Mariah Hinds - Get Your Cookies Here

Date: Thursday, April 19, 2018 
Time:  6-7pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).  
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Rewards matter! Reward placement matters too. We can use reward placement for heeling to encourage more animation, more drive, build more enthusiasm on the outside of the figure 8 or encourage your dog to remain in heel position instead of forging. 

We can use reward placement to help us with shaping and stays and to increase your dog's speed in responding to cues. We can use reward placement to affect distance behaviors or with building accuracy. 

Join us for this webinar to learn lots of great options for how and where you can reward your dog's behaviors to build the accuracy, fluency, duration, and distance that you are aiming for!

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

Struggling with finding time to train and wanting to make progress on all those skills? Welcome to my world! If you only have a few minutes, we can organize some simple training sessions for these extremely short periods of time. You can train during commercial breaks or while making dinner! These training sessions require very little, to no equipment, and only require you, a willing dog and a handful of treats or some toys. 

For example, you can work on putting a behavior on cue, rehearse a known behavior, use generalization to strengthen a cue or work on YOUR handling skills!  We will cover types of training that make the most sense in these short sessions and how to ensure they are successful and motivating for both members of the team! Perfect for any training activity!

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


Deb Jones - Yes Please: Canine Cooperative Care

Date: Thursday, May 3, 2018
Time:  6-7pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).  
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Does your dog enjoy his grooming sessions?  Does he love going to the vet?  Is he calm and relaxed for physical handling?  Can he tolerate routine procedures without stress or anxiety?  

Throughout their lives our dogs are going to need husbandry work.  Husbandry includes grooming care and veterinary procedures.  Rather than relying on pressure or force, we can be proactive and prepare our dogs for these experiences.  

In this webinar Deb will present her systematic approach to cooperative care training.  This approach is based on a foundation of free choice along with smart reinforcement strategies, classical conditioning, and impulse control work.  These all build a strong basis for specific body work.  We’ll also discuss general body handling, introducing grooming and veterinary tools, and working with specific body parts (eyes, ears, mouth, and feet).

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


Hannah Branigan - The Perfect Sit

Date: Thursday, May 10, 2018
Time:  6-7pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).  
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

It might be hard to believe we could spend an entire webinar talking about sits, but we can! 

The sit is a component of every exercise… every front and finish, halts in heeling, not to mention command discrimination and signals. A fluent, square sit pays off over and over again in a confident, precise, high-scoring performance. But what if your dog wasn’t born with a perfect square sit? Is there any hope? There sure is!

Sit is a position, but it is also an action. In fact, there are many ways for a dog to sit, and many of them aren't quite what you want! In fact, one of the biggest mistakes we often make is focusing on the outcome... the end point of the movement that results in a sitting dog. Instead, we can focus our training efforts on the action the dog takes to assume the sit position. 

In this webinar, we will deconstruct sit, identify which type of sit we want in each exercise, and design an effective, actionable training plan to build the sit we want.

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


Sue Yanoff - Management of Chronic Pain

Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018
Time:  6-7pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).  
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

Many performance dogs, as they get older, develop conditions that cause pain.  Pain that persists for more than weeks to months is called “chronic pain.”  Two of the most common causes of chronic pain in dogs are degenerative joint disease (arthritis) and back pain.  

How do you know if your dog is in pain?  What causes pain?  

In the lecture on Management of Chronic Pain in my Sports Medicine class, I listed over 30 different ways we can treat chronic pain in our dogs.  In this seminar, we will discuss some of these, including old standards and new options.  No dog should have to live with pain.  Find out what your options are for making your dog more comfortable.

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


Debbie Torraca - Keeping Your Seniors Super and In Shape

Date: Thursday, May 24, 2018 
Time:  6-7pm Pacific Time (Click here for time at FDSA (Pacific Time).  
Fee: $19.95 - Registration required PRIOR to scheduled presentation time.

The webinar will focus on methods to keep your senior dog, and that includes dogs over the age of seven, in tip top shape physically.  As with people, there are many things to do to prevent injury.  The goal is living the best quality of life for the longest time possible.  We will review five simple exercises for the super senior, as well as additional ones to maintain your dogs' wonderful life.

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