This webinar will cover the effect of time and duration on training and behavior modification.
The issue with time is that it is hard to see its impact unless we actively look for it. Time runs through so many skills like a silent partner. Failing to consider the impact of time can lead us to feel that a dog’s behavior is “unpredictable” and that things happen “without cause". However, if we recognize that it plays a role, we can work time into training plans for better results. By carefully working on temporal factors, we can create a calm dog who will wait patiently and with confidence.
