Thank you Denise Fenzi for a wonderful four days.
It was a hardy bunch who braved the elements to come and join Denise Fenzi with Dog & Bone in a particularly cold November but from the enthusiastically positive feedback it was well worth it.
Denise shared with us her techniques for motivating dogs to work with us. In each of the two-day seminars she showed us how motivation needs to be tailored to the needs of the individual dog. This involved partly seeing what most motivated the dog naturally and using that to create more motivators but also knowing when to calm as well as when to energise the dog.
Her advice may have been intended primarily for a dog sports market but was invaluable for anyone training any dog.
