Ever wonder if your dog can imitate what he or she sees? Can your dog learn something by watching another dog or person perform the same action? Now you can teach your dog to be a COPYCAT.

The science of social learning is getting more recognition through scientific research and various publishing in the science and dog training world. There is a natural tendency for dogs to imitate us since they are social creatures as we are. If you think about them digging in the back yard after you did some yard work, or attempting to unlatch the back gate. Usually, we find these talents rather bothersome, so we suppress our dog’s initiative to imitate us, but what if we could harness this enthusiasm, and put it to good use by putting it on cue?

This class will teach you the basics of how to train your dog to imitate you using cues your dog already knows. From there, you will be able to tell them to DO IT! for new behaviours they’ve never learned before, all just by watching you! It is a great and fun addition to your usual training technique and will enable your dog to learn some very complex skills.
