BRAIN
SHAPING

When we look at a dog’s brain, we see that it is made up of concepts, and all the concepts make up their personality as a whole.
How skilled your dog is at any particular concept influences the choices they make in daily life, and all the concepts combined 
make up your dog’s unique personality.

Games provide incredible learning opportunities for dogs without realizing they are training. It is one of the best ways to create a long-term permanent behavior change in your dog.

With Two Dads’ games-based CONCEPT training you will also learn to make up games that address your dog's individual problems.
