    Presented by Malena DeMartini-Price


    CPDT 1, IAABC 2, KPA 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.

    Presented by Niki Tudge


    IAABC 1.5 , CPDT 1.5, KPA 1.5

    Wherever two or more people come together, there is the possibility of conflict. This conflict can be between you and your clients, employees and contractors or a business vendor. This webinar will give participants a six-step process that they can use to modify and resolve conflicts of any size. Participants will also learn crucial conflict resolution skills including dealing with anger and using the Agreement Frame.

    Join Niki Tudge for this 90 minute  webinar on Conflict Resolution. 

    People often assume that conflict is always negative. This is not true! People are inherently different and conflict simply happens when those differences come to light. Viewing conflict in this way can help us maximize the possible positive outcomes of the problem at hand. Equipped with a conflict resolution process people can explore and understand those differences, and use them to interact in a more positive, productive way.


    • Understand what conflict and conflict resolution mean
    • Understand all six phases of the conflict resolution process
    • Understand the five main styles of conflict resolution
    • Be able to adapt the process for all types of conflicts
    • Be able to break out parts of the process and use those tools to prevent conflict
    • Be able to use basic communication tools, such as the agreement frame and open questions
    • Be able to use basic anger and stress management techniques

    Presented by  Janis Bradley


    PPAB 1.5, IAABC 1.5, CPDT 1.5, KPA 1.5

    "That's the Lab in him." "None of my other Cattle Dogs acted like this," dog guardians will say, and often expect their pet's breed will predict his behavior and personality. In attempting to facilitate good relationships (and sometimes good matchmaking between dogs and adopters), we often make 3 assumptions: that we can reliably identify the ancestry of even mixed breed dogs; that breed can help us predict the likelihood of behaviors that were sought in the historical work of the breed or breeds; that this ancestral work is relevant to what pet dog adopters need in their companions. 

    This presentation will explain the weaknesses in visual breed identification and breed based behavior explanations and will demonstrate other ways to talk with clients about expectations and modification of an individual dog's behavior.

    Webinar Objectives

    • Understanding the misinformation inherent in framing behavior to clients in terms of breed characteristics.
    • Alternatives to breed labeling of mixed breed dogs. 
    • Alternatives to breed based explanations of behavior.
