Petra Ford - Maximizing Match Shows & Run Throughs

Date: Thursday, December 2, 2021
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Whether your friend is acting as a judge and running you through or you’re at a match show, this webinar will show you how to get the most out of the experience. Some people act differently during a run through than they do in the ring which dilutes the value of the run. Other people act as if it’s a trial and don’t know what to do when their dog is distracted or makes mistakes. Doing a formal run through is often not the best use of a match. We can use them to teach our dogs ring entrances and transitions in a fun way. We can use tricks and games to help our dogs push through pieces of exercises they are struggling with. Matches can be a great place to teach your dog how to handle distractions and pressure in a way that builds confidence and resilience. We will talk about creating an experience that helps your dog make a smooth transition from training to the trial environment.

Jake Schneider - Grip Development Without a Decoy (Part 1)

Date: Thursday, December 2, 2021
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Most people think that solid grip development can only be done while working with a decoy/helper but, not everyone has regular access to a decoy/helper. In this webinar, Jake Schneider, CCPDT-KA, Mondioring judge, handler, and decoy, will talk about ways to build your dog's grip and bite drive from home and with things you may already have at your disposal. Jake walks you through how to introduce a deep grip and ways to enforce and build it. Jake's goal for people when they come out of this webinar is to have confidence in themselves that they can work a protection sport dog on their own and help build on the skills between training with a decoy/helper.

Note: This is part 1 of a 2 part webinar. Jake will present the 2nd part the following week (Dec 9 @ 6pm PT).

Jane Ardern - Relaxation versus Anticipation: Understanding and Training Release Cues

Date: Thursday, December 9, 2021
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 cover training different release cues for different situations.

We will be looking at the differences between relaxation and anticipation. Understanding where these are helpful and where they can be counter productive.

The webinar will contain both theory and video on training different release cues.

Owning 7 field bred working spaniels has taught me a lot about helping high drive dogs to relax, switch off and wait patiently when working.

 

At the end of the webinar you will have:

  1. A better understanding of how reinforcement and its timing impacts arousal.
  2. Ways to train different release cues for both settling and waiting in anticipation.
  3. Varying reinforcement to support arousal and learning.

Date: Thursday, December 9, 2021
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Adding on from the first "Grip Development Without a Decoy" webinar, Jake goes into how to add stick or accessory pressure to your grip work. He also talks about how he adds control without losing drive, how he does environment training, and when he likes to add the "out" command to his bite work.

Note: This is part 2 of a 2 part webinar. Jake presented part 1 the previous week (Dec 2 @ 6pm PT).

Denise Fenzi - The Fenzi Method: Cutting Corners to Loose Leash Walking

Date: Thursday, December 16, 2021
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

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!

Denise Fenzi - Denise Fenzi's Circle Method for Basic Reactivity and Over Arousal

Date: Thursday, December 16, 2021
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

This webinar is intended to provide advice, interventions, and skills for individuals working with reactive or overexcited dogs. “The circle method of Loose Leash Walking” will be used to help the behavior and emotional state of reactive and over-aroused dogs by allowing them to adjust to their environment, reconnect with their handlers, and become more emotionally comfortable in the presence of specific triggers. The method can be used regardless of food interest and does not require elaborate set-ups.

The information presented in this webinar will build upon the foundation webinar, "The Fenzi Method: Cutting Corners to Loose Leash Walking" (often called the Circle method of loose leash walking), and will assume prerequisite knowledge of that material. To help individuals who are not familiar with that webinar it is available for purchase as a webinar recording at this time. Please see the description below.

This webinar assumes professional or amateur trainers who can assimilate the information with a preexisting basic working knowledge of dog behavior, reactivity and over-aroused behavior.

Note: Please note this webinar is back by popular demand. Check your webinar library before purchasing.
