Seminar Title: Living With and Training a Fearful Dog
Seminar Date/Time: Saturday, November 5, 9-5:00 pm in Seattle, Washington State
Speaker: Debbie Jacobs, CPDT-KA, CAP2
Fear is a common problem that can be seen in the timid wallflower as well as the barking, lunging dog on the street. Professional dog trainers, shelter workers, foster care givers, veterinary staff and dog owners will not want to miss this opportunity to learn about the most effective and humane ways to help our neediest best friends learn to trust what they currently fear.
The information in this seminar is based on the study and research of animal behavior and how dogs learn. You will learn about the causes of fear based behaviors, how they present themselves in dogs, and what handlers can do to help dogs learn new skills and build confidence. There will be discussion of calming aids, medications and hands on training techniques for working with dogs that are feral, unsocialized, or mildly shy or fearful.
DOGS: We will have dog demos. Participants will not be working their dogs, but if you have a seminar-savvy dog that will be great in this environment, you are allowed to bring him/her. If everybody brings dogs, we will have too many, so please only bring your dog if you have a good reason and your dog can easily handle this type of situation (i.e., not fearful or aggressive).
