Pack structure is the cornerstone of our training program. Pack structure starts with pack leadership, establishing rules and boundaries. There are many different types of leadership, and this can be the cause for much debate.
Leading by example is the origin of Canine Moxy.
It is well documented that dogs learn by imitation. We need to make sure we are setting the right examples for our dogs. When the dog makes a mistake, we need to check ourselves first and ask what we did wrong, what we can do better next time as well as note what we did do properly and what was highly successful. This is how we shape ourselves and continue to develop as leaders and role models. This is also where our transformational leadership begins. Our program will not only make you a better leader, dog trainer and handler, but a better spouse, friend, relative, co-worker and citizen.
Our goal is to empower you and your dog, while reducing the use of force in teaching. Through transactional leadership we teach the dog to work for rewards. After learning a few basic commands, you can even combine transaction leadership and leading by example to teach your dog a command to watch, interpret and reproduce your actions. While it might sound very basic, this actually highlights how dogs have evolved to understand and have meaningful lifelong relationships with humans.
Many clients see that after changing their pack structure, there is a domino effect on the rest of their dog’s behaviors and mental state. You will see a happier, more confident and expressive companion.
