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

This webinar focuses on warmups as well as cooldowns. Warmups and cooldowns are two elements in an overall strategy of preventing injuries in your active canine. This webinar will address the benefits of warmups and cooldowns, how and when you should do them, and the types of activities that you need to include them for. The physiology of warmups and cooldowns will also be covered. We will also look at the difference between active (dynamic) stretching and passive stretching and where they fit. Warmups and cooldowns during canine sports competition will also be included. 

Join me in this webinar to understand why you'll want to embrace these activities. Did you know that warming up increases athletic performance?

Denise Fenzi -  The Fenzi Method: Cutting Corners to Loose Leash Walking

Date: Thursday, Feb. 28, 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!

Sarah Stremming -  Happy Crating!

Date: Thursday, Mar. 7, 2019 
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Contrary to what a lot of us have been told, crating is far from a natural behavior for dogs. Seeing it as a vital behavior our dogs must know in order to live in our world is the cultural shift we need. This webinar will cover crate introductions, calm and quiet crating behaviors, crating while "stuff" is happening, and troubleshooting for when stuff has gone wrong. It is not a "formula" but a multi-layered approach I have used to produce truly happy crating in my dogs, and my clients' dogs.

Nancy Tucker -  Fence Fight!

Date: Thursday, Mar. 14, 2019 
Time: 3pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Does your dog go bananas when he spots another dog, person, or wildlife on the other side of the fence? Does the thought of letting your dog out in the yard stress you out because you know drama will ensue? This webinar will teach you how to address fence-running and fence-fighting. Learn management and training methods designed to resolve this problem.

Ideal for dog owners living with fence-fighters, as well as trainers who want to help clients address a fence-fighting issue.

Cooperative neighbours are an asset, but not mandatory. ;)

This webinar will not address the wide and varied topic of "barrier frustration," which may include things like indoor barriers, exercise pens, or crates. Rather, it is specifically about outdoor fence patrolling, running, and fighting.

Jessica Hekman, DVM, PhD. - Genetic Testing: How It Works and When to Trust It

Date: Thursday, Mar. 14, 2019 
Time: 6pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time). 
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Welcome to the genomics era! Suddenly panels of genetic tests for dogs are relatively affordable - less than the price of a gold class at FDSA, anyways! These tests claim to tell you what your dog's breed ancestry is (for those of us with mystery mixes) and to give you a heads-up about possible health issues. How much can we trust the results? Are some tests or companies more reliable than others? In this webinar, Jessica will explain how these tests work. She will build on that explanation to explain the differences between various products, to help you come to your own conclusions about whether you should purchase one, and if so, which test panel is right for you. Jessica has a PhD in genomics and is currently working in a canine genetics laboratory, and has a knack for making complex subjects easy to understand. Come find out about genetic tests - the future is now!
