Canine Enrichment (Emotional Development)
Helping Dogs Build Confidence & Stability
Canine enrichment activities are sprinkled throughout the curriculum in order to help dogs build confidence and explore their instincts like sniffing and foraging. These activities allow trainers to bond with their students, creating a trusting relationship and improving the training experience overall.
Every dogs’ needs, interests and motivations are unique. Customizing and providing an outlet for a students’ specific desires decreases anxiety and increases emotional stability.
As dogs age, their likes and dislikes change. They can become more social, or more selective. They can desire more advanced engagement or more relaxation. At the end of the 6 month program, parents receive a Graduation Report. The document details the dog’s training progress but also expands on what the teacher has learned about the dogs unique personality.
The thorough report covers how to continue reinforcing command reliability and also identifies what ongoing activities will be best suited to support the students emotional growth and overall happiness for post-grad life.
