Dog Days Dog Training


What is CCC?

CCC's website

Please read this entire page before deciding if this is the right class for you and your dog.

  • Is your dog's behavior great at home, but he's a punk in the park?
  • Do you wish your dog would listen, even in distracting situations?
  • Spent a lot on training classes, but still have an out of control dog?

    The Connection, Cooperation & Control (CCCTM) training system can help you create the kind of connection and cooperation you want with your dog. Firmly founded on the principles of Suzanne Clothier's Relationship Centered TrainingTM, CCC helps you create mutual connection with your dog, while you also develop cheerful cooperation.

    Dog training generally focuses on teaching dogs specific behaviors, but forgets to include the relationship, communication and connection. Without those key ingredients, you end up with a dog who knows "stuff" like SIT, DOWN, STAY but still drags you here and there, tuning you out and sometimes just disconnecting. Sound familiar?

    Distraction is a common problem for pet owners and professional dog trainers. The CCC training system bridges the gap between training at home and in public places to keep the dog engaged and cooperative while the rest of the world happens around him.

    The Connection, Cooperation & ControlTM course focuses on the ingredients that create a strong relationship, like handler body language and intent, teaching dogs how to ask permission before dashing off or dragging you around. Best of all, this training system offers the opportunity to train the way real life happens - without a bait bag or treats in the handler's pocket! CCC uses food reward puzzles to offer the dog a richer experience, enhancing motivation, an eagerness to continue training, and making it easier to teach behavior and cooperation. Studies have shown that dogs wag their tails more when solving a problem and are more eager to repeat the experience than when they are simply given a reward for compliance.

    Whether your dog's just a Friendly Freddy, a Distracted Daisy, or even a Reactive Roger, you can have the joyful, cooperative and connected relationship that you want with your dog. Fans report immediate shifts in connection and cooperation after just one lesson! Great for puppies and adult dogs. Ideal for those adolescent dogs who may have mailed their brains to another planet.
