Using Back Chaining to Train Tricks, Dog Sports and Real World Behaviors

811front-01

 

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.

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 1 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 2 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 3 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 4 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 5 (8 Weeks)

In this group, I will share puppy performance training tips (videos, concepts, discussions, photos of my puppy plans and photos of my puppy) as I work with my new puppy. When something important comes up and I feel that others should know about it, then I will share the tip here on this page only.

The tips in this program will be specific for puppies. However, all of my training methods, games and training in general can be used with a puppy or dog.

Anyone building a working relationship with their dog for a specific dog sport will benefit from being a part of this group. I am calling it “Performance Puppy Tips”, because you will see me work with my new puppy as well as discuss important topics that come up as I train/work with my puppy.  You will also see how I work with and incorporate my other dogs into the training process along side my new puppy.

Members will be able to ask me questions and engage in discussions that pertain to specific posts. However, I will not answer training questions! If you have a training questions/issue and would like help solving it, I offer “One on One Online Training Classes”.  2 weeks for $40 and I will help you with your training needs through video and written plans. www.pamsdogtraining.com Pam’s Dog Academy also offers Online Classes:  Clicker Training Basics, Loose Leash Walking, Rock Solid Stay, Play-N-Train Recalls and Insider Secrets to Canine Freestyle. If you are a CPDT, you can earn CEU’s when you take my online classes.

This group is for ANYONE: Trainers, pet dog owners, those preparing for competition and those that just want to have fun and build a better relationship with their dog!

If your goal is to compete or simply just to have fun with your dog, the most important thing you can do is build a strong positive relationship with your dog.  A relationship that is built on trust and cooperation.  Once you have a great working partner/relationship with your dog, the sky is the limit as to what you both can accomplish.

I look forward to sharing my insight and ultimately helping you train your performance puppy or dog through throughout this program.

A few categories that I will be working on with my puppy:
Socialization
Handling
Focus Building
Learning Methods
Trick/Behaviors Training
Sport Foundation Training
Safety Behaviors
Recall Games
Building Calmness
Proofing Behaviors

All training methods are force free, positive and without punishment/intimidation!
