Date: Thursday, July 26, 2018
Time:  6-7pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).  
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

How the dog responds to life is highly individual, blending temperament with personality and history — and of course, the environment and others around him. Understanding the dog within the context of this complex blend of information helps handlers work to modify and adapt their handling and goals for enhanced relationships and better performance.

Whatever your training goals or sport, the Elemental QuestionsTM help you truly “see the dog” and provide the detailed information about each animal as he is. This is where truly humane training is grounded: in detailed knowledge about the individual dog.

Suzanne’s simple but powerful Elemental Questions are:

  •  Hello? Looks at the dog’s social interactions
  •  Who are you? Asks about how the dog perceives and responds to his world
  •  How is this for you? Asks about the immediate situation and the dog’s mental, physical & emotional balance
  •  Can you…? Looks at the dog’s physical abilities & limitations
  •  May I…? Seeks ways to gain the dog’s cooperation and permission
  •  Can we…? Balancing the dog/handler team’s abilities and limitations against goals

For each dog, the answers to these questions provide a wealth of information to those interested in helping that dog be all that he can be.

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

Date: Thursday, Aug 2, 2018 
Time:  6-7pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).  
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

One of the biggest desires of any animal is to make choices freely and to have control over what happens to them. Since that’s not something we can give a dog at all times, what are some of the key places where giving them choice can make a big difference to them? Come learn new ways of thinking about crate training, socialization to the world and to people (puppies and adults!), fear prevention, and importantly, how to soften the blow when you can’t give them the choices they want! Let’s be the best emotional caretakers we can be!

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

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

Want to build your distance control and connection with your dog while participating in a great new sport? Or maybe you’ve always been fascinated by herding, but don’t have sheep. Check out Treibball! 

Sometimes called “ball herding” or “urban herding,” treibball is a cross between billiards and soccer that you play with your dog. It’s perfect for a dog who is retired from other sports, dogs new to the sports world, or reactive dogs (since most venues restrict access to the competition field). 

We’ll cover the basic rules of the game and the foundation skills to get you started. Come learn about this relatively new dog sport!
