Foundation of the Program: Everything we do is positive reinforcement training with Tellington TTouch mixed in. There’s no choke chains or electric shock collars here! We promote responsibility and ownership with children toward their family dog, teamwork, and trust.
Curriculum Highlights: Jenn Merritt, CPDT-KA, our cofounder, wrote our curriculum using over 13 years of professional dog training experience, with sister Kim’s 8 years of experience homeschooling her kids. What a great combo! It teaches dog safety and dog bite prevention through the use of fun games and reward based training. Three central themes throughout program include “Loving your good dog,” “Learning about your good dog,” and “Teaching your good dog.” “I Can” empowerment statements help children build self-confidence in knowing the proper way to interact with dogs. It’s fun for the whole family!
Contains: Each kit contains 4 activity guides, 20 training game cards, access to 40 online videos, 8 stickers, and 1 Dog Smart Card Game.
