Tuesday 6th November – Rethinking Puppy Training & socialisation

Join Chirag in questioning the obvious when it comes to socialisation and puppy training.

From bite inhibition towards dogs and people, to the benefits and detriments of the ever-popular puppy play time during puppy training classes, Chirag will explore these topics together with you.

This seminar will also include a demonstration with a puppy.

Wednesday 7th November - Understanding, Managing and Modifying Problem Behaviours

This day will focus on exploring problem behaviours with an applied behaviour analysis approach.

Chirag will use video examples to discuss understanding, managing and modifying problems behaviours. These principles can be applied to all problem behaviours including fear, aggression and separation related problems.

Chirag will also discuss the topic often called “dealing with difficult clients”.
