It is done! I have completed the Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Comprehensive course – woo hoo! This is a course for the serious dog training enthusiast and I highly recommend it. I knew probably 60% of the course work already, from years of dog training, but I learned lots of new stuff, and have a pile of exercises from the class that I will continue to work on with Gracie. Now I just have to figure out what the next course is. I think it will be the KPA Concept Training, where you learn to use opposite cues (Bark/silent, etc.) and modifier cues (left/right) and such. Dogs even learn, in this course, to choose between two objects and bring you the one you requested. Should be a good challenge for Gracie and me. But we’ll take a little rest first and catch up on some other training before we launch into more new stuff.
