I received a rare opportunity to shadow Ralf Weber for 2+ months this summer. Ralf’s shadow program offers a vast amount of knowledge, but he specializes in modification of canine fearful behavior. As a student of dog behavior, I was able to observe the changes in the canine clients he worked with over the time I was there and see their confidence build. The knowledge I received and applied to my own dogs during my program has made a noticeable difference at home, primarily in regards to their confidence.
Ralf uses a solid, well-researched combination of science and modern dog training techniques to help the dogs and owners achieve their goals. The program itself is well rounded and in-depth. I had access to select daytime sessions, both at the facility and at the clients’ homes. On specific evenings, Ralf conducts social club nights during which we worked on fear and other undesirable behaviors in the presence of other dogs.
Ralf made me feel comfortable and relaxed during the sessions. He offered information on growing a business, website design, branding, and even a little sword fighting and magic tricks on the side! I was able to observe his day to day training routine with clients, worked with “board and trains”, and worked with my own dogs under his supervision. He was able to explain his methods clearly and answered any questions I had.
I appreciate my time with Ralf and will use the skills I learned from him on a daily basis. I recommend his program without reservation.Sara W, https://www.happydogtraining.info/podcast/podcast-shadow-student-sara-white-episode-8/
