CEU's PPAB 1
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.

This presentation will consider the benefits of teaching your dog using the principles of errorless learning. By setting up the classroom environment to limit our dogs' choices, we can explain more easily what we are asking of them rather than letting them guess. This reduces learner frustration, increases the success rate and leaves your dog begging for more!
The first part of the presentation considers the difference between errorless learning and trial and error learning. It then looks at how to apply the principles to clicker training when free shaping and teaching more complex behaviors. Finally, some applications for behavior modification are considered and a puppy errorless learning case study is discussed.
