This video is a rare glimpse into a private demo I did for a couple of pro trainers who came out to Buffalo to learn some of my techniques. The voices in the back are from Jeff Gellman of Solid K9 Training in Rhode Island, and Sean O’Shea of The Good Dog in LA. The dog is a foster who has no previous training. The idea of conversational leash work involves a lot of give and take. The goal is develop a sensitivity with the dog whereby the more he knows you are sensitive and aware of him, the more sensitive and aware of you he becomes in return. This a cooperative approach to dog training that aims at establishing a high level of mutual trust and respect very early on. The end result is a dog who works with you because he enjoys the process, and any external rewards and consequences serve simply to amplify that foundational relationship. I truly feel that work like this is the future of pet dog training, and dogmanship.
