Friday Evening Lecture
Humane Hierarchy in Performance Problem Solving
There is an order of operations in behaviour problem solving that should be followed by sport trainers, but rarely is. Your dog breaks his start line: do you stop using a start line stay, go back to basics and reinforce stays, or use a punishment contingency? All of these might be acceptable responses, so long as they are accessed in the correct order. Learn about that order and be empowered to solve any problem with skill.
Worked Up! Addressing Arousal-related Issues in Sport Dogs *no working spots left! Auditing spots still available
Saturday & Sunday
9:00am-5:00pm (lunch break from 12:30-1:30)
This workshop is all about dogs that are over-stressed, over-aroused, over-adrenalized, and just plain over the top. In this workshop learn what optimal arousal looks like, what causes over-arousal, and what you can do to keep your easily over-stimulated competition dog in his best state of mind. Help your dog give his best performance in the ring by helping him be in a healthy state of arousal at trials. Part lecture, part hands-on, this workshop addresses everything that comes with problems of arousal: handler-biting, broken start lines and contacts, lack of focus, knocked bars, and more. Workers and auditors will learn the immediately applicable skills, and workers will get to work with Sarah one-on one to cater these skills to their specific dogs.
Sarah has more than a decade of experience in training and behaviour modification and specializes in problem solving for performance dogs. Sarah's talents in behaviour modification have earned her a spot as one of the presenters at this year's Fenzi Dog sport camp. She will also be teaching a program at the online Fenzi Academy.
