Does your dog melt like ice cream on a hot day at the first sign of pressure? Does she shut down, quit, or otherwise avoid training despite how much fun you try to make things? Are you worried that you’ll never see the inside of a competition ring as a team, or even a training hall?

Don’t despair! Sensitive dogs can seem tricky to work with, but they offer an incredible opportunity to grow and expand our understanding of working with dogs. In fact, sensitive dogs have become my favourite type of dogs to both live and work with! I have a house full of them.

Join me in this exploration of how to build a strong and confident relationship to bring out the best in your sensitive dog.

Deb Jones, PhD - Zen and the Art of Impulse Control

Date: Thursday, August 25th, 2022
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Most people would agree that we’d like our dogs to have the ability to be zen; to chill out and relax when the situation calls for it. In addition, we’d like them to think before they act. Mindless reactivity can be difficult to live with and manage in our dogs.

In this presentation Dr. Deb Jones is going to discuss her views on zen and the concept of impulse control. She will talk about the common usage of such terms as well as her working definitions, and issues with the terminology and application.

She will talk about the advantages of teaching a dog to be zen and demonstrate specific exercises that can encourage thought before action. In particular, Deb will focus on both the art and the science of zen work. A clear understanding of the major underlying scientific principles will be very helpful to excellent application and execution of the techniques.

Deb will discuss the importance of designated markers, introduce her foundation “bowl” games, and demonstrate the place/drop/toss technique to build fluency. She will talk about developing control around food and toys, and also consider broader generalization issues and applications.

Note: This webinar was originally included as a presentation in the Lemonade Conference, but has not previously run as a standalone webinar.

Stacy Barnett - Creating a Crazy Sourcing Maniac

Date: Thursday, August 25th, 2022
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 USD

Do you want a dog with the DESIRE to DRIVE to Source? Maybe your dog goes halfway and alerts? Maybe your dog gives up without pushing in when the hide is a bit deeper?

Sourcing is all about desire. Yes, we will cover pin-pointing in this webinar but it will go SO much further. True precision is about trajectory to source. This webinar will give you the TOOLS to enhance that trajectory! Without a trajectory, all you have left are guesses from the dog's perspective.

We will cover pinpointing developing push in in this webinar... with a HUGE emphasis on DESIRE and MOTIVATION for source.
