This video was taken from our 2019 Michael Ellis Workshop that was held at Leerburg in December.
In this video Michael explains his views on the role of genetics in dog training and how genetics dictate motivation. Michael explains how he uses that knowledge when he designs motivation building play sessions for his own dogs.
He also talks about how trainers make the mistake of ignoring genetics when designing a training program and how putting personal training goals ahead of our dog’s genetic ability causes problems.
In late January 2020 Leerburg will be releasing an online course that contains up to 18 hours of video from Michael's workshop. The material is this course is outstanding.
