Fenzi Dog Sports Academy
Feb 1 – March 14 (Registration opens Jan. 22nd)
Emotional resilience is a skill that can be developed but it is often not easy or intuitive. Learn to identify your triggers and explore what “monsters” are in your head (or under your bed) and then develop a plan to build advocacy and resilience using tools rooted in science. Improve your dog training and showing by looking in a mirror!
Human trigger stacking and reactivity are real – that straw that broke the camel’s back ends relationships and jobs and lays people right out. How can you reduce your stress when difficult people are part of your daily life?
Studies of note and importance to you in your training and showing as well as life more generally are considered throughout this course.
Gold students will have the opportunity to identify their own difficult situations/people, discuss a variety of tools and techniques to test and then discuss results. Silver students will be able to ask two specific questions or discuss their plans and ask more general questions. Bronze students will benefit from the lectures and resources as well as the discussion forums and a TA to assist them working through the course material.
