Dog Psychology and Behavior Shadow Program
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.
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.
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.
