Dianna Cooper, also a Delta Accredited Canine Good Citizen instructor, is the Director of Training for Australian Support Dogs in Sydney an organisation that trains dogs to assist people with physical disabilities. Teaching dogs to open and close doors, put rubbish in bins, open a refrigerator, turn on light switches, take socks and slippers off their owner's feet and numerous other tasks takes 'training' to a level that most of us can only aspire to. She showed a Saturday morning class the initial steps in training assistance dogs by way of clicker training and targeting.
