Training Exercises and Supplementals
Our class handouts and supplementals are from multiple high quality and trusted sources. Some handouts are adapted from Emma Parson’s “Teaching the Reactive Dog Class”, Karen Pryor Clicker Training, Nan Arthur’s “Chill Out Fido-How to Calm Your Dog” and handouts from Building Bonds. We ask that you use these handouts for your own personal use during the class and not distribute them without the permission of Building Bonds.
