Unleashing Your Dog: A Field Guide to Giving Your Canine Companion the Best Life Possible

Unleashing Your Dog: A Field Guide to Giving Your Canine Companion the Best Life Possible

  • This webinar will explore how dogs experience the world through their five senses—smell, sight, hearing, taste, and touch. By stepping into their paws and seeing the world from their point of view, we can understand some of the challenges of being a dog in a human-centered environment.
  • Pet dogs are “captive” in important respects and are expected to sacrifice some of their “dogness”; as their companions, we can let dogs have the freedom to be dogs (and not furry people).
  • Human environments can be under-stimulating for dogs. We’ll talk about practical ways to promote sensory enrichment.
  • Human environments can also be over-stimulating and we’ll explore ways to protect dogs from sensory overload.
  • Armed with an understanding of how dogs perceive the world, we can give them more freedom and more agency—unleashing them both literally and metaphorically.
  • Increased freedom leads to increased happiness for dogs and the people who love them.

Anxiety: The Whole Story

Presented by

Dr Jessica Hekman

Webinar Recording Cost £15.00

(Recording is free for ICB members)

Anxiety: The Whole Story:

  • Genetic influence on behavior is not like an on-off switch – it is more like a chaotic weather system with lots of little pushes
  • There are breed differences in behavior, but how much is genetic?
  • In breeding for the “ideal” personality, we have to make tradeoffs
  • Intelligence may correlate with anxiety.
  • We can breed for tameness and resilience – but currently that’s not our priority
  • Puppies get information from their parents about the environment they should expect to live in (not just from genetics)
  • Mild stress in early life can be positive for developing a resilient adult – but not too much!
  • Anxiety can affect lifespan
  • Anxiety can be affected by chronic pain

Shaping for Fearful dogs

Presented by Nina Bondarenko

Webinar Recording Cost £15.00

(Recording is free for ICB members)

About this webinar

Many people are rescuing dogs from other countries and trying to rehabilitate them into very different life situations and conditions. However, due to possible lack of appropriate early socialisation and handling, they are often highly anxious and/or fearful and struggle with being handled or restrained.·Fearful animals need to accept handling from unfamiliar people, whether that is veterinary professionals, groomers, or members of the extended family
· Dogs can be fearful or anxious or both, but they all need to learn to voluntarily accept or at least tolerate sometimes intrusive handling.

· Shaping behaviours with a fearful dog may preclude the use of clickers or other noise makers as markers.

· Trainers can use Habituation, Desensitisation and Counter-Conditioning Techniques to help a dog transition away from practising avoidance and self defence behaviours and these are usually helpful for most dogs. They can make it possible for a trainer to introduce behaviour shaping and husbandry training

· But what can be done with fearful dogs that seem to be unable to learn to volunteer body parts to be handled or restrained, even though they have been habituated to gentle touch and positive reinforcement? Sometimes the training session alone can trigger avoidance and defensive behaviours. Neural pathways have already been firmly set, and can be difficult to modify.

· Case studies will demonstrate some techniques which may help individual dogs to overcome passive or active self defence behaviours, and modify the neural pathways to improve future learning and cognitive development

About the presenter

Hi my name is Vibeke Francis and I am a Reiki Master Healer & Teacher based in Sandwich, Kent.

I experienced my first healing session in 2010. Afterwards just knew something profound had changed within me but I can’t even today tell you what the change was. However I just knew this was a path I had to follow.

Within two months after that first treatment I had found a Reiki teacher to work with and completed Reiki Level 1 – my journey had begun.

I opened my own clinic in 2011, offering healing to people and animals. In 2016 I became a Reiki teacher and now hold workshops regularly teaching people Reiki.
