Join Eileen Anderson for this thought provoking webinar on Canine cognitive dysfunction.
Canine cognitive dysfunction is a disease that is extremely under-diagnosed, with many dog owners learning what is wrong with their dog only when the dog may not have much time left. But many dogs with CCD can still live enriched lives, and some can profit from medical treatments and environmental changes. There is no magic cure, but early recognition of the disease will help many dogs live happier lives and help dog owners feel less alone.
Eileen will share her own experience with her dog with CCD, who had a good life for two years after diagnosis. She’ll also cover general tips for caring for dogs with CCD, and offer resources for those who are considering euthanasia. This always difficult decision can be even more difficult for people when the dog involved is mentally deteriorating but physically healthy.

Join Niki for this webinar on how best to approach behavior cases. This webinar does not just cover the science of functional assessments but also looks at the approach and flow of behavior case management. The webinar reviews proactive and concise case management and the APES system to working with clients.
This webinar will focus on the "Approach".
There is a strong case to be made for using functional assessments in your business. Interventions based on functional assessments are typically more effective. By identifying why, a problem behavior is occurring we can then develop an intervention that will directly address the function of the behavior. Interventions based on functional assessments are typically much more effective than interventions that are not (Cooper, Heron, & Heward, 2007).
