As an agility instructor, I would come across a number of dogs that, despite obedience training, really struggled with calmness, focus, impulse control, and confidence. When I experienced similar problems in one of my own dogs, I started searching for solutions. As a biologist, I wanted to understand the physiological and behavioral responses to exciting or scary experiences. My research led me to Absolute Dogs and their Concept Training programs where, through the use of science-based games, we can reshape a dog's brain to build desired personality traits, while building a strong relationship with our dog.
