Some of the things we will do during our weekly club gatherings includes:
Join Friday Club:
Meets every Friday from
4pm - 6pm
Basic and Advanced Obedience
Club members will be able to work on their obedience and advanced obedience challenges. We will demonstrate all levels of obedience. This teaches you to teach your dog to manage his/her own load regardless of distractions. Load is "pressure and conflict". Your dog wants to chase a cat, jump the fence, run after cattle...because his/her innate drives, prey drive for instance, creates conflict and pressure that overwhelms your dogs brain so he/she responds to primitive drives and does exactly what nature intended. We teach you to teach your dog to manage that drive, to maintain calm, and obey commands even under the heaviest of distractions.
Consider this part of club equivalent to a "group class" opportunity for obedience using a balanced approach to dog training (rewards and corrections).
Drive Building and Bite Development
Many people refer to this as "bite club". Where people get together with their dogs and improve the dogs ability to maintain load, increase bite strength, and learn to release the bite on command. Traditional bite clubs are limited/focused on sports and many have become drama clubs instead of professional dog training clubs. Our work will be to improve your dog as a protection dog and to help you comprehend how your own dog will respond to specific threats. For the safety of your self, your property and your family. We will demonstrate what a professionally trained dog can/should do for it's owner. You will witness improvement every week.
We are taking the ghetto out of bite clubs, we are removing the drama from the clubs. You will even learn to be a decoy through this club. You will learn from true professionals.
Sharpening the nose and scent detection
Top Tier K9 was the first to train a dog to hunt for and indicate on the COVID-19 virus. We lead the world in scent detection and the training of scent detection dogs using our Foundation Dogs® as a distributed platform with a scalable scent portfolio.
In club, you will also be able to participate in our scent detection programs and add additional scent capability to your dog.
We will often use decoys to amp up a dog's prey drive and not release the dog for his highly desired bite until he successfully finds specific odor. This is referred to as "Task Prioritization" and is a world class process to teach dogs how to manage their own innate desires, choosing instead to complete a specific task before reward. (satisfaction over gratification)
Tracking: The most important thing to teach
In club, we will demonstrate tracking techniques that have been used to train the greatest dogs on the planet. The more you track your dog the better he will be in bite work, scent detection, obedience, advanced obedience and even a better companion.
Nothing is more important to teach a working dog than tracking. Top Tier K9 Foundation Dogs® already track so their owners will be able to take their dogs to the next level in club.
