Orientation for ORANGE - On Your Mark, Let's Go (For Rescue Groups)
Open Invitation for Rescue Groups
Want to know what the A Sound Begining program is all about and how it can help you to make adoptions "stick"? This is an open invitation for rescue workers and volunteers to attend an orientation session for our Path to Success classes.
Come to an Orange orientation session (the first class in the Path to Success series) where you can learn about what it is that we do and how to educate your foster homes and adopters on canine communication and basic skills in positive reinforcement training.
Adoptions DO stick when adopters have the tools needed at their fingertips. And when foster homes can support those adopters by having answers that are helpful to the dog, then the chances of them keeping that dog safe and sound are greater.
ORANGE Class Focus - On Your MARK, Let's GO
THIS IS THE CLASS THAT MUST BE TAKEN FIRST and it is without your dog. Let’s get started with the first steps on the Path to Success by:
- Using SOUND and SCENT to help provide a calm environment for your dog
- Learning how dogs communicate and how your own body language is interpreted by them
- Using marker based training for a totally positive approach to a healthy learning environment for both you and your dog
- Avoiding conflict - Safely prevent guarding of resources by learning how to handle food, toys, and objects of value
- Using a Safe Place to help your dog comfortably fit in to his new home
- Teaching acceptance of handling and grooming
- Increase good behavior by learning how to capture and reinforce
- Name Recognition (Attention)
- Sit (Say Please!)
- Touch (Management)
