Deb Jones, PhD - Fully Focused: A Unified Field Theory

Date: Thursday, July 18th, 2024
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

As a dog trainer, why should you care about focus? It’s simple really. Focus is the basis for everything else! That’s a pretty bold statement, but after 30+ years as a trainer I stand by it. It’s the hill I’m willing to die on.

Do you want your dog to pay attention to you rather than everything else in the world? You need to teach improved trainer focus. Focus isn’t free, you have to work hard for it. It’s worth every bit of effort though. The issue typically isn’t that trainers don’t want to train focus, but that they don’t really understand how to do so effectively.

In this webinar Deb is going to present her unified theory of focus based on 25 years of working in this area. We’ve been thinking about and trying to manipulate focus in a much too narrow manner. Our understanding of it is too simple and limited. Instead we need to expand our understanding, which opens up many avenues for effective and efficient focus training.

Come join Deb for an in depth updated discussion on this topic, along with the demonstration of a variety of easy to apply focus games and exercises.

Webinar outline:

  • Thinking about focus in a new improved way
  • What have we been missing?
  • Where do these ideas come from?
  • What the heck is a unified field theory?
  • How is it all connected?
  • Types of focus & focus modalities
  • How can we use what we know?
  • Focus exercises & games

Kelly Daniel - Fitness On the Go: Natural Form Canine Fitness

Date: Thursday, July 18th, 2024
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Canine fitness typically happens inside, using specialized or custom made equipment, but it doesn't have too! Fitness skills can be performed anywhere with a little bit of creativity. This webinar will look at using features found on your walks or surrounding natural environment to do a variety of fitness exercises with your canine teammate.

This is a fantastic idea, not only because natural terrain offers challenges for your dog's body, and because fitting in fitness exercises on your walks may help with time management, but also because for many people and dogs being out in nature is decompressing and relaxing.

This webinar will present a range of fitness exercises, how to select ‘equipment’ from the environment around you, and utilize it to perform these exercises in great form. There will be a variety of exercises, allowing you to create a full workout for your dog. We will also discuss how to progress the difficulty of exercises.

Remember that if your dog has had health, or orthopedic issues you should discuss the suitability of this, and other canine fitness training with your dog’s main healthcare professional. If you are otherwise unsure if this is suitable for your dog please contact Kelly.

In this webinar, we will explore games and activities that help build off-leash reliability and connection with your 4-legged friend and to build a strong skill set that you can carry into any situation.

Bronagh Daly - Control Unleashed for the Ringside: Agility Ringside Skills

Date: Thursday, August 1st, 2024
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Does your dog get amped up while waiting their turn? Stressed? Frustrated? Do they have trouble focusing before entering the ring or are they focused on something else like the dog running before them or the hustle and bustle around them?

Ringside skills can be paramount for your team's overall agility performance and they're very often overlooked. They may not be quite as fun to work on as handling or obstacle training, but they're just as important! Waiting itself can be really challenging and even make no sense to a lot of dogs. So waiting their turn at a trial, class, or seminar can be extremely challenging with the added feelings-inducing commotion around them.

This webinar will focus on the skills you need to help make the excitement and chaos of the waiting area feel more predicable and approachable. Utilizing exercises from Control Unleashed, you will leave this webinar with an actionable plan help your team walk from the waiting area to the gate of the ring with a level head.
