What is the Canine Kinship Dog Training Method?
The Canine Kinship method of dog training is a holistic approach to dog training developed by Robert Brandau. It is based on the idea that dogs and humans have a natural bond and that training should be based on mutual respect, trust and understanding.
The Canine Kinship method emphasizes the use of positive reinforcement techniques, such as treats, toys, and praise, to encourage desired behaviors. It also emphasizes the importance of clear communication and consistency in training. The method also focuses on building a strong bond between the dog and the owner and promoting mutual trust and respect.
One of the unique elements of the Canine Kinship method is the use of a “language” of energy to communicate with dogs. This includes the use of specific body posture, vocal tones, and energy levels to communicate with dogs in a way that they can understand.
The Canine Kinship method also places a strong emphasis on addressing any underlying emotional or physical issues that may be causing behavioral problems in dogs. This includes addressing issues such as fear, anxiety, and stress, through techniques such as desensitization and counter-conditioning.
In summary, the Canine Kinship method is a holistic approach to dog training that focuses on mutual respect, trust and understanding, positive reinforcement, clear communication, consistency, and addressing underlying emotional or physical issues that may be causing behavioral problems. It’s designed to help dogs and humans to establish a deep and lasting bond, where they can learn to communicate effectively with each other and build a strong relationship.
