In 2010, Michele originated a detailed system for using raised platforms to train a variety of behaviors. After 9 years of experiences with hundreds of dogs, she has enhanced her methods of first introducing dogs to raised platforms. Learn how to best establish foundation platform skills with your dog and reap the benefits those skills will provide for many training scenarios.

Deb Jones, PhD - Developing Strong Focus: Beyond Eye Contact & Attention

Date: Thursday, September 12, 2019 
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

People often think that they have trained their dogs to focus, when in reality they have trained their dogs to give eye contact in very specific and limited situations. This is not focus! We want so much more than that in building a strong working relationship with our dogs! Focus should be at the center of everything we do. 

This webinar will address numerous ways to consider and apply the concept of focus in your training and day to day life. It will build on the basic ideas in the Get Focused and Focused Games classes. Some of the topic areas that I will discuss include:

  • Understanding and recognizing the different types of focus (handler, task, internal, external)
  • Starting puppies with focus friendly techniques from the very beginning
  • Recognizing focus opportunities in day to day life
  • Incorporating focus into training sessions
  • Focus in public places and at trials
  • Focus failure & what to do about it

But sometimes you get lost in how to create the dog you want, making sure you lay a good emotional and behavioral foundation that supports their mental health and growth.

Just what building blocks do you need to make sure your dog can be a well-adjusted pet? In this webinar we’ll take a high-level view of challenges like handling environmental overstimulation, navigating social situations to keep them healthy, how to provide structure and predictability they can lean on, and when to set limits. We’ll go over many of the challenges of raising a dog and give you a roadmap to think through preventing problems and meeting their needs.
