Training Helper Certification Program for Schutzhund/IPO in NJ
Schutzhund Helper Certification in New Jersey
A training helper is a consummate actor and communicator. Able to mimic not only animal movement but also to emit emotion. Flexibility in exaggerating expression is the language a great helper uses to balance a dogs genetic predisposition to this work. As with any type of dog training, k-9 understanding is relative to timing and association. Timing is crucial, the window of opportunity may only be half a second. To exploit such opportunities a helper needs to be instinctive and be able to make the correct decisions within these windows of opportunity. A training helpers responsibility is to help the dog, to instill the correct perception and success in how the dog is to interact with the helper.
A good training helper is able to cultivate a dogs genetic working qualities and attributes by maintaining balance. This balance is important in trial. A judge at a Schutzhund/IPO trial assess a dogs willingness to work, trainability, courage, stability along with relationship to the handler as it interacts confidently with the helper. A dog needs to be trained by professionals to achieve this level of socialization. This balance is based on genetics as well as proper training.

Anybody can put on a sleeve or a bite suit and work dogs. But being a training helper is more than just giving bites. A TRAINING HELPER IS AN EDUCATOR. What facilitates learning for a dog is based on the knowledge a the trainer has. No matter how great a dog may be his success and understanding are limited to the trainers experience and ability. John Soares has put together a course for those wishing to learn this art. Drawing from his Schutzhund/IPO, French Ring, and personal protection experience John Soares presents a complete program.
The famous saying is “There are always people ready to take a bite. But rarely someone who knows how to.”
THIS COURSE IS NOT ABOUT MAKING DOGS MEAN OR ANGRY.
This course is about educating why and how to properly mold and guide genetic tendencies into a safe, controlled and enjoyable outlet. WE DO NOT TEACH DOGS TO BITE.
