Erin Lynes - Off-Leash Skills for Puppies

Date: Thursday, May 26th, 2022
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Having a puppy off leash can be a nerve-wracking affair! But being able to have your little one safely off leash provides a lot of freedom, helps prevent over-extending their leash skills, and allows for the best type of natural exercise for a growing body.

But isn't this a super advanced skill? Isn't this too hard for puppies?

No and no!

Puppies have some genetic pre-programming that means off-leash training is actually easier when you start earlier! Baby puppies have stronger social motivations, stronger instincts to follow, and lack competing reinforcement history from the environment - all factors that help make off leash walks and recalls much easier to introduce sooner than later, and change with time and experience to make off-leash training harder to start from scratch.

This webinar will cover several strategies to help you build your puppy's off leash skills from the ground up, will help your recognize developmental milestones that will mean changing your strategy as your puppy ages, and help you discover the benefits of a shared trust that comes when both you and your puppy are comfortable in off-leash situations. The skills covered in this webinar include recall, attention, and boundaries as they relate to being off leash. We'll also discuss the types of environments that you'll want to seek out to best teach these skills and the types of challenges that you'll want to be aware of and plan for, depending on your puppy's genetics! Finally, we'll discuss under what conditions a particular puppy may not be ready for off-leash training.

Eileen Anderson - Coping with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction: How to Provide the Best Care for Our Dogs and Ourselves

Date: Thursday, June 9th, 2022
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Canine cognitive dysfunction is a tough disease. It sneaks up on our dogs in the guise of normal aging—then we realize that something may be really wrong. As symptoms progress, we can feel that we are losing our dogs before they ever pass away.

But many dogs with CCD can still live enriched lives. Some can profit from medical treatment. There is no cure, but early recognition of the disease can give owners better tools to help their dogs and themselves.

Eileen will discuss the disease, its prevalence, and currently known risk factors. She’ll draw from her own experience and many years in the CCD community to provide information on changing the dog’s environment—and the owner’s mindset—to better cope with the disease.

Finally, she will provide resources on euthanasia and grief. These topics loom large for any guardian of a dog with CCD. This always painful decision can be even more difficult for people when the dog involved is mentally deteriorating but physically healthy.

Advanced canine cognitive dysfunction is rarely short of devastating. But there are things we can do to feel less alone in our situation and to help our dogs on this journey.
