Predation Substitute Training: A webinar with Simone Müeller

A recording of from July 28, 2022

Conventional training protocols stifle the dog’s natural predatory behaviors through punishing or constantly forcing them to return. These restrictive protocols work against the dog’s nature and against what they want most: to go for a hunt!

Predation Substitute Training (PST) is a motivation-based and need-oriented training program, designed to stop uncontrolled predatory chasing and to provide safe outlets for our dog’s natural drive.

Instead of making discipline the nagging factor that spoils the fun, this training system will help dogs and their guardians to grow as a team and go hunting together!

In this presentation Simone is going to discuss:

  • What is predation?
  • Why do our dogs love to hunt?
  • Why is predatory behaviour so hard to interrupt?
  • How and why does Predation Substitute Training work?
