Jennifer Arnold and Judy Luther have created a three-day seminar that focuses on the human-dog interaction, drawing from Jennifer's extensive 25-years of experience teaching service dogs, and Judy's 20-years of experience teaching pet dogs and their owners.  

The seminar will not only explain the origins of this unique relationship but will help you design tools that will inevitably aid in your ability to work with dogs on a variety of issues and levels.  Join us for a fresh look at what science has taught us about how dogs perceive our shared world.  

We are extremely excited to offer Bond-Based Choice Teaching to individuals who share our belief in the extraordinary power of the human-dog bond. 

Do not miss this opportunity to be among the first outside the Canine Assistants family to learn this revolutionary approach to teaching dogs and the people who love them. Immerse yourself in the world of dogs at our beautiful eighteen acre farm.

    We will be working with a number of dogs.  During the summer months, temperatures are HOT in Atlanta.  You will want to wear cool clothes that you won’t mind getting a little dirty.  Conversely, winter months can be unpredictable in the Atlanta area, so plan to bring warm clothing.

    In addition, please bring a treat pouch, a notebook to take notes, multiple writing implements, and anything that would make working with the dogs easier for you.  We will have the We Leash for sale, but you might want to bring your favorite leash, as well.  

    We will do a dinner outing with a Canine Assistants dog who is in currently in the education process.  Our dinner outing will be casual.  You may bee too tired to go out at night after a long day at the seminar, so it is unlikely you’ll need anything dressier than jeans.

    The classroom room gets cold at times, so we recommend bringing a light jacket.

    You will be responsible for your own lunches and dinner.  For lunch there are several restaurants in close vicinity of Canine Assistants.  There is also a grocery store close by with a nice salad bar and a Starbucks coffee shop.

    We will furnish coffee, soda, and light snacks during the seminar, but feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks if you want something special.

    Smoking is not permitted on the Canine Assistants property.

    See you soon!
