Columbia, MO- October 21, 2014- Canine Training Systems, the leading provider of broadcast quality instructional training titles for sport, service and companion dogs, today announced that their most recent offering, Training Through Pictures with Dave Kroyer- Learning to Learn DVD has been awarded a 2014 Davey Silver Award.
Training Through Pictures with Dave Kroyer- Learning to Learn is a highly anticipated release from Canine Training Systems. Known as a teacher of trainers, a competitor, coach and judge, Dave Kroyer and his students have stood atop podiums in the arenas of Schutzhund/IPO, Mondio and French Ring Sport, Police K9, AKC Obedience, Agility, SAR and AKC Tracking. He has represented the United States Internationally on multiple World Teams while gaining notoriety both domestically and abroad. As a student of animal behavior, Dave's approach to training is intuitive, calculated and utilizes the tools and techniques of many disciplines and styles in a system of training that has helped his students achieve National and International success.
Featuring detailed instructional footage throughout, beautiful illustrative graphics and a step-by-step progression of the first 8 months of Dave's system, this title is ideal for anyone wanting a broad, comprehensive foundation in dog sport. This title features rare footage of the father of Classical Conditioning, Ivan Pavlov, and his experiments on salivary secretions. Beneficial to puppy owners, trainers with problem dogs or anyone wanting a more clear understanding of how to isolate behaviors. For any trainer wanting to establish or teach students to create a dynamic, interactive worker while establishing a common language, this title is a must have!
“This video title is very important because it provides a foundation not available in other productions”, commented Doug Calhoun, the President of Canine Training Systems. “There is a new generation of dog trainers that are getting bits and pieces of information from all over and to truly take a leap forward, you have to understand the steps. This title with Dave does just that, it's very clear in both word and visuals how the pieces fit together. Ultimately it's about understanding how to communicate with the dog in a way that allows training to progress without the clumsiness of not having a common lanuage while creating patterns of thought and motor skill that benefit training long term.”
"Although the DVD took quite a while to produce, the project was a major undertaking for a few reasons. Up to this point in dog sports, no one has really touched on this type of training and theory and the beginning stages are very 'conceptual'. It's not really a 'this is how to teach sit,down,heel behaviors' project. It's something MUCH greater and has many depths and layers to it. It was crucial my info made a clean transfer from outline to script into narration and video. Doug and CTS hit it outta the park!!! It's a beautiful production and I feel the info is ULTRACLEAR! I am super proud of the work everyone has contributed to the project" added Dave Kroyer.
- This production details a systematic approach that yields a strong partnership based on trust, reliable, clean dialog and a habit of correct performance
- The integration of auditory behavior markers into the training routine is demonstrated and efficacy is discussed
- Through shaping positive, clean habits, Dave circumvents many bad habits that are byproducts of traditional methods
- The dog is taught the concept of 'Targeting' which teaches the relationship of behavior first, then reward
- Through Targeting, the dog is "untethered" from the handler which removes the handler as a lure from the training environment and expands behavioral possibilities including motion work, send-aways, object guard, scent indication and more
- Because the foundation work in Dave's system is multi-dimensional, the concepts taught are beneficial for ANY dog sport- Kennel Club Obedience, IPO, Ring Sport, Agility, Nose Work, Police K9, pet training and more
- This Hi-Definition, 16:9 aspect ratio production is available on professionally authored and replicated DVD for playback on the widest variety of consumer equipment.
