About the event

Based on the research Cameron Ford has conducted with Duke University, this class is for anyone with dogs 6 months and up.

Learning cognition testing gives you insights to approach communication with the dog you are working with to target your training whether it be for your companion dog, sport dog or working dog.

These Cognition tests (Brain Games) help you learn crucial information such as, is your dog strong in memory, is the dog a problem solver, how quick does it make inferences? Additional things these tests show are, does the dog easily follow gestural communication and what is your dog's laterality?

If you are a Law Enforcement Agency or Security Firm, these tests can help you select a better, more trainable dog. In conjunction with the normal K9 selection and evaluation steps agencies use, adding these K9 Brain games to your evaluation raises the percentage of dogs successfully picked to be working K9’s. 

If you do Agility, Mondio Ring, PSA, Nose/Scent work, or anything else... the information from these games help you understand your dog better and how to set up training sessions that get the most out of your dog.
