Maryna Ozuna: This is an active, participatory session geared to the specific needs of dog obedience instructors. A series of hands on exercises will teach you: how to “see” – really see – the quality of movement in your dog using the Arcs of Movement™ system, how to use a simple 8-step protocol to check the integrity of the basic functional movement zones in your dog’s body, and how to use the state of the art Canine Kinaesthetics™ 40 Point Protocol to relieve areas of tightness or discomfort in your dog. The exercises will also help you to be able to have a more informed discussion with your veterinarian or other members of your dog’s training and health team in the event that your dog does experience clinical issues. Barbara Davenport-Our experience at PACKLEADER has allowed us to develop techniques that have proven reliable and repeatable for diverse canine applications. Unique passive detection techniques developed by Barbara Davenport for training narcotic dogs have now been adapted to conservation detection. Beth Rivard-Prison Pet Partnership gives inmates the opportunity to learn valuable pet care vocational skills to use in finding employment when they resume their lives outside of prison. In addition to training, boarding, and grooming dogs, inmates also gain clerical skills by working in our office. To ensure that they receive ample experience in the pet care industry, inmate employees are required to spend a minimum of two years with us. PPP takes in rescue dogs and purpose-bred puppies from other service dog organizations to train and place as service and therapy dogs. Our service dogs are able to respond to the needs of individuals who experience seizures, those who live with various illnesses such as Multiple Sclerosis, and those who have multiple disabilities by assisting them in their daily activities and giving them increased independence.
