Seminar List
3 Part Seminar Series with Trainer Ed Marshall
Fundamentals of Play 1 | Secrets to Good Obedience | Fundamentals of Play 2

Fundamentals of Play 1

Begin fundamentals of play with your dog to gain results and skills desired for Practical Protection Dogs. This training technique builds a calm, social dog that is willing to work for you. 

Begin to teach your dog desired behavior
Build both physical and mental skills for protection
Build upon your obedience with correct play 

You will learn verbal and non-verbal cues so you can communicate with your dog at a basic level. 

This will allow you to move on to play training fundamentals 2, increasing intensity of play and focus building to trial level.

Secrets to Good Obedience

Family protection dogs are required to respond to cues given by their handler. Learn how to positively stimulate your dogs desire to interact with you through a set of rules in our daily play.  

Everything the dog values comes from you. Begin total resource management, obedience, play engagement and creating a set of rules. All dogs that like to play enjoy this level of interaction from you.  

We should always be working on building a strong relationship with our dog. 

Building trust through structured play is number one for gaining clarity in all dogs. 

Fundamental of Play 2

Begin the second part of fundamentals of play with your dog. Prerequisites: completion of both fundamentals 1 and secrets to good obedience. You now have verbal & nonverbal cues present.

Begin targeting
Build upon existing physical and mental skills for function
Build upon your obedience with correct play 
Increase intensity, focus and duration

You will now begin building intensity, focus and duration during structured play. This level of k9 interaction begins satisfying a dog’s biological needs and drives when done correctly and completely. Which allows you to begin functioning training exercises for both obedience and practical protection with your dog.
