Step Up Your Training for Dog Sports

Video Description:

Step Up Your Training for Dog Sports DVD set by Michele Pouliot is a full day seminar that will increase your dog’s precision and prepare for top performances in fun and positive ways.  You will learn how to:

  • Use platforms to take clicker training a step further for training positions and behaviors.
  • Prepare your dog to enjoy performing by establishing behavior chains.
  • Effectively plan performance cues to help your dog perform in different venues.
Michele uses lecture and power point for training specifics, but spends a lot of time with the working dog classes in the use of platforms in training. She uses her own dogs to demonstrate techniques using a platform.  In the live classes, Michele critiques training and gives helpful advice to the trainers in achieving their goals.  Platform training is covered A-Z and teaches you how to obtain the positions and behaviors that you desire.
“Michele Pouliot is one of my training heroes. She combines a ridiculous amount of practical expertise with a thorough and engaging teaching style. Plus, her many video clips are clear, relevant and inspiring. Every time I watch her teach, I learn something new.”
