Canine Bowen Therapy Webinar

Presented By Pennie Clayton

Webinar Recording Cost  £15.00

Canine Bowen therapy is a gentle non manipulative therapy. It is a hands on therapy it differs from many physical therapies as there are breaks or pauses in treatment which allow the body to respond to the work it is given and also allow the brain to process the information.

Canine Bowen may help keep a dog supple, and can be of use in helping to relieve muscle spasms stiffness and pain. Any dog of any age or with problem can receive Bowen and it is also used as part of palliative care.

Dogs are free to choose how much Bowen they receive and are free to leave the treatment area at any time. Canine Bowen therapists are trained to observe how dogs are responding during work and are adept at assessing when to finish a session. Observation during treatment is crucial as one of the first things that are taught during Bowen training is the principal of “less is more”.

Before work commences dogs are observed visually before any contact with the dogs’ body, this is an essential part of canine Bowen. The less suspicious a dog is of the therapist the better, this puts the session firmly in the dogs control.

This webinar intends to show how a canine Bowen session is conducted and what a therapist’s intentions are and how dogs might react. It will also look at our approach to treating specific canine health problems.

Basic principles of the communication person centered approach according to C.R.Rogers.

Basic principles of the communication person centered approach according to C.R.Rogers.

Presented by Dr Simona Seu and Stefania Uccheddu

How to motivate our clients is often something we will all come across at some point in our professions

The webinar will explain how to apply the person-centered approach with your Clients. The person centered approach was developed by C.R. Rogers for communication with clients according to three basic principles that reflect the attitude of the “therapist” to the client.
The purpose of C.R. Roger’s approach is to increase a person’s feelings of self-worth, reduce the level of incongruence between the ideal and actual self, and help a person become more of a fully functioning person.
Person centered therapy was developed in the 1940’s by Carl Rogers, it was different from previous methods as it was a more empathic approach that motivates the client.

But My Dog Isn’t Food Motivated

But My Dog Isn’t Food Motivated

Presented By Kathy Sdao

When clients say this in an initial interview, my response is “not yet.” Eating is an operant behavior. Therefore, we can increase its probability and intensity and lower its latency through structured training procedures. While this might seem laughable if you have a ravenous Rottweiler or always-hungry hound, situations abound which require skilled intervention: a senior dog whose appetite is fading; a wary dog who has learned to distrust treats; a little dog who is fussy about meals; or a dog whose health is threatened by conditioned anorexia. While various medical conditions (requiring veterinary expertise) may create finicky eaters, so can unwise behavioral practices. We’ll review several common mistakes and provide alternatives.

Essential oils: a new way to deal with behavioral problems?

presented by
Dr Stefania Uccheddu.
Sunday 28th October 2018, 19:00 – 20:00 hours (GMT)

  • Aromatherapy is the use of concentrated essential oils to treat various diseases.
  • Some of these essential oils are currently used in human medicine in the management of chronic pain, depression, anxiety, some cognitive disorders, insomnia, and stress related disorders.
  • Research shows the effectiveness of using essential oils such as lavender and chamomile in improving animal welfare.
  • As well as other types of environmental and social enrichment, the use of the appropriate olfactory stimulation with essential oils seems a promising aid in preventing or reducing stress and in behavioural management in dogs. It may become part of the routine management for veterinarians.
  • During the webinar, we are going to explore the use of essential oils in behavioural medicine with a scientific but also practical point of view .

presented by Dr Patrizia Piotti

Age-related cognitive decline in family dogs

Dogs begin to show behavioural and cognitive signs linked to ageing starting from the age of six. This is a progressive process, so much so that up one third of 11-12 years-old dogs show and 70% of dogs aged 15-16 show signs that are similar to the human Alzheimer disease. In order to study dogs’ ageing process, researchers have been focused, so far, mostly on laboratory dogs. These, however, differ from the dogs living with humans (“family dogs”) in terms of experiences, genetics and sometimes their behaviour. I will describe the latest findings regarding the assessment of cognitive and behavioural changes in aged family dogs, considerations regarding their welfare and quality of life and potential interventions aiming at slowing down the cognitive and behavioural decline of aged family dogs.
