You will learn how to train dogs to do a variety of important life saving behaviors that all dogs should know and practice (Stay, Come when called, Leash Walking, Impulse Control and more) as well as safety behaviors (wearing a muzzle, cone of shame, taking medications and so much more).

Pamela will take you through a variety of ways to condition your dog to accept wearing a cone and a muzzle, enjoy being handled and even massaged. She explains why it is important to train dogs to enjoy these things and not wait until an emergency happens when the dog is scared and worried because all of a sudden he has to wear a muzzle or a cone.

Do you or your clients have a difficult time getting dogs to take medication? This DVD will go over a few non-traditional ways on how to get your dog to take and enjoy taking his medication, without any struggle. Finally giving your dog medication will be easy and stress free for you and your dog.

Does your dog hate to have his nails trimmed? Are you worried that you will clip them too short and cause your dog pain? Pamela goes over a few ways to clip/file your dogs nails and how to find a method that works for you.

You will also learn what you will need if an emergency or disaster strikes, such as first aid kits and what to put in them, handouts that could help you relocate your dog if he were to go missing and other valuable ideas on how to be prepared for anything. Accidents, emergencies and disasters happen when you least expect it. Are you prepared? Do you know what you would do? Do you have a plan?

This DVD will help you get your dog and your family prepared with plan and know what to do when faced with an emergency, disaster or accident.

You will be able to purchase this DVD from Pam’s website at http://pamsdogacademy.tictail.com/product/using-back-chaining-to-train-tricks-dog-sports-and-real-world-behaviors  $39.95

This DVD goes over the in’s and out’s of training back chains and discusses a few non- traditional back chaining concepts. You will learn what back chains are and why you should use back chaining.

If you have tried to learn how to back chain in the past, but felt it was too confusing, then you will love this DVD. The goal is to teach you how to train using back chains in a simple understandable way. If you have been training back chains for years and would like a new perspective with new ideas on how to train back chains then this DVD would benefit you as well.

You will learn important concepts such as: Verbal/Visual Cues, Stimulus Control, Variable Reinforcement Schedules, Rewarding in Position, Repetition, Adding Criteria, Fluency, Premack Principle, Anticipation, Using Extra Cues, Fading Cues, Proofing, Systematic Learning and Conditioned Reinforcers. Knowing and understanding these concepts will help you be successful when training and building back chains.

The behaviors taught in this DVD range from tricks (clean up your toys, go to the crate and close the crate door, and much more), dog sports (canine freestyle routines, disc dogging routines, flyball, agility contacts, weave poles, rally and more), to real world behaviors (no jumping on people, going inside the house, getting in the car, etc) with step by step instruction on the process to back chaining each one. You will find training back chains to be easy and fun with Pamela Johnson’s DVD.

 

Snuffle Matz are now for sale…

Pam’s Dog Academy is now selling SNUFFLE MATZ.

Snuffle matz are great for dogs and cats…

Snuffle Matz Video

What can you use snuffle matz for:

If you have a dog that eats his meal too quickly, you can put his food in the snuffle matz and your dog will have to search around to find his food.  This will slow him/her down, which is much better for your dog.

If you have a dog that does not like to eat his/her dinner, the snuffle mat acts as a fun game for your dog to use his/her nose to search around and find food.

It gives your dog a job to do…

It helps calm dogs because as they sniff around to find the food, the sniffing has a calming effect on your dog.

It is great just to use as a puzzle toy where your dog has to use his/her nose to find food items.

If you have a cat, you can sprinkle cat food or treats and allow your cat to search for his/her food.

It is fun to put cat nip on and let your cat rub and roll around on it and enjoy the cat nip…

Snuffle matz are made with a plastic kitchen sink liner and fleece.

They are also machine washable.

Warning:

1.  You should ALWAYS Supervise your dog/puppy to ensure they are not eating the snuffle mat.

2.  Remove the snuffle mat when there aren’t any treats left in it.

3.  USE COMMON SENSE!  If your dog tears or eats items such as fleece toys or other dog toys when they are left out, then your dog might also do that same behavior with the snuffle mat.
