About the class:
The amazing Sarah Owings joined us earlier this year to talk about celebrating approximations (what this means and how it can help you with your training), share about her training rubric (see link below) and put it all into action with Ryan doing some live training with Fibi-dog & working on the start of an open mouth behaviour. Sarah Owings and live attendees then provided live feedback to Ryan using Sarah’s Rubric (some suggesting this was the best ATA web-class experience EVER).
In this class we are going to flip the Roles and Sarah will be offering a live demonstration sharing how she uses her own Rubric when training her dog Tucker! We will intentionally also be talking about ‘Paralysis of Analysis, trainer frustration and more!
Get ready – because this is going to be AWESOME!
