Cognitive Skills Workshop
‘Get those Cogs turning with Cognitive Skills’!
What is Cognitive Thinking?
Cognitive development is the ability to think and understand. It is the part of the brain responsible for problem solving, processing information, conceptual learning, perceptual skills, memory, creativity and brain development using cognitive psychology.
This isn't just any old ‘Match and Sample’ workshop. We’ll be concentrating on Visual, Audio, Scent and Sensual skills, to really stretch you and your dogs ability to work as a team and problem solve. There are many games that can be played using cognitive skills, using memory skills and much more!
These workshops are for dogs over 8 months of age (due to brain development). Some targeting skills would be useful but not essential and each handler must be familiar with marking behaviour whether by clicker or verbally.
We will be working with targeting via feet or nose, indication signals for when the dog has found what we’re looking for and indicates it to the handler, discrimination skills (visual, sensual, scent and audio) as in ‘it’s not that one, or that one but THIS one’!
These are very impressive skills for your dog to have and can help in many other ways, such as behaviour and general well being.

At Kay9 Services, we have been teaching cognitive skills for a number of years.
This is another very successful workshops and generally sells out within hours! Just as our popular Platforms Workshop, this workshop will be going ‘on the road’ and hosted throughout the UK.
Teach Your dog to be a brilliant problem solver!
