You’ve heard about Pavlov and slobbering dogs, but why should you care? Because it can make all the difference to success or failure in your training! Classical conditioning is happening all the time whether we consider it or not. We’ll explore the basic concepts of classical conditioning. In particular, we will focus on how emotions are learned and connected to behaviors. Understanding this process can be your new superpower as a trainer.

Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Do you have a puppy or ‘new to you’ dog that you are hoping to train for competition?  Do you want to simplify future engagement training?  This webinar is all about your early decision making that will make formal engagement training easier when the time comes.   We will consider our “life” training choices and identify the trade-offs in areas like manners, impulse control, socialization, play, shaping training, etc.  We  will consider how we might want to play, raise and train our dogs, all with an eye to enhancing future engagement while avoiding common engagement training challenges. Within training, we will consider how and where we do our shaping, general training, etc, so that our dogs accept our offers of personal interaction and think to offer looking to us when they are unsure.  And finally, this webinar will take a look at issues of temperament and pre-engagement interaction; how does temperament create different risk points for different types of dogs, and how might that knowledge influence possible choices for your specific situation?

Note:  A recorded version will be made available in your webinar library 24-48 hours after the presentation.


Julie Flanery - Smart Dogs, Clever Trainers: Shape the Environment, Shape the Dog

Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Struggle with shaping? Join Julie to learn how to use structured shaping and environmental management to convey criteria quickly, raise your rate of reward and isolate behavior.  Geared for handlers that feel they just can’t seem to get the hang of free shaping, or dogs that frustrate easily or tend to throw behaviors thoughtlessly. This webinar will break it all down and offer ideas for using props and structuring your training environment for greater understanding, stronger behaviors and more effective and efficient training sessions.

Note:  A recorded version will be made available in your webinar library 24-48 hours after the presentation.
