Reward and Location Specific Markers

Designed to equip you with the tools and techniques needed to establish clearer communication


About the course

Are you ready to take your dog training to the next level? Discover the transformative potential of Reward Specific Markers (RSMs) and Location Specific Markers (LSMs) in our comprehensive online course.

The “Reward Specific Marker and Location Specific Marker” course, created by renowned trainers Kamal Fernandez and Di Martin, offers a detailed and innovative approach to dog training that enhances the communication between dogs and handlers. This online course focuses on the principles and applications of Reward Specific Markers (RSM) and Location Specific Markers (LSM), two powerful tools that can significantly improve training efficiency and effectiveness.

Reward Specific Markers (RSM) help dogs understand not just that they have performed a correct behaviour, but also which type of reward they will receive. This clarity allows dogs to learn behaviours more quickly and with greater precision. Location Specific Markers (LSM), on the other hand, inform the dog about where they can find their reward, which encourages more accurate and enthusiastic responses by making the reward itself part of the learning process.


Kamal Fernandez Food for Focus


Throughout the course, Kamal Fernandez and Di Martin explain how to implement these markers in various training scenarios, from basic obedience to complex behavioural chains in competitive environments. The curriculum includes comprehensive video lessons where both trainers demonstrate the practical application of RSM and LSM techniques with different dogs.

This course is ideal for anyone from casual pet owners to professional trainers looking to refine their training approach and build a more nuanced communication system with their dogs. By integrating Reward Specific and Location Specific Markers into their training regimen, handlers can achieve faster learning rates and more reliable behaviours across a wide range of activities and dog sports.
