A Sound Beginning Program is honored to be able to bring the experts in behavior to you for an evening you won’t want to miss! DECODING THE FEARFUL DOG: Fear Aggression 4pm FEAR FREE: CHANGE IS POSSIBLE….It Begins with You. Presented by Steve Dale, CABC No one gets into the field of rescue because they want to cause harm to an animal. But sometimes for the sake of “getting it done” we are causing the very animals we save to end up dealing with fear. We can do better. • Shelters • Foster homes • Vets • Groomers • Trainers Find out what YOU can do to be part of a better future for all the animals. 5:15pm FEAR BASED AGGRESSION Presented by John J Ciribassi, DVM, Dipl. ACVB Aggression is the most common behavior problem presented to veterinary behaviorists. In many, if not most, of these cases a definite fear component seems to be the driving force behind the aggressive displays. This presentation is meant to clarify terms, differentiate possible diagnoses of aggression, and offer thoughts on treatment of fear-associated aggression. 7:15pm FORCE-FREE TRAINING Presented by Steve Frost KPA CTP, SBA, CPBT-KA Using punishment to train is sometimes assumed to be the only way to get control over an animal. But punishment causes anxiety and creates more fear, increasing the probability of aggression. Learn gentle handling techniques and humane training methods that are effective, reduce fear, and decrease the risk of fear-related biting.
