Root Beer Posted February 9, 2012 Report Share Posted February 9, 2012 Leslie McDevitt, the author of Control Unleashed, has just released a new DVD through Tawzer Video called "Pattern Games". The games are intended for the performance dog (any sport) and can be used as part of a foundation with a puppy or new older dog, or with a dog with training experience who needs some assistance with focus, enthusiasm, etc. The program is clicker based, and for those who have always been interested in using a clicker, but felt too clumsy as a handler, this is a fantastic program to get a start with the clicker in a way that is very new-handler friendly. The starting criteria for both dog and handler is super simple. If you are more experienced with a clicker, and/or working with this kind of foundation game, you will find that there are countless applications of these simple, yet incredibly valuable games. I recommend this for anyone who has a dog who struggles with focus and enthusiasm, either in a performance sport, or in general. I also recommend it for anyone who wants to get more experience with use of reinforcement and timing. The video is very reasonably priced and is available through Tawzer Dog: Tawzer Dog Enjoy!!
