Unleash your dogs genius by doing brain games.
This course is for you and your dog to use your brains and
work together by putting the fun back into Training.
What is Cognitive Thinking?
Cognitive development is the ability to think and understand. It is the part of the brain responsible for problem solving, processing information, conceptual learning, perceptual skills, memory, creativity and brain development using cognitive psychology.
We’ll be concentrating on Visual, Audio, Scent and Sensual skills, to really stretch you and your dogs ability to work as a team and problem solve. There are many games that can be played using cognitive skills, using memory skills and much more!
These workshops are for dogs over 8 months of age (due to brain development). Some targeting skills would be useful but not essential and it would help if the handler is familiar with marking behaviour whether by clicker or verbally.
These are very impressive skills for your dog to have and can help in many other ways, such as behaviour and general well being.
We only take 10 dogs per class to ensure there is no overcrowding. The course will last 6 weeks Tuesday evening and each week you receive hand-outs on the work you have done in class that week so you can continue training at home. You book for the full course and make payment within 3 days of your booking to confirm place in class. Classes are held at St Cyprians Church Hall, Birchvale Road, Sheffield, S12 4XY. The full course cost is £75.00
