What is a Method K9 seminar?

At Method K9, we specialize in behavioral rehabilitation of dogs of all ages and breeds. Our traveling seminars are 2-day events designed to bring Stephanie and her team to an area near you. These events cover a core curriculum, including but not limited to: dog-handler relationship, drives, classical and operant conditioning, obedience, and proper use of training equipment. These events also allow us to create a catered training plan for the dogs in attendance and their behavioral issues such as: reactivity, anxiety, fear, aggression, and resource guarding.

What type of seat should I purchase?

Working Seats ($1050)—these seats allow for 2 handlers and one dog to attend. Stephanie and her staff will work with you and your dog throughout the weekend on the issues you are struggling with. You will also have the opportunity for a one-hour meeting before the start of each seminar day to meet with Stephanie, ask questions, introduce your dog, and set your dog up for success before the training for the day begins.

Observation Seats ($450)—these seats allow for one observer without a dog. Observers will have the opportunity to ask questions, observe Stephanie and her staff work the dogs, and follow the group for all exercises. These seats allow observers the opportunity to see how Stephanie works with multiple different dogs, rather than just the dog in front of them.

How does it work?

The seminars will consist of two 8-hour training days (9am to 5pm) with 1 hour for lunch (these events are not catered.) Working seats will have an additional hour in the morning to work with Stephanie (8am to 9am). There will be a rotation of theory and hands-on training. Until the dogs have time to acclimate, they will be left in their vehicles and taken out often in small groups to ensure safety and one-on-one attention. Some dogs can be explosive in the beginning, and we want to give them the best opportunity to adapt to training in a group. This can take some dogs a matter of minutes and others might need hours.The second handler is included in the working seat to tend to the dog in the car if need be during the rotations. Certificates will be given upon completion.

What do I need to do to attend?

Working Seats: ($1050)

  • Fill out a contact form on our website
  • Schedule an interview call and pay subsequent invoice upon approval.
  • Submit vaccine records (we require rabies, distemper/parvo, and Bordetella) and a negative fecal parasite test at least 30 days prior to the event.
  • An evaluation update in the form of a word document describing the issues you are struggling with your dog. Please submit this 30 days prior so Stephanie and her staff can study it prior to the event.
  • Muzzle condition your dog. All dogs must be muzzle conditioned to Method K9’s standards (they need to be able to walk and eat through the muzzle) prior to the event. While we may not ask you to use your muzzle, if we do recommend it for safety, we do not want the dog’s first experience with the muzzle to be in a new or stressful environment. We will supply detailed tutorials to help you accomplish this.

Observation Seats: ($450)
