About this course

Positive Dog training is a team game. But is it really? 

Join an amazing panel conversation to explore the concepts of permission, consent, cooperation and responsibility for the human and canine side of training.  With decades of collective experience and a keen curiosity to dig into current best practices, each member of the panel has a unique experience and perspective to share.   They will be exploring 10 questons and offering their experiences and considerations of the issues and applications of consent, cooperation and  responsibility in animal training. If you are able to join live you will have an opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion. If you aren't able to join live the recording will be available afterwards.
