CCC™

The Connection, Cooperation & Control (CCC)™ six week course is founded on the principles of Suzanne Clothier’s Relationship Centered Training™. CCC™ helps you create mutual connection with your dog, while you also develop cheerful cooperation.

These courses offer the opportunity to train the way real life happens – without a bait bag or treats in the handler’s pocket!
