Play-Based Training

  • Stylin Paws 2180 Northwest 156th Street Clive, IA, 50325 United States (map)

Did you know that engaging your dog in play is an incredibly effective way to train?  Just like us, dogs learn best while they are having fun and feeling good.  Training through play maximizes the benefits of exercise, stress release, and mental stimulation, a win-win combination for any dog!  We’ll investigate the important function of canine play as displaced prey drive, cover play behavior deficit for dogs who show a lack of play, and teach hyperaroused dogs how to “put on the brakes” during play sessions.
