Art of Shaping" - teaching dogs to paint a picture (a Dog Scouts of America badge) and a scenting exercise. We use the same methods used with the chicken training. Course II exercises will include chaining behaviors.
ETHOLOGY / BODY LANGUAGE follows the path of domestication; how dogs view our world; canine body language including stress identification and reduction; matters of space and resources; the social development of dogs with an emphasis on puppies; agnostic behavior. Lot's of video evaluation.
FAMILY DOG SKILLS / CHILDREN & DOGS instructs on supervision of children and dogs, good games to play, multitasking for parents of dogs and children. Also includes Bite awareness - how to keep dogs and children safe.
HUSBANDRY / DOG CARE Course I, Environmental Enrichment. Examples, demonstrations and products provided in several of the other listed topics.
INSTRUCTION / PEOPLE SKILLS includes crafting your information into messages readily understood by client learning styles. The six hats (E. DeBono) method of communication exchange; changing negatives into positives; explanation strategies, demonstration techniques, individual coaching methods.
LEARNING THEORY / APPLICATION Classical and operant conditioning, the power of extinction, surfing the extinction burst. Most of the information given is practiced throughout the course with chickens, dogs and each other! Learning theory is one category in the Legacy "Jeopardy" game. It was designed to help people prepare for the national CPDT examination.
OBSERVATION / PARTICIPATION, LEGACY CLASSES You will observe Legacy instructors and student instructors teaching one or more of the following classes: "Your S.O.C.I.A.L. Puppy", "Pet Dog Manners" I, "Pet Dog Manners II", and one of our twenty or so continuing education (Level III) classes. We practice collecting data for a dog and human ethogram, evaluating temperaments and methods.
PUPPY HEADSTART, SOCIALIZATION, TRAINING Students observe a class, then plan a lesson and teach (under supervision!) at one of our twice-a-week free puppy drop in session.
LIVE CLIENT ORIENTATION takes you inside Legacy Canine for a real client orientation night. Terry talks to new clients and demonstrates what should be covered in any orientation event.
