The Crazy2Calm Canine Coaches has been working on hard on putting together our SD Foundations Class and with that we've made 2 great videos to help all those new owner trainers that are just getting started.
Public Access Training
Public Access Training (PAT) is one of the hardest things to do because we tend to think of training in a short amount of time, perhaps what we will accomplish in the next 1-3 months. However PAT is one of those things that we work on for closer to 2 years and still touch up for the whole working life of our Service Dogs. Unfortunately there are very few resources out there for new owner trainers to help you get started along this journey. Therefore we wanted to create a video to cover some the key aspects of starting inside the house, in outdoor environments, in pet friendly businesses, and last but not least non-pet locations.
The video is long so there are 2 parts and places to stop in the middle for a break!
