Suzanne’s elegant & effective technique for shy & fearful dogs has helped countless dogs around the world. While based in simple principles, Treat/Retreat does require skill to apply well. This technique can be used in class settings as well as at home & other settings. This workshop focuses on the specifics of using Treat/Retreat:
R-E-S-P-E-C-T + – Respect, autonomy & safety
Treats Aren’t the Trick – Why the dog’s volunteered responses are the key
Inside the Black Box Using intrinsic motivation to help the dog learn how to resolve the ongoing puzzle of “what to do!?”
Progressions: Approach, Contact, Group, Postures & Movements From the first cookie to confident interactions
Suzanne’s Treat/Retreat builds confidence, social skills, provides handlers with a new understanding of their dog’s zones, and helps shy & fearful dogs make huge strides. A must-have skill for trainers, rescue/shelter or vet staff, and for anyone who care for dogs who find people scary.
