    Program Contents

    The Pet First Aid program  covers topics from heat stroke to snake bites, CPR, wound management and how to safely transport a pet to the care of a veterinarian professional.

    It should be remembered that first aid is literally that: aid or management that is rendered as soon as a problem is identified at the scene of an accident or injury, and as a bridge between those first to respond to a problem until the time when professional care is provided.

    Many people confuse first aid with specific treatment for an illness or injury. This often results in proper care never being received or care being delayed to such an extent as to compound the problem.

    The PPG Pet First Aid Certification

    To receive your PPG Pet First Aid Certification  you will have to complete and pass an open-book online certification test comprised of 50 questions.

    You will also be required to provide  four short 30 second videos to demonstrate hands on competency. Full details are explained in the presentation.

    Presented by Malena DeMartini-Price

    CEU's

    CPDT 1, IAABC 2, KPA 1, PPAB 1

     

    This webinar is about understanding separation anxiety and the various facets of its treatment ‐ from client support to protocols, technology and a bit about medication. Separation Anxiety is a  behavior disorder that for so long has plagued trainers, behaviorists, owners and veterinarians as being truly problematic in treatment and often unfixable.

    Through this webinar Malena would like you to become less afraid to take on these cases because they are quite treatable and the owners of these dogs truly need your help. The treatment is not complex; it is simply in the details that we have often failed to get the exact order of things correct to get the results needed.

    Learning Objectives

    • To learn how to effectively counsel and motivate separation anxiety clients and keep them committed 
    • To understand how to create an effective separation anxiety protocol for maximum efficiency 
    • To have a view into the very important technology and tools that are so useful in accelerating separation anxiety training 
    • To have a brushstroke look at the holistic supplements and medications that can be useful in separation anxiety treatment

     10 years’ experience. During Malenas career she has worked with several hundred separation anxiety cases. As a trainer who exclusively handles separation anxiety cases in her practice she has found numerous creative solutions for a disorder that often baffles owners and trainers alike. 

    Malena’s particular strength lies in reading the subtleties of dog body language and guiding owners patiently and with great enthusiasm through the gentle process of healing their dogs. Using web technology, Malena counsels clients all over the country and even has a few international clients, giving her an unusually keen view of different types of separation anxiety scenarios.  

    Malena has written for several publications and has given her seminar Fixing the Unfixable nationwide. She is currently in the editing phase with her publisher on her book that is focused on helping trainers to work with this disorder.

    Over Threshold: The Changing Definition



    Join Eileen Anderson for this thought provoking webinar. 

    Something has happened to the word “threshold.” Surprisingly, the way the term is used in the force free dog training community is comparatively new. The general consensus is that the term “over threshold” refers to a dog that has been adversely affected by a stimulus and demonstrating that by overt behavior. However, this usage differs from the original definition of “threshold" as used in the discipline of psychology. The discrepancy between the usages contributes to some confusion in the training community. 


    The webinar will cover several different usages of the word “threshold” as applied to the senses, emotions, and behavior of dogs, and how different methods of training and conditioning dogs with behavior problems fit with regard to these various tipping points. 

    Webinar Learning Objectives

    1. To understand the psychological and physiological definitions of the term “threshold.”

    2. To review the usage of the term “over threshold” in the dog training community.

    3. To learn about the physiological “fight or flight” response.

    4. To understand the definition of “aversive” and its implications when dealing with fear responses.

    5. To see where the different protocols for dealing with fear and aggression in dogs fit with the varied meanings of “threshold.”

    With Jean Donaldson

    CEU: PPAB 1.5, IAABC 1.5, CPDT 1.5,  KPA 1.5

    This 90 minute webinar will be a discussion on the Development of Standard Operating Procedures in Pet Dog Training.

    Dog training is unlicensed and unregulated, without consumer protection, standards of care or minimum educational requirements. This landscape has fostered a bewildering array of methods as well as frank quackery, the equivalent to veterinarians self-teaching via popular books, seminars and TV shows, and then developing their own “patented” and wildly divergent ways to do basic procedures such as spays, neuters (including on kitchen tables with unsterilized butter knives) and IM injections.

    A symptom of this is the seeking of trainers stumped by basic behavior mod challenges of “out of the box” solutions. This webinar will propose that there is not much of a box to think out of in dog training. There are no standard operating procedures for teaching basic obedience, no standardized protocols for resolving common behavior problems such as house-soiling, barking, fear and aggression, no referral thresholds, no diagnostic criteria, no specific consumer protection in the event of gross misconduct or incompetence.

    This Wild West make-up-your-own-method has resulted in pushes by better developed professions, such as veterinarians, to remove the rights of dog trainers to do any diagnostic work or behavior modification. However, given the scarcity of credentialed veterinary behaviorists, the time and educational constraints of general practice veterinarians, and the massive demand for behavior services, properly trained dog trainers can be the cornerstone of the solution.

    Nutrigenomics for Dogs: Creating Health & Vitality through Food


    with Dr. Jean Dodds

    CEUs

    IAABC 1.5 CEUs
    CPDT 1.5 CEUs
    KPA 1.5 CEUs

    Obesity, gastrointestinal disorders, skin irritations, chronic yeast infections, behavioral issues, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, heart disease and cancer. These are just a few common health conditions that are skyrocketing in our dogs. These conditions all share inflammation at the cellular level, and much of it stems from the lifestyles our dogs share with us, namely their modern diet. Many foods marketed to nourish ourselves and our dogs actually wreak havoc on them from the inside out, resulting in rampant obesity and chronic disease. But it doesn't have to be this way.

    Scientific information from the field of nutrigenomics tells us how diet affects gene expression (the process of turning genes on or off within a cell) at the cellular level, creating vibrant health or chronic disease. The right foods send healthy messages to the body’s cells. For example, certain foods “starve” tumor cells of nutrients they need to grow; and a compound in spirulina possesses anti-arthritic, anti-cancer and liver-protective properties.

    Humans and domestic dogs share a parallel genomic evolution, particularly for genes associated with digestion and metabolism, neurological processes and diseases such as cancer. Can nutrition prevent or cure their current chronic illnesses? The answer is-absolutely!

    Webinar Objectives

    • Learn about how genes, the genome and epigenome promote vigor and health through the diet, rather than lead to chronic illness. 
    • Understand how foods control gene expression at the cellular level.
    • Learn which nutrients suppress chronic disease and promote health and longevity.
    • Finally, translate this to functional foods and individualized targeted nutrition.
