Petra Ford - Speaking Dog in Competition Training

Date: Thursday, October 22, 2020
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Why did THIS session go well and THAT session fall apart? Why did my dog wander off and refuse to engage, yet, yesterday, training was wonderful? How can I predict what will work for my dog, and stop bad sessions before they do permanent damage to our training relationship? WHY did my dog do THAT in the ring?

In this webinar, Petra will take a hard look at the WHY's of success and failure and help you learn to read your dog in a way and at a level that will benefit both you in all of your training interaction across a variety of sports. Being able to read your dog - their happy and unhappy behavior, and to see the work from their point of view is the ticket to consistently awesome training sessions and to avoiding the "dig a hole" tendency that humans find themselves gravitating towards. This webinar may well cause you to rethink everything about how you train and set up your sessions.

Sue Yanoff, DVM - First Aid for Dogs

Date: Thursday, October 29, 2020
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

First aid is defined as help given to a sick or injured dog until full medical treatment is available. For dog owners, first aid may be needed at home, while traveling, at a sporting event, or while hiking or doing other recreational activities. Would you know what to do if your dog was injured or became acutely ill, and veterinary care was far away?

This webinar will discuss common (and some not so common) injuries and illnesses for which you can provide first aid until you can get your dog to a veterinarian. Conditions we will discuss include heat stress, allergic reactions, bleeding, fractures, sprains and strains, lacerations, snake bites, bee stings, diarrhea, vomiting, and trouble breathing.

The webinar will apply mainly to pet and performance dogs, but will briefly discuss injuries and illnesses seen in working dogs.

I will discuss how to know if something is a true emergency, and if you should go to a vet or can handle it at home. I will also talk a little about CPR (should you learn it?) and the Heimlich maneuver (can you do it in dogs?).

I will list items that I think should be in an emergency kit, but will not spend a lot of time on this.

If you want to be a little more prepared for emergencies, this webinar will give you lots of useful information.

Shade Whitesel - Push to Play: Introducing "offered" behaviors to your training language with your dog

Date: Thursday, November 5, 2020
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Want speedy, confident obedience skills out of your dog? Want focus? Want your verbal/physical cue to be an “opportunity” not a “have to”? (and with that “opportunity” comes FAST, FAST and more FAST) Want your dog to PUSH you to train/play?

How’s that down on recall? Levitation elbows? Slow, with lots of steps after the cue? Or lots of anticipation of the down?

Or, you’ve done such a great job getting your dog addicted to shaping, that the dog offers all the things ALL THE TIME, no cue needed, anytime. It’s adorable. But how to get something on cue when you don’t want all those dancing footsies?

And what about the barking? Someone told you that barking raised arousal, right? And arousal equals speed. And now your dog won’t shut up and you need to get them ring ready (in 2021, right?!) and they are doing the bark and heel. Or the bark and down…..

I can help! I really want to show you how to make your dog like those difficult skills, whether prompted or shaped, how to offer them fast and confidently, and then, how to put them on cue.

Encouraging offered behaviors adds to your training language, adds to your tool box of communication skills with your dog. It also allows you to “fix” behaviors that are deteriorating, due to trialing or sequencing. I’ll teach you clear protocols so that both you and your dog know when to try all the things and when to listen, easy clear steps on how to get offered behavior in the first place, and how to work through all the distractions, handler and environment, in the shaping/offered phase, rather than after the behavior skill is named.

Heather Lawson - TEAM: What Exactly is TEAM & How to Be A TEAM Player

Date: Thursday, November 5, 2020
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

What exactly is TEAM? TEAM stands for Training Excellence Assessment Modules and is a VIRTUAL titling program focused on building solid foundation basics you can apply in any dog sport.

With TEAM there’s no longer any reason to hold back with training for distractions, distance work or jumping while teaching your dog to heel! TEAM allows you to dive right in & build behaviours that will keep your dog interested in playing the training game each step of the way. Each LEVEL adds complexity in 4 main areas; the difficulty of skills & assessment, challenges from distractions, multiple testing locations and quantity of reinforcement. When completed and put together TEAM prepares & allows you to compete in any sport or venue you might enjoy. PLUS you have the opportunity of taking those skills and earning TEAM Titles along the way. Excellent chains of behaviour are the product of excellent foundation skills, regardless of the sport and that is what TEAM gives you!
