Teaching with Acoustical Guidance

Tag Logo 2 Seminar hosted by CLEAR Dog Training - in Brisbane, July 2014

Many dog owners are familiar with the concept of using a marker signal such as a clicker or whistle to make learning more enjoyable and quicker for dogs, dolphins, horses, pigs and parrots.

[Click HERE with sound turned on to see a 20 second video clip of a well-trained chicken!] What is not such common knowledge is that an event marker has for some years been used widely in North America and Europe with people. Instead of calling it 'clicker training for people' teaching with acoustical guidance for humans is known simply as TAGteach.

TAGteach enables all dog owners to become great teachers but it is not restricted to dogs. Sports coaches, ballet, gymnastic and swimming instructors, school teachers, teachers of children with special needs, occupational safety instructors, business people as well as many sought after professional dog trainers are now all benefiting in their respective fields from TAGteach's unique set of elegant and efficient tools for teaching and learning. With this ultimate application of positive reinforcement coaching and teaching time required is halved. Students find that being tagged for doing something right, rather than being nagged for what they are doing wrong, makes learning stress free, much faster and much more fun. Learn it today - use it tomorrow!

TAGteach co-founder together Theresa McKeon came to Brisbane in 2010 to run the first ever primary accreditation seminar for TAGteachers in Australia and is coming here again in July. Those dog owners, some of who were trainers, who attended last time thought it a brilliant experience and learned a great deal. Many of the trainers to this day still think it to be the most valuable training seminar of any type they have ever attended.

TAGteach seminars around the world are strictly limited to 25 people and are soon filled up. These ones in Brisbane, Adelaide and New Zealand in July 2014 are now filling fast. With the Australian dollar likely to continue falling this year against the American dollar, people who wish to attend should not wait for the early bird cut off of June 30th - as the sooner they register the more they will save in terms of the exchange rate.

Registration is again being done via the USA at http://www.tagteach.com/eventsoverseas

After June 30th the standard worldwide TAGteach fee of US$425 will apply. No matter how many great seminars and workshops people have attended, this one would be different for them and attendees will benefit greatly! TAGteach International are so good and so confident of value for money that they offer a 100% money back guarantee, no questions asked. (This offer has, of course, never been taken up!)

Even if you are unable to attend, please help spread the word about TAGteach to family, friends or anybody in your circle of contacts who you think might benefit.

Theresa's itinerary is as follows:

  • Adelaide, Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th July - Preliminary accreditation seminar.
  • Brisbane, Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th July - Preliminary accreditation seminar.
