Come and join us for what will, no doubt, be a fantastic weekend of geeking out on all things dog training with Hannah Branigan, who is presenting for this first time in Scotland.
Whether you are a dog trainer, compete in dog sports (obedience, rally, flyball, agility, IPO,other ring sports), or are a dog training enthusiast, this is the weekend for you.
Day 1 – learning about the various concepts of motivation, focus and impulse control. Many dog and human teams struggle with various aspects of these topics, learn effective, positive reinforcement based ways to deal with them.
Day 2 – distraction proofing effectively without stress or corrections. Many people who compete with or train their dogs, struggle with their dogs performing wanted behaviours in difficult environments, such as shows, competitions, in the presence of other dogs or busy areas. On day two, Hannah will teach you effective strategies for dealing with these problems.
Dog and handler teams will be worked 4 at a time. Your dog must be comfortable being left in your vehicle when not working as space is limited within the venue.

About the speakers:
With the belief that everyone (dogs and humans alike) learn best in an environment free of criticism,
Hannah breaks down complex skills into bite-sized, accessible pieces, and develops practical techniques that leave her students with a sense of achievement and success. She is on a mission to make training effective + enjoyable for dogs and their handlers, which means optimizing positive reinforcement techniques across species. She is fascinated by behavior and learning, and passionate about bringing innovative, science-based solutions to the dog/human learning space.
Hannah has a background in both human sports and biology. Now she applies that knowledge and experience to the world of animal training and canine competitive sports. She enjoys training and competing with her own dogs in a variety of sports, and has titled her dogs in Obedience, Agility, Conformation, IPO (Schutzhund), and Rally. Her competition obedience DVDs, Obedience FUNdamentals and Beyond FUNdamentals, have received rave reviews from trainers all over the world, and her students have earned advanced titles and in multiple countries.
While primarily interested in the training process, she finds the high scores, prestigious awards, and national rankings she has earned to be very reinforcing.
Hannah is the host of the popular dog training podcast, Drinking from the Toilet, which focuses on the (often inconvenient) intersection between positive reinforcement philosophy and reality.
Hannah is also a faculty member of the Karen Pryor Academy and has presented at several Clicker Expo events, and numerous other countries.
