The Antecedent Iceberg

Presented by Kim Brophy

FREE ON-DEMAND WEBINAR - watch anytime!

Available from Nov 25th

Like an iceberg there is so much more in Antecedents than what we see on the surface.  In this webinar Kim introduces the concept of LEGS and how we can use LEGS in our thinking of the antecedent, part of the behavioural contingency.

LEGS, stands for L= Learning E=Environment G=Genetics S=Self. Go beyond the observable tip for a complete picture of canine behaviour.

You're a pro. You already know a bit about "how" to teach dogs & people. But sometimes you just can't shake the sense that you're missing some critical pieces of the puzzle— like "why" so many behaviors are happening in the first place.

We have been taught to view dog behavior all wrong – as something it is our job to change or “fix”. Most of us trainers, with our emphasis on “how” to change behavior, are not getting the depth of meaningful resolution for the dogs & families we serve that they so desperately need—because we never actually get to the source of the problems that those symptom behaviors are reflecting.
