This is an introduction to dog sports and how these training techniques relate to owner-trained service dogs.  A service dog is one specially trained to perform a task or work that aids a person with a physical or emotional disability, allowing them more freedom to live independently.  The course will cover basic psychological principles of operant conditioning used with animal training.  There will be hands-on opportunities for basic dog training that require the application of operant learning techniques.  Dogs will be provided; other dogs will need to be pre-approved.
