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

What happens in your dog's brain and body when something scares her? How long can you expect her stress response to last? 

In this webinar, Jessica Hekman, DVM, PhD, will talk about the stress response in dogs. She will explain the original evolutionary purpose of the stress response; what the hormones involved in it (like cortisol) do in the body; the difference between acute and chronic stress and the different effects the have on dogs' health; and what we know about how long it takes the body to clear those hormones. 

You will definitely learn some cool stuff about how the brain works and what that means for your dog's ability to focus through the stress of something like a trial environment!

Most of us know the overt signs of more extreme stress, but if you want to help your dog not get that stressed then you need to intervene early, and that means knowing it’s much more subtle signs! 

In this webinar we’ll go over signs of stress from the most overt to the most subtle, and consider strategies for lessening stress when it comes up from the environment and from your training choices.

Date: Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019 
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to minimize the chance of injuries in your performance dog. We cannot prevent injuries from occurring, but there are many things we can do to that may minimize the chance your dog will suffer an injury, not just during training and competition, but in everyday life.

I will discuss 13 factors that may help reduce injuries, or allow you to identify them earlier. Most of them are things you can do on your own, without professional help. In fact, only one of the 13 recommendations involve a sports medicine health professional. So join us to confirm what you may already know, learn some new things, and participate in a lively discussion about this important topic.
