Joel Silverman Two Day “Hands On” Seminar

As of now, we do not yet have the appropriate CEUs from CPDT and IAABC yet, but once we get those numbers, we will add those to this page. This two day sixteen-hour dog training seminar is geared towards novices, dog trainers, pet owners, and people that are looking to get a good grasp on dog training. This is also geared toward pet sitters or dog walkers that might  have some thoughts of expanding their business to include dog training. This two day dog training seminar is also for people that are looking to take dog training a bit further, as Joel has included advance behaviors the entire second day. The seminar is given in a PowerPoint/ practical environment. 1/2 of the training given will involve easy to follow PowerPoint presentations, and the other 1/2 will involve “hands on” dog training. Joel will also have all his books, DVDs, and Alternative Training Collar there to purchase.

Advanced Behaviors

This second day of dog training is geared towards advanced behaviors, and this entire day consists of 25% Powerpoint, and 75% practical dog training. Control will be an important factor, and Joel will go into a variety of ways that control is used to create distance between the owner and dog.

  • Chaining behaviors
  • Training “marks”
