Improve Your "I-Cue": Learn the Science of Signals
Kathy Sdao

Cueing for reliable dog training is the focus of this seminar for class instructors, dog trainers, and dog owners, all of whom want compliance. They want their dogs to respond to "commands" accurately and quickly. People often attribute a dog's failure to respond instantly to dominance, stupidity or stubbornness. It is more likely that these mistakes result from the dog's confusion (or insufficient motivation); the dog doesn't know what the trainer wants because the cues are unfamiliar, inconsistent or unclear.

In this training seminar, you will learn to improve the process by which you choose, add, change and maintain cues in animals you train. By training skillfully, you will be able to minimize the amount of static in the signals you send your dog, providing a clearer channel of communication.

An understanding of behavioral cues will also pave the way for the creation of conceptual cues that go beyond eliciting simple movements. Your dog can understand more than you might think, and this seminar will help you teach these advanced skills! This hands-on dog training workshop by Kathy Sdao in Seattle combines lecture, video examples and several exercises with owners & dogs. Kathy walks you through the steps to build strong meaningful cues in this continuing education seminar.

This seminar was presented by Ahimsa Dog Training of Seattle, WA in June, 2008.

Kathy Sdao is an associate Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist based in Tacoma, Washington and has spent the past two decades as a full-time professional trainer for dogs and other animals.

For her first ten years as an animal trainer, Kathy trained marine mammals at a research laboratory for the University of Hawaii, in the open-ocean for the US Navy and at a zoo in Tacoma Washington. Since 1995, Kathy has focused on training land-dwelling animals: dogs and their people.

Kathy meets with dog owners in Tacoma, Seattle, and other areas in the Puget Sound region to design behavior modification plans, to teach basic manners to their dogs and to prepare for competition. She also travels extensively to lead dog training and behavior workshops that make the science of animal training accessible and practical for dog trainers and owners alike.
