Intellect training coves a range of advanced clicker training disciplines that is based on cognitive learning, self-control, and co-operative care. The outcome provides your dog with choices and the ability to generalise concepts.
Your dog will enhance their cognitive skills which is great mental stimulation. This is a suitable discipline for dogs unable to partake in sport that involve a lot of movement, and for dogs that need to learn to do static work. Aspects of this topic are also suitable for stimulated dogs and dogs that are unable to be handled for grooming or examinations.
Handlers will learn about building chains of behaviour, breaking exercises into manageable learning criteria and how to progress. This will hone your clicker skills and enhance your understanding of animal learning.
Intellect training workshops are broken into sections:
