Event description

Description

This fantastic conference is for behaviourists, trainers and dog owners

The Canine Behaviour and Training Society (TCBTS) are very excited to welcome our guest speakers:

Sarah Whitehead, BA(Hons), MSc, CCAB

Sarah Fisher, Tellington TTouch Instructor, Canine & Equine Behaviour Advisor.

Sarah Whitehead will look at some of the most important questions we need to ask when dealing with dogs with aggression issues including what makes a dog choose to use an aggression strategy and how to help dogs choose alternative behavioural options, even in moments of 'crisis'. Sarah will discuss early developmental behaviours in the dog and some surprising findings she has made on puppy interactions during her own recent two-year study. Sarah will also take a critical look at what may (or may not!) help to avoid aggression problems in our dogs in the future including her views on puppy classes and her new theory on the importance of adolescence.

Sarah Fisher will talk about predatory behaviour in dogs. Having shared her life with Sighthounds and being an on-going student of a terrier blend, Sarah is passionate about supporting guardians of dogs that chase and kill. There are patterns to both behaviour and posture, and the two are inextricably linked. This presentation will cover observations to help increase awareness of the more subtle changes in a dog’s posture and when they might occur, and tips and techniques to help lower levels of arousal and enable dogs to learn new skills.
