Oh Deer!

Predation Substitute Training for dogs that love to chase

Is hunting your dog’s favorite hobby? Instead of being the nagging factor who spoils the fun, I show you how to start hunting together and grow as a team!

Is your dog’s prey drive getting on your last nerve?

Do you want to change that and transform the predatory chasing from working against to working with your dog?

Are you looking for enjoyable walks and lasting relief for your everyday life together?

Then our online workshop “Oh Deer!”

starting on June 17th, 2024 is just the right thing for you!

 Two dog trainers who specialize in Predation Substitute Training dedicate a whole month to prey drive dogs and their humans. And you can join us today!

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

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!

On June 15th, we open the gates of our secret VIP-Facebook group. You are welcome to introduce yourself and your dog and get to know the other participants.

If you are a VIP, you can post questions and videos here. The workbook will also go online with the first small preliminary exercises, so that you have plenty of time to prepare for the start of the training.

From June 17th, there will be four live sessions of around 90 minutes each Monday at 7 p.m. CET (Central European Time – which is 6 p.m. in the UK and 1 p.m. in Washington D.C. in the USA – there will be a recording in case you can’t make it.)

These live sessions are for both, our Regular & VIP Attendees.

During our live sessions you will get input and exercise instructions from Simone and Sonja. Demo teams will be instructed live. In this way you can observe the implementation step by step from the beginning. You can also ask questions during our zoom-calls.

If you are a VIP and would like to film your training throughout the week, you can send us these clips to receive feedback and individual tips. (VIP only!)

 At our last appointment on July 8th, we are going to evaluate how the course has worked for you and your dog so far and how you can continue in the future.

The Facebook group for our VIPS will of course remain open for another month, so that you can also exchange ideas with the other teams afterwards. Perhaps you will find suitable training buddies for you and your dog?

The online sessions are recorded and remain accessible to you in the course area for one more month, too. So you can rewatch again at any time and adapt the training pace to you and your dog.
