If you travel regularly with your dog, you know how stressful dealing with unexpected medical issues can be. Whether it’s an upset stomach, a bee sting, or your pup comes up limping, it’s best to be prepared for anything!

This webinar will discuss how to handle common veterinary problems you might encounter when you’re away from the comforts of home, including the following topics:

  • What needs immediate vet care vs. what’s safe to watch and wait
  • Emergency first aid procedures
  • Veterinary travel kit essentials 
  • How to find an emergency clinic if you need one

Even though we’d rather not need this knowledge, it’s a reality of life that things happen! Make sure you have a plan in place to help your dog, if an unexpected problem arises.

Julie Symons - Handling the Handler-Focused Nosework Dog

See a video trailer here:

Date: Thursday, June 27, 2019 

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

Is your dog more focused on you during a search? Too focused on your food or toy or frequently looks to you for help? These issues often stem from lack of clarity and inconsistent mechanics.

Many dogs also have a strong reinforcement history for being handler focused for the many sports we train and participate in. Add the nerves and novelty of a trial, and what you have in training will be amplified while trialing. 

This webinar will explore techniques that will help your teammate turn the focus back to the search! Since dogs are masters at reading our social skills, we have to be aware of what cues we may inadvertently be giving. Topics on handling, mechanics and building independence will be covered, along with how to intervene if needed to get your dog back on task!

Handling dogs in many sports is a specialty of Julies! She is an AKC Scent Work judge and successful at cross training dogs in all sports, having earned an OTCH, multiple MACHs, breed Championships, and Tracking titles and of course many scent detection titles including Master titles in AKC and Elite in NACSW.

Join us on Thursday July 4, 2019 at 5 pm PT for an hour long live webinar discussion of phobias, focusing on noise phobias in particular. The summer holidays can be the absolute WORST time of year for many dogs and their families. We are going to be chatting about phobias in general, what happens to the body physically when startle responses are triggered, and what can be done to help such as management, classical conditioning, and medications & supplements.

We are very pleased to have Dr. Jen Summerfield join us to address the use of medications and supplements, however, you may want to have a conversation about options with your own vet now rather than waiting!

If you know you already have an issue of noise sensitivity with your dog, Amy is running a class to help you prepare for the booms of summer called “Sound Advice: Conquering Noise Sensitivity.” It starts June 1st, so enroll soon if you want to learn helpful strategies before the big day!

We’re looking forward to hanging out with you in the Science Cafe on the 4th!

Kathy Sdao - But My Dog's Not Food Motivated

Date: Thursday, July 11, 2019 
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

When a client says this during our initial consultation, my response is “He’s not food-motivated yet.” Eating is an operant behavior. We can often increase its probability and intensity and lessen its latency through structured training procedures. Developing fluent eating might seem laughable if you have a ravenous Rottweiler or always-hungry hound, And yet, situations requiring skilled intervention abound: a senior dog whose appetite is fading; a wary dog who has learned to distrust treats; a pampered dog fussy about meals. While various medical conditions may contribute to the creation of a finicky eater, so can unwise behavioral practices. We’ll review several common mistakes and provide alternatives.

Denise Fenzi - The Fenzi Method: Cutting Corners to Loose Leash Walking (REPEAT WEBINAR)

See video trailer here:

 

Date: Thursday, July 18, 2019 
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Is your dog is a chronic leash puller? If leash walking is a misery then this webinar is for you! The Fenzi “cutting corners” method can work even for dogs where other approaches have failed. It requires no food, no highly controlled environments, and allows for reasonably inexperienced handlers. This method is equally suited to a young puppy on dog directed socialization outings as it is for strong adult dogs with years of practice pulling on walks. And the best part? It works fast and without compulsive techniques by reducing frustration in both the puller and the pullee! 

If you are tired of being dragged around or a trainer who simply wants more options for helping your clients, then join Denise and hear what she has to say about an entirely new approach!
