Denise Fenzi - The Fenzi Method: Cutting Corners for Loose Leash Walking (REPEAT)

Date: Thursday, May 23, 2019 
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Note:  this webinar is a repeat presentation.

Is your dog is a chronic leash puller? If leash walking is a misery then this webinar is for you! The Fenzi “cutting corners” method can work even for dogs where other approaches have failed. It requires no food, no highly controlled environments, and allows for reasonably inexperienced handlers. This method is equally suited to a young puppy on dog directed socialization outings as it is for strong adult dogs with years of practice pulling on walks. And the best part? It works fast and without compulsive techniques by reducing frustration in both the puller and the pullee! 

If you are tired of being dragged around or a trainer who simply wants more options for helping your clients, then join Denise and hear what she has to say about an entirely new approach!

Nancy Tucker - Separation Anxiety: A Crash Course

Date: Thursday, May 30, 2019 
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

This webinar will look at the management and treatment of a common problem that plagues many dog owners. When a dog struggles with the fear of being home alone, every member of the family suffers.

In the interest of time, we won’t be exploring the causes of separation anxiety or fear of isolation. Instead, we’ll dive straight into the details of what needs to happen in order to resolve the issue.

A fast-paced, no-nonsense “crash course” style webinar for owners looking for answers, trainers considering offering services to help their clients, or vets and vet techs wanting to help answer their clients’ questions.

Deb Jones, PhD - Arousal and the Goldilocks Principle

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

Is your dog too high? Too low? Just right? The term arousal is quite a buzz word in dog training circles lately.

We often use the term as a general description of a dog’s level of energy and excitement. Too much arousal typically means a dog is behaving in a frantic and agitated manner. Too little arousal means that a dog seems unresponsive or disinterested. Most trainers easily recognize that either extreme is problematic for learning. Beyond learning however, arousal is a fairly complicated concept with lots of implications for a dog’s day to day emotional and physical comfort.

This webinar will explore the general concept as well as highlight the behaviors we observe. We will also discuss the idea of the Goldilocks Principle (too little, too much, just right) and consider how to help our dogs find that 'just right' level of arousal, with an emphasis on training and showing.

Chrissi Schranz - Working Through Real-Life Recall Challenges

Date: Thursday, June 13, 2019 
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

OF COURSE your dog comes when you call! Every time. Unless there's other dogs to play with, that is. Or, well, critters to chase. A lake to swim or dead moles to roll in. Or ...

Advanced recall challenges are as complex as the dogs who face them. Rather than providing you with a recipe for one particular kind of challenge, this webinar will give you the tools to analyze your particular recall challenge, define a realistic training goal for your dog, make a step-by-step plan, and follow through - all while having fun with your dog, and celebrating milestones along the way.

Michele Pouliot - Training Backwards!

Date: Thursday, June 13, 2019 
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Many dog sport enthusiasts have used "training backwards" to put technical chains together for specific sports. The formal retrieve is an example of training a behavior chain backwards with the final goal being the entire retrieve exercise performed upon a single cue. The tool of training in reverse order can be applied whenever putting several behaviors together, with better results than "training forward".
Maybe you have a few individual behaviors trained that you intend to chain together in a sequence. Easy, right? Everyone wants a behavior chain to be performed with enthusiasm and reliability. It can be a challenge to connect several behaviors into a sequence with the outcome of reliable performance without rewards. 

Joining three to five behaviors into a performance chain is a common goal for many trainers. Imagine creating a behavior chain of 30 to 80 behaviors! The sport of Canine Musical Freestyle requires developing routines which are basically very long behavior chains. The more advanced the Freestyle division, the longer the performance chain with be.
In 2007, Michele first learned about applying back-chaining for putting sequences together, but she did not use it extensively. Over the past 10 years, Michele rediscovered the power in this tool, expanded her use of it, and experienced impressive results. In addition to improved performance reliability with back-chained behavior sequences, she has also experienced its effect on duration performance without primary reinforcerment.

In this Webinar, Michele will share her step-by-step process of building very long behavior sequences (60+ behaviors) via back-chaining. The presentation will use video examples of chains being built as well as the outcomes of those chains in actual performance. You do not need to take part in canine freestyle to appreciate the task of building performance chains of more than 50 behavior cues in succession.

Come and learn about “training backwards!”
