PAST EVENT - THE FIFTH ELEMENT - A K9 NOSE WORK® SEMINAR
with K9 Nose Work® co-founder Jill Marie O'Brien


Some of the greatest challenges faced by handlers are to identify, in real time, the effects the human is having on the search environment and the dog through body movement, mental pressure, and over- or under-involvement in the search itself. Jill Marie will integrate hands-on searches, video review, and group discussion to help handlers develop their skills as the "team managers."

PAST EVENT - BEHAVIOR ADJUSTMENT TRAINING
for Fearful, Reactive & Aggressive Dogs

with Grisha Stewart CPDT-KA, KPACTP


Fighting is expensive for dogs. Instead of jumping directly into fighting, most dogs give distance-increasing signals, from subtle to overt. But many dogs have also learned to give up on the subtle signals and leap straight to showing big aggressive displays, fighting, or fleeing in panic.

When dealing with aggression, fear, or frustration, Behavior Adjustment Training, or BAT, builds social skills, confidence around the trigger, and trust in the handler. While food or other rewards are used with BAT in some cases, the main focus of BAT is on using environmental rewards and giving the dog a chance to control his own comfort level through peaceful means.
