Deb Jones, PhD - Stop Sniffing!

Date: Thursday, March 4, 2021
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Sniffing is good! Just ask your dog! It only becomes an issue when you really want your dog to do something else instead. So why is your dog sniffing when you want to train or when you are at a trial? That’s an excellent question! And as with so much in dog training the answer is not always clear. Sometimes sniffing is just exploring interesting smells. Other times however, sniffing is a displacement activity to avoid perceived pressure and uncertainty. Because sniffing is self-soothing it’s a good way for dogs to calm themselves and engage in something low key and enjoyable. Sniffing definitely has its place in your dog’s life. The focus of this webinar will be to address undesired sniffing in training and trial contexts. Why is it happening and what can we do about it? Join Deb to learn a variety of approaches and techniques to handle this very common issue.

Julie Daniels - Senior Dogs Staying Young: Quality of Life

Date: Thursday, March 4, 2021
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

We all want to continue the best of life with our dogs for as long as possible. What is best for them will change as time passes. Routine is comforting. Change creates new neural pathways that protect the brain. The best strategy is to meet new requirements with optimism and confidence. You can pave the way now for a healthy old age for your dog. This is about how to keep what works and change what could be better as your dog matures and ages. Continued learning and activity is important for all of us, but we don't want our senior dogs to struggle. This webinar will help you prepare to be the expert on your own dogs as they age, and will also help you decide when to seek outside help.

Héléne Lawler - Living with Intact Dogs (REPEAT)

Date: Thursday, March 11, 2021
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Are you contemplating keeping your dog intact for longer, or perhaps even permanently? But you’re worried about behavior problems? Management challenges? How to avoid unplanned pregnancies?

As a full-time trainer and occasional breeder of working and performance dogs, I have been living with intact dogs for over 15 years. Currently, I share my life with 16 of them!

Living with intact dogs has become second nature to me. In fact, I believe that keeping my dogs intact is one important factor to having them all get along so well!

No, it’s not all rainbows and daisies. Yes, it requires forethought, management, and understanding.

That said, living with intact dogs isn’t any more difficult or complicated than living with altered dogs. It simply requires a different skill set: an understanding of the intact dog, a mindset shift, and how to implement key best practices.

In this webinar, I’m going to teach you the fundamentals of how to enjoy life with your intact dog so you never have to worry about whether you’ve made the right decision again.

We will begin by exploring how intact dogs differ from neutered dogs. Next, we’ll go over the key challenges you may encounter, and I’ll share my tips, tricks, and critical management strategies you’ll need to make living with intact dogs a synch.

Please note that, while I will briefly review the key health benefits and concerns associated with keeping dogs intact, the focus of this webinar will be on behavior and lifestyle.

You’ve just gotten a puppy or adopted a new adult dog and you’ve made so many plans about how it’s going to go! You want to try all the activities, be able to take them everywhere, and to have everyone in the family get along seamlessly! But sometimes you get lost in how to create the dog you want, making sure you lay a good emotional and behavioral foundation that supports their mental health and growth.

Just what building blocks do you need to make sure your dog can be a well-adjusted pet? In this webinar we’ll take a high-level view of challenges like handling environmental overstimulation, navigating social situations to keep them healthy, how to provide structure and predictability they can lean on, and when to set limits. We’ll go over many of the challenges of raising a dog and give you a roadmap to think through preventing problems and meeting their needs.

What does a mentally healthy dog need? Come talk about it with me!

Stacy Barnett - Building Blowing Odor Skills to Improve Sourcing

Date: Thursday, March 18, 2021
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

One of the biggest pieces of the Sourcing Skills puzzle is the ability to react to odor and drive in to source. As the dog moves up the levels, the challenges get more intense. Not only does the dog need to learn how to drive into source, but the dog also needs to be able to problem solve quickly. In this webinar, we will cover exercises that you can easily set up in order to help your dog understand how to work odor efficiently. Building these skills will help your dog to become faster and more accurate at finding the hide.

Date: Thursday, March 18, 2021
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Do you love your sporting dog but struggle with mouthiness, excess energy, and hyper-social and/or over-arousal issues? When you understand WHY these problems occur, you can do a better job preventing or decreasing the struggles that your dog might have.

Sporting breeds make fabulous performance companions, but they are not without challenges! These dogs have been bred for very specific purposes for a really long time, and with that comes instinctive behaviors that we both love and hate! Some of these characterizes and behaviors are great for both companionship and performance, but others are a bit less ideal in our human world.

Join me to explore what makes sporting dogs so great and what challenges they may present. Find out how, by knowing their natural tendencies, we can reduce or curb some of their less-ideal characteristics while we take advantage of what they naturally offer. This group encompasses many beloved breeds in the performance world. Get ready to bring out the best and be successful with your sporting dog!
