Shade Whitesel - Connection: How to Build Loose Leash Walking in Sport and Real Life (Repeat)

Date: Thursday, January 13, 2022
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Wouldn’t it be awesome to let your dog out of the crate at the sports venue, have them orientate directly to you with nary a glance around at the busy surroundings and walk perfectly with you to the ring entrance?

Wouldn’t it be awesome to snap the leash onto your dog, exit the front door and go for a nice neighborhood walk, saying hi to the neighbors, passing dogs, cats and bicycles, stopping for your dog to sniff every once in a while?

Instead, your arm and shoulder hurts from the constant pulling, the constant yanking, you keep a death grip on the leash 6 inches from the dog’s collar on the way to the ring, you are embarrassed to exit the driveway, let alone go for a walk around the neighborhood, and you are looking sideways at the prong collars in the pet store aisle every time you go in to buy dog food.

Want some strategies? Want some joint relief? Want the dog to act like they are following you, rather than you following them?

I’m not a total miracle worker, but join me for this webinar and I’ll give you some skills to work on that will make walking much more enjoyable, whether that is from Pt A to B in the competition venue or outside in the real world.

Sara Brueske - Fast and Furious Whistle Recalls (Repeat)

Date: Thursday, January 20, 2022
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Recalls are one of the most important behaviors that you can teach your dog, the benefits in the real world are invaluable. However, often we are combating the distractions around us when we are training this behavior. One of the best ways to train a recall by treating it like a performance behavior in which we value speed, enthusiasm and fun as well as a habitual response to the recall cue. In this class, we will specifically be focusing on a whistle as our recall cue as this is the best noise to use at a distance and to cut through other distracting noises.

We will be discussing various recall games to play, how to know when your recall is ready to level up and how to increase the speed of your dog's response. Join us to learn how to create an immediate response with your recall and to teach your dog to love their recall!

Deb Jones, PhD - But He Does it Perfectly at Home!: Building Focus in Challenging Locations

Date: Thursday, January 20, 2022
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

If I had $1 for every time I’ve heard “but he does it perfectly at home” I’d be living the high life on a private island. As you continue on your dog training journey you will become aware, sometimes painfully aware, that what your dog KNOWS and what your dog DOES can be two very different things. So how can you make those two things match? This webinar will help show you the way forward!

Teaching behaviors and skills is only one part of the training equation. Generalizing those behaviors and skills to a variety of challenging locations is key to success, and typically much harder than initial training. Deb will discuss how to establish, build and encourage focus in new locations, and then how to then add trained behaviors to your focus sessions. If you start with focus first you will have much more success.

Topics we will consider in this webinar include choosing training locations wisely, trainer/dog responsibility, habit & context, setting realistic expectations, setting up for success, and making good training decisions in the moment.

Deb will provide you with some basic focus exercises that you can then use as the foundation on which you can build your training sessions. Starting with focus and then building strong behavior chains is the key to success out in the real world.
