Virtual Summit Recorded Webinar(One of 25 webinars that were featured in PPG's August Virtual Pet Care Summit) Presented by Louise Stapleton-Frappell
CEUs PPAB, 1 IAABC, (Pending) CCPDT, (Pending)
Play is essential for healthy brain function and reinforcement is an integral part of the ‘game.’ The reinforcement strategies you use will affect the behaviors being carried out and your canine clients’ desire to engage in them. Struggling to get a dog to walk on a loose leash, to go in a crate or to lie on a bed? Not sure how to aid relaxation and help ensure a dog remains happy and calm while you are putting on a harness or while there is thunder overhead? This presentation will provide you with much of the knowledge and skills you need to set you and your clients (both human and canine) up for success. You will learn how to create an atmosphere that is conducive to your canine clients’ well-being. Happy canines mean happy guardians and happy guardians mean recommendations and an increase in your potential client base. There are lots of positive consequences that result from learning about reinforcing the good stuff. Animals are learning all the time and we need to ensure the learning that takes place is appropriately reinforced - we need to reinforce all of the behaviors we would like to see repeated. This presentation will an overview of operant and respondent conditioning in the context of pet care processes, with a particular focus on positive reinforcement. It will delve into the what, when, where, how and why of reinforcement, take a look at different reinforcement (reward) strategies and how any chosen strategy will enhance or impede daily interactions with canine your clients.

Working in the pet care industry involves knowing much more than how to care for a pet. Clients expect you to know about a pet’s health needs, vaccination schedules and nutritional care. They also expect you to have a good knowledge of the pet care tools, equipment, supplies and toys available in today’s marketplace as well as knowledge of basic canine (or feline) communication so that you are able to recognize a pet’s emotional state.
