Conventional training protocols stifle the dog’s natural predatory behaviors through punishing or constantly forcing them to return. These restrictive protocols work against the dog’s nature and against what they want most: to go for a hunt!

Predation is an inner need that makes our dogs happy. Suppressing those natural urges is like putting a lid on a boiling pot. Eventually, that pressure needs to escape, and without a proper outlet, it’s probably going to get messy.

Predation Substitute Training (PST) is a motivation-based and need-oriented training program, designed to stop uncontrolled predatory chasing and to provide safe outlets for our dog’s natural drive.

Instead of making discipline the nagging factor that spoils the fun, this training system will help dogs and their guardians to grow as a team and go hunting together!

In this presentation Simone is going to discuss:

  • What is predation?
  • Why do our dogs love to hunt?
  • Why is predatory behaviour so hard to interrupt?
  • How and why does Predation Substitute Training work?

CEUs: PPAB 1, CCPDT 1, KPA 1, PMCT 1, & IAABC Pending
