We help you to stop your dog’s predatory chasing by teaching him focus, engagement and relaxation and by giving him suitable outlets for his high prey drive.

Just follow the step-by-step instructions to see real-life results.

Basics

What is predation? Why does your dog love to hunt so much? Why is predatory behavior so hard to interrupt?

Instructions

A variety of games and exercises for all situations, instructed live by us and backed up with video material.

Individual

Instruction and individual feedback in a small group, custom tailored to work for you and your dog.

Q&A

Every week there is time for your questions, we evaluate (voluntarily) submitted videos of your training and give you direct feedback to support you on your way.

What our clients say

I was struggling with handling Lalo’s high prey drive and walks were a challenge for us as he would constantly hunt and chase squirrels hitting the end of the leash and barking. After learning about PST and partaking in a workshop, our walks have completely changed. Lalo has activities to fill his hunting needs and can sit at a distance and watch a squirrel. He is calmer on his walks and disengages on his own from squirrels to play his games.

Danelle K., Canada

… how different Simone’s approach is to the common things you hear about prey drive. Giving dogs appropriate outlets for their natural needs has always been a priority of mine and this course teaches you techniques and games that are exactly that. I enjoyed the videos that were filmed with her own dogs and client dogs after explaining the theory to see what the methods will look like in the real world.

Linda W., Australia

Before Predation Substitute Training, I was being dragged behind my dog while she gleefully chased cats. Thanks to your clear and concise protocols, I was able to show her how we can hunt together! She is so driven to play the games with me, and it has strengthened our relationship and communication.

Joy S., USA

Having been a street dog until 1.5 years old, my Border Collie mix Samson had a long reinforcement history with chasing animals – from rabbits to deer. His habit of merry-go-rounding when he saw animals made leash training that much more difficult and frustrating. Transitioning to calm ‘stalking’ was such a difference not only on my end of the leash, but was a much more natural and overall calm behaviour for Samson who was already feeling frustrated by his new city life. Could not recommend more!
