POP UP TALK: What is Predation Substitute Training?

You love hiking with your dog, and at times, having them off leash. But then all of a sudden……..”SQUIRREL”! Does this sound familiar?

During this Pop Up Talk, which takes place in our Zoom Room, Traci Bisson, owner and founder of Golden Dog Adventure Co., talks with Jake Belmont, certified, professional dog trainer and co-owner of Red Pointy Dog Training, about the benefits of Predation Substitute Training (PST)™.

PST is a motivation-based and need-oriented training program, designed to stop uncontrolled predatory chasing and to provide safe outlets for your dog’s natural drive.

Prey drive is hardwired into the DNA of all dogs. From Great Danes to Chihuahuas, the desire to chase is as natural as breathing. PST is a fun and unique way of teaching your dog the skills they need to be able to listen around wildlife. Jake will discuss how to use replacement games, space creating cues, patterns, and how to encourage calm behavior.

The tips shared in this online presentation will help you to teach your dog not to chase wildlife all while making their walks more enriching and exciting!

Participants will learn:

  • What the Predatory Chain is and why it is important;
  • Predatory replacement games – what they are and how to introduce to your dog;
  • How to create calm with your dog while in nature;
  • Let’s Go! to create distance while out hiking/walking.

After the live presentation, put these skills into practice at our Official Club Adventure: Putting Predation Substitute into Practice on Saturday, June 24th in Concord, NH.

Jake has been working with dogs for his entire professional career with 7 years of training experience. He started working in dog daycares and was quickly fascinated by dog communication and learning.

From there, Jake started his own dog walking business until he joined forces with Red Pointy Dog Training in 2018.

Jake is a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a Certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer with a special interest in making trails and walks fun and safe for all dogs and their humans.
