In this webinar you will learn what is a feral and roaming dog? Yvette will speak about how all feral dogs are domesticated because species are domesticated, not individuals.
The webinar will look at what does a feral or roaming dog behave like? What does it look like? How extreme are the variations.
There is a difference between appearance and behaviour. Just because a dog looks like a lab, it doesn't mean it behaves like one. As trainers, we work with behaviour, not so much with appearance.
Working as an animal behaviour consultant for over a decade, Yvette is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant and member of the PPG. She is known for her work as a pet writer, having written for Sun Media (The Londoner), and then as pet writer for the Toronto Star. She is a regular at local schools teaching young children about "asking permission before petting".
The majority of her experience comes from over a decade working with hundreds of feral and roaming dogs. She has shared her life with three such dogs, all of which became model dog ambassadors in the community. Their abilities ranged from helping children in schools, decoy work and therapy programs. In conjunction with ARF Ontario, they developed strategies to increase successful adoption rates. Yvette is also known for her blog, and the graphics at Awesome Dogs Shareables.

1. Participants will learn ways in which the scientific method is applied to studies of canine behavior, cognition, learning and training and will be able to identify all of the important components of a well-designed canine research study.
2. Attendees will understand the “evidence pyramid” of science and be able to critically evaluate various sources of information for scientific soundness and reliability.
3. A specific case study example in dog training will be used throughout the presentation to demonstrate concepts of study design, subject selection and representative samples, treatment group assignment, use of control groups, need for double blinding and use of statistical tests.
4. Participants will complete the webinar with an understanding of the types of conclusions that can (and cannot) be made through scientific study and an appreciation of the opportunities and the challenges that studying canine behavior and training in practical settings present.
