Petra Ford - Swift & Accurate Halts in Heeling

Date: Thursday, June 4, 2020
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time. 

There are multiple halts with heeling in every obedience class. This webinar will teach you how to get halts that are consistently straight and fast. First, we will create a motor pattern for fast, tucked up sits. We will discuss how to cue your dog that the halt is coming and make sure your dog understands and reads the cue. Your dog needs to be in perfect position for a straight halt. We will introduce some games that reinforce position. Finally, we will look at how to teach your dog to square up their front feet on every halt. When taught properly, getting great halts is a fun game for your dog!

Nicole Wiebusch - Broken Connection: Why Your Dog Loses Focus

Date: Thursday, June 4, 2020
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time. 

Does your dog disconnect from you during training? Would you like some ideas on how to fix and prevent disconnection? Having a training plan and systematically working your way through increasing criteria, distractions, and generalization can go a long way toward reducing disconnection.

During this webinar we will define disconnection and discuss common reasons that dogs disconnect from their handlers. We’ll talk about how to figure out why dogs disconnect, and we’ll cover ways to fix it and prevent further disconnection in the future. You will be shown video examples of several different scenarios in which the dog disconnected and we’ll talk through what likely happened. You will come away with a better understanding of why dogs disconnect and what you can do about it.

Note: this webinar will not cover extremely fearful dogs. That in itself is a complicated subject and there are other classes at FDSA that are better equipped for helping your fearful dog.

Julie Symons - Nosework Challenge Series: Introducing Advanced Concepts Early in Training

Date: Thursday, June 11, 2020
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time. 

It is very common in any sport to train advanced skills before you ever compete. Baby go-outs in Obedience or back side jumps in Agility. The same is true for Nosework! When the sport of Nosework first rolled out we were careful not to train skills required at the highest levels like blank areas, multiple hides, and lower degree inaccessible hides. We wanted our dogs to be solid on novice skills. With time we discovered that waiting too long to teach higher level skills made those concepts more difficult to learn. We dramatically changed the rules to our dogs mid-stream.

Although we can NOT rush foundations, once our dog has confidence, motivation and HIGH value for odor we can absolutely introduce them to advanced concepts before we have trialed. We can teach our dogs that Nosework is not just about finding hides or searching objects but clearing blank areas and searching areas void of “things”. By removing parameters early on, our dogs won’t always think there HAS to be a hide or it will ONLY be on an object. Dogs are capable of so much! We will create stronger understanding and resilience because of this approach! This webinar will show you how to introduce some of the advanced concepts early in your training career.

Note: This is part of a multi-webinar series, however each webinar is designed to be helpful whether viewed independently or as part of the larger series.
