Susan Garrett’s entire dog training foundation is built on one philosophy: You can achieve great and effective training by simply playing with your dog. It is her mission to teach the world that training can be fun, for both people and animals! Dog training shouldn’t be a chore. It should be a time that you enjoy with your dogs; and time that they enjoy spending with you!
It is this philosophy that Susan Garrett practices with her own dogs at home, and it is this philosophy that has helped her win 2 World Championships, 15 US Championships, and 10 Canadian Championships in the sport of dog agility. Susan’s success in the agility ring can be attributed to the special bond she shares with her dogs. She understands their needs, she analyzes the reasons behind their actions, and then she caters her training to support those observations. She determines what the dog values, and then she uses games to show the dog that he can get exactly what he loves most, just by playing with YOU and making the right choices!
