    I have discovered massive loopholes in conglomerate rescue websites as they relate to Massachusetts state law, and how the culture of obtaining dogs by click-and-ship is harming the human-dog relationship. This affects both puppy mill dogs and rescue. There is information out regarding puppy mill dogs, less about trucking sick dogs via rescue. The focus will be on the latter, though I will address both. 

    After detailing where we are going wrong in obtaining our dogs, I present responsible, ethical ways to get pet professionals  at the table together to change the culture of how we talk about dogs, how we get dogs, and how we help dogs together.

    Webinar Objectives

    • Understand how less-reputable breeders are able to continue selling sick and undersocialized puppies to the public, even with increased awareness of puppy mill operations.
    • Understand how some rescues are using legal loopholes in Pet Finder (and similar sites) to ship clinically under-socialized dogs to city centers, and what affect that has on families.
    • Recognize the language anyone selling a dog will use to move the dog; how to work with that language and remain professionally able to guide our students while helping the dog.
    • Be able to identify quality rescues, shelters, and breeders; be able to identify quality dog trainers, behavior consultants, applied animal behaviorists and veterinary behaviorists; be able to pass that information along to clients.

The webinar will also suggest contexts where antecedent arrangements are contra-indicated from a welfare perspective.

      Webinar Objectives

      • Help trainers think critically about LIMA as it applies in practical dog training contexts.

      We all have a vision of our multi-species home as a peaceable kingdom, but how do we make that dream a reality? First impressions do matter, and the initial "introduction" of dogs and cats can make a huge difference in establishing successful dog-cat households. This webinar will review strategies for successfully integrating new dog to a household with a resident cat and vice versa. This process starts prior to the animals' first meeting and may continue for days, weeks, or months before stabilizing.

      In addition, it will cover pain points and possible solutions for building a successful relationship that can endure the test of time. For professionals, it will also review important areas to discuss with your clients. These include helping your client set realistic expectations for process, expectations and timeline. We will also touch on factors, such as physical home set up, family composition, and lifestyle that can also affect this process. In addition, we will address issues related to the animals' past experience and personalities that may help or hinder the integration process, as well as the importance of meeting the basic needs of all household members throughout the integration process.

      Learning Objectives

      • Understand the basic process for integrating a dog-cat multi-species household.

      • Identify human and animal factors that may delay or impede the integration process.
      • Be prepared to discuss potential issues with non-animal professionals.

      Presented by Beth Adelman

      CEUs: PPAB 1, CCPDT 1, IAABC 1



      While positive reinforcement is always my first choice in working with cats, many times very frightened/under-socialized cats will not accept food, play, a happy tone of voice, petting, or any interaction at all with humans. If nothing you offer the cat is rewarding in that moment, how do you gain the cat’s trust? I have found a behavior modification protocol using negative reinforcement to be very effective in these situations.

      I am using the term “negative reinforcement” in the strict sense of removing something to increase the likelihood that a behavior will be repeated. I do not use aversives in this behavior modification protocol. My goal is always to move the cat as quickly as possible to a state where he or she is able to accept positive reinforcement.


      Learning Objectives

      • A very quick review of the four quadrants of negative and positive reinforcement and punishment, as used in discussing operant conditioning.
      • Why positive reinforcement might not work for some cats in some situations.
      • What kinds of cats/situations might do better with negative reinforcement.
      • Why negative reinforcement might work for those cats.
      • A step-by-step explanation of a negative reinforcement behavior modification protocol for working with cats in a home environment. I will use the case study of one of my own cats as the framework for describing this protocol.
      • I will point out where I customized the protocol for this cat, for clients’ cats, and how it can be customized for each individual cat. Emphasis is on meeting each cat where they are.
      • How a negative reinforcement behavior modification protocol is used to lead the cat to a state where he or she can accept positive reinforcement for further behavior modification work.
      • If time permits, some tips on other ways to help a frightened/under-socialized cat adapt to a new home.

      Part 1/3

      Presented by Jessica Gonzalez

      CEUs: PPAB 1, IAABC 1


      This is the first part of a three part webinar focused on building a strong foundation of clicker training with your horse. Michelle Martiya and Alize Muckensturm will be presenting the other two parts. We aim to give you the tools to get started actively working with your horses with positive reinforcement.

      Part one will be focused on teaching your horse to stand calmly facing forward. For horses who are comfortable around humans who know how to take treats from your hand, this is a valuable first skill to start with. It teaches the horse how to relax and be comfortable around food while you condition your bridge signal. This becomes a safe default behavior you can use to teach stimulus control on all future behaviors you teach. From here Alize will help you teach your horse how to touch a target which can be used to shape future behaviors. Michelle will go over helping horses who are not yet ready for this step to become comfortable and ready to work with humans.

      Objective

      • How to safely and effectively get started using positive reinforcement with your equine. Focusing on teaching the horse how to stand calmly facing forward. Building a clicker training foundation with your horse

      About Your Presenter

      Jessica runs a non-profit horse rescue and education program. She is extremely dedicated to teaching and promoting a positive reinforcement lifestyle, working with horses and humans alike. The rescue has a growing program of volunteers and students eager to learn to work with equines with clicker training. Jessica also travels to teach students locally and at events.

This part of the series includes short videos and photos to inspire everyone to give it a trial.

      We will then discuss the tools needed to get started with their own horse by outlining the training steps to teach basic nose targeting.

      Objective

      - Introduce the use of target training in horse training

      - Learn how targeting is used 

      - Learn how to introduce targeting to a horse.

      By building a positive conditioned response to a particular implement and following a good desensitization plan, trainers can help even dogs who are fearful about nail care. Even better, trainers can coach owners through the process effectively, giving them the opportunity to create a lifetime of cooperative care.

      We'll cover why DS is often necessary and how to walk through the process effectively, by being mindful of body language and working at the dog's pace.

      We'll also cover nail and paw anatomy, so that even those most shy about nail care can become comfortable with it!

      Objectives

      - Gain an understanding of why nail care can be so difficult for some dogs

      - Learn why the +CER building process is so important to the process

      - Walk through a desensitization process, and be able to teach clients how to do the same

      - Gain an understanding of paw and nail anatomy and why nail maintenance is so important to dogs' health

      Part 3/3

      Presented by Michelle Martiya

      CEUs: PPAB 1, IAABC 1


      This webinar is for people introducing positive reinforcement training to their equines that are struggling with an equine that either refuses the foods they’re offering or won’t perform any behaviors.

      We will be covering various reasons why an equine may seem unmotivated to learn and solutions to this problem, including choosing the right foods, setting up the environment, and working with what the equine can offer on his/her own.

      Objective

      - Understand why your equine might not seem motivated to learn via positive reinforcement.
      - Learn why your equine might not accept food from your hand.
      - Learn why your equine touches the target a few times, then walks away.

      - How to motivate your equine and set him/her up for success.

      About Your Presenter


      Michelle Martiya

      Michelle Martiya began learning about animal behavior and training in 2013, she started out as a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College, before re-discovering a passion for horses. In 2014, she started an equine coaching business, Dragon Horsemanship, with the intention of helping people learn to use positive reinforcement with their equines.

      The more Michelle immersed herself in the equine world, the more she recognized a desperate need for better education in equine behavior and training, so in 2017, she approached Niki Tudge with the idea of starting an equine committee for the PPG, with the goal of reaching and educating more people on these subjects.

      Today Michelle specializes in helping people connect with and train their wild, fearful, and/or aggressive horses via positive reinforcement. You can contact Michelle through www.dragonhorsemanship.com or www.facebook.com/dragonhorsemanship

      In this webinar we'll take a basic look at the nervous system, brain, and hormones, to see how it effects an animals emotions. Using this information we'll see how the emotions are organized into seven basic systems. We'll discuss these 7 emotional systems in individual detail and see how they interact with each other. Then we will look at the emotional systems and see how the effect and interact with our learning and training.

      Learning Objectives

      • Understand the neuroscience study of emotion
      • Review and analyse Jaak Panksepp's Emotional Systems:
      1. FEAR
      2. RAGE
      3. PANIC
      4. LUST
      5. CARE
      6. PLAY
      7. SEEKING
      • Understand how the systems interact and work together
      • Reconcile with why understanding emotions matters so much to us as professionals in our training

      Presented by Kristi Benson

      CEUs: PPAB 1

      Everyone—dog owners and dog professionals—are invited to join in for an hour-long session about jumping and pestering dogs presented by dog trainer Kristi Benson. In her hallmark inviting and funny tone, Kristi will discuss some easy-to-implement techniques to reduce jumping up, begging, mouthing and biting clothes, and mooching. If your dog is like a pogo stick at the door, jumping and mouthing, or begs at the table, there’s help!  Kristi will explore both the underlying “why” questions and then outline ways to prevent the worst offenses by setting your dog up for success, identifying and avoiding problem contexts, and even some easy training techniques you can use to start to change your dog’s behaviour. There will be links to free hand-outs for you to download as well.

       Learning Objectives

      • Why dogs jump up.
      • Easy techniques to keep dogs off of guests at the door.
      • The role of exercise and enrichment to reduce pestering.
      • How to fit exercise and enrichment into your already-busy schedule.
      • Accidental reinforcement and begging, and what to do if that has been happening around your dinner table. This will include why starting to ignore the dog now (i.e. “extinction”) isn’t the best choice to use.
      • Training techniques with proven history (training an alternate behaviour).
      • Why and how to avoid corrections when working with energetic and jumping dogs.

      Fearful shelter cats are numerous in our shelters. If they are not euthanized because of lack of resources, they can spend months in shelters or in foster families with few improvements. While the term feral does not apply to these cats, they do lack the tools to deal with strangers and new places.

      Can we help them gain these tools? Can we change their view of strangers? Can we bring them to a state where their chances of getting adopted and of staying in that home are now good? Join us to think about cats, about the constructional approach and about re-evaluating how we are currently working with fearful cats and why. This presentation will use videos and examples to illustrate the subject.

      Learning Objectives

      • To understand the particularities of cats.
      • To understand what C.A.T. with cats is and why we would want to use it.
      • To geek out on the science of behavior behind it.
      • To get you interested in working with cats!



      About The Presenter


      Caroline Crevier-Chabot


      A civil engineer by training, Caroline always loved animals and found in the science of behavior a true passion. After learning about clicker training through canine freestyle back in 2006, she gradually learned more about behavior and eventually moved to the cat side, clicker training her own cats to do things like getting down trees the “proper” cat way (butt first). Through volunteering at two different shelters, she started to reflect on better ways to care for and rehab fearful shelter cats. Caroline has been fostering fearful cats since 2018 and films her training a lot. She hopes sharing these experiences and thoughts will foster more discussion on cats and on better ways to help them.

      The COVID-19 lockdown and your dog: Tips to help you get ahead of separation anxiety issues before they start


      Not being alone for substantial amounts of time is believed to be a trigger of separation related problems in dogs. While we can’t predict with certainty if your or your clients’s dogs will struggle after the lock down ends, it is certainly a wise move to keep up their alone-time skills and make sure they do not become hyper-dependent on us now.

      In this webinar we will discuss how to:

      • Create a safe haven
      • Use food toys for both enrichment and independence training
      • Work on impulse control and lowering frustration levels as needed
      • Do daily alone-time exercises
      • Cater the management and training approaches for fosters, dogs newly adopted, dogs with previously known separation related problems, and dogs who did not have problems prior to the lock down.

      How much does breed really matter? Are there more differences within breeds or between breeds? Environment and learning are important, but biology matters too. How do the brains of different dogs differ? What might this tell us about their behavior? We know what traits are commonly associated with various breeds, but what does the research actually support?

      This webinar will look at two different studies – one on genetic variation between breeds (with over 14,000 dogs and 101 breeds) and one on variations in brain anatomy between breeds.

      Learning Objectives:

      • Explain what is known about the heritability of behavior as it results to breed
      • Summarize what we know about brain differences between breeds
      • Define gene by environment interactions and explain how they apply to dog behavior
      • Apply the information from today's webinar to working with dogs.
