    MARCH 2021 One Great Program – Three Events - 6 Hours of Education!

    Yes, if you choose a ‘working spot’ you will have the opportunity to work with your dog and receive personalized instruction and feedback directly from Leslie. What a great opportunity to work with your dog in a way that you would not have the opportunity to do at a live workshop! No travel hassle or stress – No struggle finding a pet friendly hotel. All the great content without the cost or inconvenience.

    How Will This Work?

    All attendees will attend each of the three webinars (listed below) on the following dates and at the indicated times. Webinar recordings will also be available for 4 weeks after the live event. Following each webinar there will be a live Q&A session on the presented material with Leslie. 6 Hours of education!

    Webinar one: Pattern Games held on March 8, 2021. 5.pm. ET.

    Live Q&A 6: 00.p.m.

    Webinar Two: Look at That held on March 10, 2021 5.pm. ET.

    Your Webinar Descriptions

    a) Pattern Games. Explore the Pattern Games from Leslie’s latest ‘Control Unleashed’ book, ‘Reactive to Relaxed’. These games create a “safety net” of predictability that will help your worried dog process information about the environment from a place of confidence. Your dog will be empowered to direct his/her own counter-conditioning procedure using a ‘Start Button’ behavior that can start or stop the Pattern. The games are simple to learn, easy to customize for any situation and very effective in building your dog's confidence.

    b) Look at That. Look At That, or “LAT,” is perhaps the most popular of the counter-conditioning games to come out of Leslie’s book, ‘Control Unleashed’. Learn how this game has evolved over the years and catch up with the latest understanding about how and why it works. Learn to use the game to teach your dogs and clients’ dogs how to be a ‘Reporter’ instead of a ‘Reactor’! Watch your dog increase his/her confidence about navigating a stressful world as you and he/she learn this uniquely conversational tool together.

    c) Cooperative Counter Conditioning - Delve deeper into Leslie’s concept of cooperative counter conditioning by learning all about RAT (Requested Approach Training) and VS (Voluntary Sharing). These are two ‘Reactive to Relaxed’ protocols that give dogs the use of a ‘Start’ button behavior that empowers them to control a counter conditioning session. RAT will change their feelings about approaching “triggers” or having “triggers” approach them, while Voluntary Sharing will help with resource guarders and dogs who have a hard time taking turns.

    Remote Support via  Facebook Group

    Auditors - We will have a Facebook group set up for attendees where information regarding the webinars and necessary links will be posted. Attendees can network here with other attendees and benefit from discussions and deliberations regarding the information. Recorded webinars and recorded Q&A sessions will be posted in the group

    Working Spots (Strictly Limited to 15 spots ONLY!) - After each webinar Leslie will post information regarding key skills for you to practice and master. Those attendees who are registered for a working spot will have the opportunity to post videos of their training sessions and receive mentoring support and feedback directly from Leslie. Recorded webinars and recorded Q&A sessions will be posted in the group

    In the business of training and consulting, we are bound by some contractual language that outlines some of the key expectations from each party. This formal contract is not the end of the professional-client contract story, however. Once you have established that your contract and liability waiver have been understood and signed, you must then consider the psychological contract. In short, this summarizes the beliefs held by both trainer and student about what they expect from one another. It is an unwritten set of expectations that is constantly at play during the term of the formal contract.

    The interactions you have with your clients are a fundamental feature of the trainer-student relationship. Each individual’s role has a set of behavioral expectations that are often explicit to the individual yet ambiguous to other parties and not defined in the business contract. More disappointment and frustrations come from this set of expectations even though in most cases they have not been clearly outlined and understood.

    Join the presenter as she explores this key and critical component of case management.

    Learning Objectives:

    • What is the psychological contract and why is it so important to the outcome of case management?
    • How can you better and at the front end define the roles, responsibilities and key expectations across team members to prevent “unaware and unfulfilled expectations?”
    • Understand the importance of your system of beliefs and how you can articulate these to your clients.
    • Each role is a set of behavioral expectations very clear to each party but not defined in the business contract. More disappointment and frustrations come from this set of expectations as in most cases they have not been clearly outlined and understood.

    Separation related problems seem to be on most dog parents' minds nowadays as the promise of covid vaccines portends a return to working in offices. We are already seeing an increase in dogs displaying more frustration than anxiety when left alone nowadays, as "pandemic pups" -- those adopted during lockdowns -- have had little opportunity to be left alone or even just relax in a quiet setting.

    While systematic desensitization continues to be the gold standard training method for dogs who are afraid to be alone, a down-stay DRI is highly effective for dogs who are frustrated and can even be helpful for the fearful pups as well. Join us to brush up on your desensitization training skills as well as learn how to use a DRI down-stay to help more families gain the ability to leave their homes without worrying about their dog.

    Learning Objectives:


    1. Understand the different types of separation related problems and how to distinguish them. (i.e anxiety, frustration, underlying health issue.)

    2. Prepare clients to understand how desensitization works so that they are prepared to work at the dog's pace.

    3. Actively assess the dog's fear/frustration threshold while beginning to help the dog become more relaxed within the first desensitization session.

    4. Use down-stay training to aid in a number of ways as needed per each dog: impulse control, frustration reduction, increased relaxation, and habituation to the sights and sounds of a departure.
