This week we talk to Alexandra Kurland about the topic of Balance in training. I asked Alex to talk about this because the word Balance tends to have a particular usage in dog training circles, and that’s not at all what Alex means when she says the word balance.

Of course, Alex isn’t a dog trainer. She’s a phenomenally skilled horse trainer, who is responsible for introducing clicker training concepts to the horse world back in the 1990s with her first book Clicker Training for Your Horse.

Even though she works primarily with horses (and sometimes goats) there is a LOT we can learn from her approach to training that is completely applicable to our training with dogs… and of course people, too!
