Is your dog brilliant at home but shuts down at a trial, tournament or show? Do they bark at people? Are they afraid of the teeter? Do they seem generally stressed? For a competition dog, dealing with behavior challenges is a must. Our goal is to make your dog enthusiastic about performance so they can enjoy themselves. Rather than teaching you the behaviors that are required for success in the ring of any specific sport, this seminar will address how to assess and increase your dog’s comfort level, confidence, and connection to you in novel and challenging environ- ments. This can support your in-ring performance and increase the joy you and your dog share every day! Dr. Cook will emphasize the importance of emotions in train- ing, and how to make sure your dog feels great. She will explain the hidden signs of stress and how to use therapeutic “social play,” to both gauge the dog’s emotional state and help them relax and learn new responses to what stresses them. In this seminar you will learn:  How to assess preparedness to work  How to identify and mitigate low level stress  About threshold management  About relaxed play, and its important role in the rehabilitation of stress and anxi- ety  Personal play, food, or toy: which should you use and when?
