Deb Jones, PhD - Cooperative Care in the Covid Era: Managing Socially Distanced Veterinary Visits

Date: Thursday, April 15, 2021
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

This past year has brought numerous new challenges to all of our lives. One unexpected and yet significant change for pet owners is the experience of veterinary visits. Even before Covid, vet visits could be quite stressful for some dogs and their owners. With Covid restrictions at many veterinary clinics humans are not allowed to enter with their pets. This means that dogs are on their own with the clinic staff. If you have a dog who already has “stranger danger” issues or who becomes uncomfortable with veterinary procedures then as an owner you are likely very concerned.

So what can you do to make things easier for you, your dog, and the veterinarian and staff? There are actually quite a few things that can help! In this webinar we’ll talk about proactive preparation for a vet visit without you there. We will consider the best ways to help your dog and how you can work with the veterinary professionals to make it all easier for everyone involved.

Things to consider include clear communication with the veterinary team, the possible use of pre-visit pharmaceuticals, practicing ‘hand offs’ with others, preparing your dog for routine handling, dry runs to the vet clinic, and how to avoid freaking out when you hand over your dog, among other things. There are ways to make this experience easier for everyone, and we will focus on integrating and applying those solutions.

Even without the challenge of Covid the information in this webinar will help you make all vet visits more comfortable for you and your dog.

Megan Foster - Balancing Act: Obstacle vs. Handler Focus in Agility

Date: Thursday, April 15, 2021
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

What is obstacle focus? What is handler focus? How much do we need? What do we do if one is too high? What do we do if one is too low?

We need our dogs to love the obstacles and to want to take them, but we also need to maintain enough handler focus to be able to guide them to the correct places. What does it look like when the scales aren’t balanced? It can look like a dog that is “blowing you off” to take off-courses, or it can look like a dog that stops short of taking the obstacles as you start to move away to the next part of the course.
When the scales are balanced, we see a dog that is quickly moving from one obstacle to the next, committing to what is on their line, easily adjusting their stride when asked to turn; almost as if the dog is reading the mind of the handler.

Agility has a lot of different elements, all happening at a fast pace. What you want your dog to focus on and what your dog naturally wants to focus on may or may not be in alignment. This webinar will unpack the questions above and provide training strategies to help teams develop and maintain the optimal obstacle/handler focus balance, including training habits, handling habits, and things to look for in our dogs’ behavior to know when things are getting out of balance.

This webinar is suitable for all levels of agility enthusiasts, instructors, and competitors.

Chrissi Schranz - Training Real Life Recalls (REPEAT)

Date: Thursday, April 29, 2021
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

A reliable recall may be the most important behavior your dog will ever learn: it comes in handy on a daily basis (call your dog to you rather than chase him down in the yard or dog park!), it greatly increases your dog's freedom (off leash hiking, anyone?), and it can even safe her life (imagine a squirrel on the other side of a busy road)! 

In this webinar, we will look at ...

  • how to systematically build a great recall from scratch
  • common recall pitfalls to avoid
  • how to turn your dog's favorite distractions into rewards,
  • and what to do if your dog's recall is broken.

We'll also talk about realistic expectations: is there such a thing as a 100% reliable recall? How much recall reliability can you expect from the dog in front of you, and how do you know whether you can trust her off leash?

Please Note: This is a repeat webinar. Please check your webinar library before purchasing.
