Saturday, October 6, 2012 – Helping Fearful Dogs Many dog owners, shelter/rescue workers, trainers, and other canine professionals find anxiety, fears, and phobias to be among the most challenging behaviors to treat. This information-packed workshop combines lecture, photographs, and extensive video footage to explore the art of working with fearful dogs, with some overlap into fear-based aggression. Topics include: • Causes and prevention • How fear manifests • Recognized and lesser-known stress signals • How to work with fearful dogs in the home • Suggestions for group classes • A Firm Foundation program on which dogs can build confidence • Skills owners should know • Skills to teach dogs • What training equipment is (and is not!) appropriate Interactive exercises include participation in solving a fear-related case history. You will also learn how specific complementary therapies and products can make your treatment plans even more successful. Whether you are a professional or non-professional, you will leave with a better understanding of shy, anxious, and fearful dogs, and plenty of new techniques and ideas you can try out immediately. Separation anxiety is a challenging problem for dogs, owners, and sometimes even for trainers. It may not be life-threatening, but it can certainly be lifestyle-threatening. In extreme cases, separation anxiety can even cost a dog his home. Get the best and latest cutting edge advice from the woman who literally wrote the book on the subject! Dog-dog play may seem a lighter topic, but it is crucial to understand the subtleties of play in order to prevent aggressive incidents and to keep dogs healthy both physically and psychologically. Both segments of this full-day seminar are packed full of invaluable information that will be applicable whether you are an owner, trainer, rescue/shelter worker, or other canine professional or enthusiast.
