Competition is Great! But Not at a Cost to the Dog
Show Notes

Kay Laurence of Learning About Dogs and Sue McGuire of Sue McGuire Teaches Dogs, join forces for the fourth season of the hugely successful, Learning About Dogs podcast.

Season four features short, one subject podcast no longer than 10 minutes. Although try as we might, we are shooting for not much over five minutes. But one salient thought. This episode is a bit longer because it's a passionate topic; competition.

In this episode: "People who compete with their dog are right to train to standard. But this should never be at a cost to the dog."

Self-directed, online with unlimited lifetime access.

Build the Learning
As learning engineers we design access to rewards that shape the learning with guidance and suggestion. We cannot do the learning for our dogs, we can simply set up the situation that they learn from.

Management or Training
Find your pathway to suit your lifestyle of living with dogs. When you need management to temporarily support the learning, or choose training.
Discover the power of passive learning and invest your energy to the active learning.

Reward Skills Course
Learn about the fascinating landscape of rewards and make them the centre of training and relationship.
Explore the different and diverse ways we can deliver rewards to bring excitement or relaxation, curiosity or confidence.

Sue McGuire offers a limited number of consultations and courses for small groups human/canine learners. Contact her through Sue McGuire Teaches Dogs.
