Are you having trouble finding a program that can teach you about dog psychology?

It’s not hard to find a good dog training school and it’s not hard to find a company that will sell you a franchise and make you a “trainer” in the process.  But what seems to be a challenge is finding someone who truly knows & understands the psychology of dogs, humans and the dynamic way they influence one another.  

You now have an opportunity to learn about dog psychology, behavior and training from one of the nations best dog behavior experts and one of Cesar Millan’s long time head trainers.  Since 2014 Todd has been a head trainer, event producer and curriculum developer for Cesar at his Training Cesars Way Fundamentals Courses. Together they have helped teach over 1,000 worldwide students the fundamentals of dog behavior and psychology.  

All of the lessons Todd has learned from Cesar can now be yours along with lessons from other great trainers he has worked with and learned from including Linn Boyke, Colleen Steckloff, Martin Deeley, Steve del Savio, Art Ortiz, and Yoa Cristobal.

My experience with Todd was incredible. His knowledge for dogs is second to none but knowledge for humans is even better! He taught me a lot, and have taken so much from it and use his advice with every client I have. Thank you Todd, this was well worth the investment!

Now you can learn with Todd, one on one.

Over the years Todd has worked with and handled thousands of dogs and their humans.  When you attend the Dog Psychology Shadow program you will learn first hand from Todd’s knowledge and experience into how dogs think, communicate and learn.  You will learn the instinctive way a pack truly works and you will learn about the ways humans influence a dogs behavior - and then you will learn to develop strategies to improve those behaviors.

This program is primarily for dog training professionals but can be tailored to fit those in rescue, owners of multiple dogs, groomers, vets, or dog walkers. If you are looking to expand your knowledge of how to understand and modify dog behavior - you will benefit from this program.  

The program is practiced out of a real home kennel environment that Todd has turned into a learning experience for students and his training clients. The sole purpose of this home is for teaching humans how understand, guide and motivate dogs and this gives clients and students the chance to practice real life scenarios in a natural setting.

When possible we like to book 2 students per class as we find it helps them be more relaxed.

Showing a student how to help a dog be calm in a stressful kennel environment.

Students will:

  • Attend training consultations. Learn first hand how Todd does his private appointments for aggression, fear, anxiety and more. Many great tips to improve your teaching skills come from this part of the program.

  • Spend time handling dogs at a rescue or shelter. How to get dogs calmly in and out of kennels and how to get dogs calm in front of shelter excitement will be practiced. We will also practice teaching shelter dogs how to properly walk on a leash. Mastering the leash is a must.

  • Learn Todd’s philosophy of dog behavior and psychology and the power of understanding energy. Todd will help you learn about yourself, your energy and how you affect the dogs around you.

  • Learn personal awareness, body language and breathing/relaxation techniques. Different types of relaxation and meditation skills will be practiced.

  • Learn how to read and interpret a dog’s body language - and you will learn how dogs read and interpret us.

  • Learn how a dog uses their nose, eyes and ears to decide fight/flight/avoid/accept. This helps breakdown the way to address unwanted beahviors in a simple, profound way.

  • Learn strategy development for dealing with aggression, fear, anxiety, over-excitment, leash reactivity, obsessive issues and more.

  • Practice pack walks

  • Practice with and learn about the many tools available.

Learning to handle different dogs with different personalities at the same time will truly teach you what the "moment" is all about. Dogs only follow us when we are calm, confident and we have a strong intention.

I have shadowed Todd Langston on three separate occasions. It has been the best thing I have done on my path to becoming a canine behavior specialist. I didn’t realize how much I needed to learn until I spent time with Todd. It is a unique opportunity to be taught one on one by someone that has been a successful canine behavior expert for many years following Cesar’s teachings. My time spent with Todd allowed me to join him on actual appointments, receive instruction that was customized to my questions and goals, get feedback on my performance, and gain insight into personal issues that were holding me back from progressing in my career. Todd is extremely knowledgeable and has a teaching style that is easy to comprehend. I was learning every minute I spent with him. I highly recommend shadowing Todd Langston. Looking back now, I couldn’t imagine not doing it.
