What are concepts?
Your dog is unique. Every dog has a specific set of character traits, or concepts, that make up their individual personality. That’s what makes them so special. These can be shaped, nurtured, and developed by playing games.
Just like us, some dogs are naturally better at some concepts than others. How skilled they are at any particular concept influences the choices they make on a day-to-day basis.
For example, some dogs are naturally calmer than others, yet some may lack focus or give up easily when asked to do a particular task. Conversely, another dog may have laser focus on an object or task, but struggles to disengage and relax in the presence of distractions. There is no right or wrong answer here – it’s all about balance. Every dog can benefit from concept training, and we can help you to identify which areas your dog may need to strengthen with a bespoke plan tailored to you and your dog. For each concept, there are games that can help your dog perform better within that skill or concept.
