In Drive Building, we use motivational games, effective teasing, and controlled restraint to build a more driven dog. This workshop is for anyone interested in working on an advanced training relationship with their dog.

Benefits of Drive Building:

  • More intensity in the work

  • Achieves faster behaviors

  • More attentive

  • Becomes more tolerant of environmental stimuli

  • Taught to turn on and off, thus enabling control of nuisance behaviors

Drive Building is very rewarding. In the process of bringing our dogs to a higher state, we usually gain much insight into what motivates them, how they like to play, and which motivators they like more over others. 1st session in course is lecture.
