About the presenter

Dr Isla Fishburn owns Kachina Canine and Kachina Wellness. She has a BSc in Zoology and an MBiolSci and PhD in Conservation Biology. Isla is passionate about bringing science and indigenous wisdom together to promote health and wellness for all of life, including our dogs. Isla explores how everything is occurring and operating at a cellular and molecular level and how we can understand this when it comes to providing a life that promotes wellness for a dog. Isla is a practicing shaman for modern day life and focuses on healing energy systems and personal growth for the collective. She has spent several years interacting with large groups of captive wolves, wolf hybrids, wolf dogs and other domestic dogs where she learned to apply her knowledge about conservation, wellness and canine biology to educate dog guardians, professionals and researchers about canine wellness, health and conservation. She has taken this further and now also focuses on human wellness and health of all of life, where her motto is, “making health span match life span.”

As a canine wellness advocate, Isla focuses on many aspects of a canine to improve and support longevity, happiness, balance and harmony. Her running theme is always ecosystem conservation, from the individual level up and she uses a range of teachings, techniques, therapies and methods to support a dog’s ecosystem. Isla has a deep interest in plant medicine and energy healing to improve and support the energy state of an ecosystem – whether that is for your dog or for you!

Isla has recently launched an online course that takes you through all things related to canine wellness and the concept of energy gateways that can either create harmony in a dog’s ecosystem or create disturbances and distress. In her talk, Isla will introduce you to the topic of canine wellness as well as other aspects that can influence a dog’s emotional, physical, physiological and spiritual states and what we need to consider to provide a life for a dog where there health span matches their life span.

Three ‘Rs’ Webinar; helping dogs reset, re balance and release

Three ‘Rs’ Webinar; helping dogs reset, rebalance and release

Presented by Sarah Fisher

Sunday 10th November 2019 19:00 – 20:00 (GMT)

Cost £15  (£10 for ICB Members)

In this webinar Sarah looks at helping dogs reset, rebalance and release using free work.

Animal Centred Education (ACE) is an integrated approach to animal education and management. It incorporates some of the techniques that were developed at Tilley Farm and those inspired by other professionals working in the world of animal education, wellbeing and welfare. The main focus of this webinar will be on observations, Free Work and gentle handling to help dogs reset, rebalance and release. Free Work has been inspired by a bright and enthusiastic young bull breed named Henry; it is a simple, structured method of educating and supporting dogs of all ages providing a safe and rewarding foundation on which further learning and handling can be built. Many dogs struggle when in novel situations and many cannot tolerate contact (even from familiar people) when aroused, worried, or in new or exciting environments. Free Work has provided an invaluable stepping stone towards ground work exercises on a line or lead and gentle body contact, including TTouch, for dogs that are sensitive to touch. Placement of treats on varying heights enables you to help the dog organise his own body more efficiently and work at a pace to suit him, before other learning exercises are introduced. Free Work is now being successfully used by shelter staff, trainers and behaviourists, TTouch Practitioners, groomers, therapists, and canine guardians to support the animals in their care. This webinar will provide you with safe and effective tools to pass on to your clients, and enhance your existing skills.
