Janice trained and certified more than 450 dog trainers at the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals between 2000 and 2009 where she worked directly with more than 1,500 dogs of all breeds and appearances. In 2010 Janice founded the Dog Training Internship Academy.
For 15 years Janice helped owners with pets that had evidenced behavior problems, specializing in aggression issues.
Janice is currently the Director of Communications and Publications for the National Canine Research Council, a canine policy think tank that conducts, reviews, and disseminates academically rigorous research which studies dogs in the context of human society. She has lectured widely on behavior at meetings of various animal control, training, and humane organizations. Janice will be presenting at PPG's Summit in November 2015 in Tampa, FL

Once you have set training goals, it makes sense to use your time efficiently to achieve outcomes.
This webinar will detail a way for you to structure your training sessions so that you and your dog are set up for success.
Whether you are training a companion or a performance dog it is important to be aware of aware of all factors so you can control the environment to your advantage. This will help you reach your training goals sooner.
Dawn Gilkison KPA CTP is the owner of Positive Solutions Dog Training, located in the Portland, Oregon metro area.
Dawn has trained dogs for agility, obedience, conformation, and upland and waterfowl hunting. She works with clients one-on-one to create attentive companions and focused performance dogs. In addition to training dogs, Dawn teaches Biology at a local community college.
About the Presenter
Presented by Dr. Holly Ganz

We will start with some background information about the microbiome and its role in animal health, including digestion, immunity, and the nervous system. Then we will consider how contemporary lifestyles, such as antibiotic usage and modern diets, may affect the composition of microbes living in the digestive tract.
We will consider how various health conditions, such as Irritable Bowel Disease is associated with alterations in the gut microbiome and the implications of these observations. Finally we will review different approaches that can be taken to improve gut health.
Webinar Learning Objectives
Holly H. Ganz, PhD, CEO and founder of AnimalBiome, is a microbiologist, who has published more than 20 papers. She left academia to become an entrepreneur when she founded AnimalBiome in the fall of 2016. AnimalBiome provides assessments of the bacterial composition of the digestive tract of dogs and cats and is creating therapies to help promote healthy guts. Her efforts to translate academic research into solutions for animal lovers began when she launched KittyBiome, a citizen science project that she started while working at the University of California (UC), Davis in 2015. From the KittyBiome project, she came to appreciate that digestive disorders are common in pets and that there is a pressing need for better diagnostics and therapeutics.
Holly received her PhD from UC Davis, where she studied co-evolution between microbes and animals. After receiving her doctorate, she was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Science Foundation to study how genetics affects the spread of fungal infections in animal populations. Subsequently she was a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley studying how bacterial pathogens survive in soil to infect wildlife. She also holds a MS from UC San Diego, where she studied population genetics, and a BS from George Washington University, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, received Special Honors in the Biological Sciences, and graduated magna cum laude. An animal lover, Holly is dedicated to improving animal health and wellness through the application of the latest innovations in microbiology.
