Limited to just 30 participants, this 4 day intensive focuses on Suzanne's Relationship Centered Training (RCT), the physical, emotional & mental dog, the dog/handler relationship and more!

The Trainers' Workshop is designed for active trainers who want to learn more about Suzanne Clothier's Relationship Centered Training. This is NOT a beginner's seminar, but you do not need to be a professional to attend. You should have a good foundation in training principles, dog behavior and learning theory. Strong emphasis on the trainer/instructor perspective.

This workshop fills quickly, and is strictly limited in size to 30 participants. Register early to save your spot!

PRE-REQUISITE You must have attended at least 2 days (not necessarily consecutive) of seminar with Suzanne, and be familiar with her Relationship Centered Training approach. 2 days with me gives you a strong sense of who I am and what I can offer. I do this so that you're very clear that my approach is what you wish to learn, and you have a sense of where you are as a trainer/student. That helps keep the group coherent with a shared interest in RCT and my work. Please don't waste your time (or mine) by asking to be the exception. 

WHAT DO WE DO? 

This workshop is always an adventure in what has been learned, wondered about, experimented with, worked on, tried, discovered and explored. There is always a blend of practical hands-on work, experiential learning, video, lecture and guest speakers. We will work with our own dogs as well as those owned by others. You do not need to bring a dog to attend! We always have dogs available for hands-on practice.

Bring your curiosity, your joy in connecting with animals and the people who love them, your sense of humor, and a willingness to stretch your mind in new ways. Hawks Hunt Farm offers a lovely setting for stepping away from the daily grind and refreshing your spirit.

Planned for 2017

  • The Think & Learn Zone - what does it look like? how do we get the dog there? what exercises can help?
  • Training Triage - What's the Problem? 
  • The Elemental Questions - A "whole dog" approach to thoughtful & humane assessments
  • F.A.T. - Functional Assessment Tracking - help your clients understand their dog's behavior in a functional behavior framework
  • Observation Skills - New ways to improve your observation skills for both dogs & handler,
  • Hands On Practical Bones - A chance to practice the RCT basic exercises -- ACI, Let's Go, Go Hunt, Loose Leash Walking exercises, Puppy Politeness Poker, Follow Me, Ghost Handling, Treat/Retreat, In/Out, Really Real Relaxation Protocol and more
  • The RCT Training Games - Play these popular games to build your coaching & handling skills
  • Handling & Equipment Skills - Be effective! Help students safely deal with the pulling dog, learn how balance & posture affect handling, 2 handed and 1 handed holds, using a long line, balance rope,double-ended leads for use with head halters/harnesses, and more
  • Other Voices, Other Worlds - Using the many cooperative & patient co-teachers (ranging from tortoises to pigs, donkeys, horses, chickens, cats & cows) who live here at the farm
  • The Physical Dog - understanding movement, structure and their effect on behavior, performance and learning

Who Should NOT Attend? We strongly discourage the following:

  • Rigid, linear thinkers who want a tidy schedule & PowerPoint slide outlines for all sessions. Life isn't tidy, control is an illusion, flexibility is key. 
  • People without a sense of humor. Seriously. Stay home.
  • Folks who want recipes (except for our meals – we share those recipes!)

Participants are encouraged to bring a dog or not. You do NOT need a dog to benefit, and in fact, many first-timers are happy they came without a dog and could really focus on learning. Loaner dogs abound! Dogs with problems are welcome (provided they have not seriously injured any human or another dog).

Cost: $1,150.00

Register: To reserve your spot, a non-refundable deposit of $200.00 is required. Balance due in full by May 15, 2017. Only a handful spots are still available, so register early if you wish to attend.

EARLY BIRDDOG DISCOUNTWe have reached our Early BirdDog registration limit, so that discounted price is no longer available - amazing to have so many folks signed up so far in advance! Sorry for those who missed that opportunity. 

You'll be fed & watered in style, with breakfast, lunch, snacks & beverages included, plus group dinner on Saturday evening. Also included - workbook, t-shirt, and certificate of attendance.</p>

CEUS should be available for IAABC.
