Hannah Branigan - Portland 2017
For a winning (or even qualifying) performance in the ring, we need accurate, precise behaviors, but we also need those behaviors to be highly reliable. We can’t just train until the dog gets it right; we need to train until he can’t get it wrong!
In this Session, Hannah Branigan will explore the process for building robust, reliable behaviors. This process goes beyond simple distraction-proofing. We need complete understanding, flawless communication, and core skills that are so strong as to be automatic. What we need for super-fluent, unstoppable behaviors will be discussed, as will when and how to add distractions without increasing the error rate and putting our precious competition behaviors at risk.
