About this webinar

There is evidence that behavioural advice when given to puppy owners, results in fewer problem behaviours such as mouthing of people, inappropriate toileting, mounting and more importantly from a wider social perspective, aggressive behaviours towards unfamiliar dogs and people.

– Is it enough to just tell an owner to socialise’ their puppy?
– Can we deliver a better set of tools to accompany this?
– Who can intervene with other learning, and how?
 -What key advice needs to be given to prevent later behavioural problems?
– Specific training that assists with this puppy early learning, specifically with emotional learning.
 -Why this is important for any puppy?
– How this approach fits into the pet care community especially with owners, and as early as possible
 -Can we standardise practice advice, ideally in consultation with experienced trainers and behaviour professionals?

Harness your Hunter through Predation Substitute Training

About the Webinar

Harness your Hunter through Predation Substitute Training

Conventional training protocols stifle the dog’s natural predatory behaviours through punishing or constantly forcing them to return. These restrictive protocols work against the dog’s nature and against what they want most: to go for a hunt!

Predation is an inner need that makes our dogs happy. Suppressing those natural urges is like putting a lid on a boiling pot. Eventually, that pressure needs to escape, and without a proper outlet, it’s probably going to get messy.

Predation Substitute Training (PST) is a motivation-based and need-oriented training program, designed to stop uncontrolled predatory chasing and to provide safe outlets for our dog’s natural drive.

Instead of making discipline the nagging factor that spoils the fun, this training system will help dogs and their guardians to grow as a team and go hunting together!

In this presentation we are going to discuss:

  • What is predation?

  • Why do our dogs love to hunt?

  • Why is predatory behaviour so hard to interrupt?

  • How to structure walks to set our dogs up for success

  • Tools to help the dog to control their urge to chase in a healthy way.

  • Games to express predatory energy in a safe, controlled environment
