with Yvette Van Veen
CEUs: IAABC 1,CPDT 1, KPA 1, PPG 1 CEU
In this webinar you will learn what is a feral and roaming dog? Yvette will speak about how all feral dogs are domesticated because species are domesticated, not individuals.
The webinar will look at what does a feral or roaming dog behave like? What does it look like? How extreme are the variations.
There is a difference between appearance and behaviour. Just because a dog looks like a lab, it doesn't mean it behaves like one. As trainers, we work with behaviour, not so much with appearance.
Working as an animal behaviour consultant for over a decade, Yvette is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant and member of the PPG. She is known for her work as a pet writer, having written for Sun Media (The Londoner), and then as pet writer for the Toronto Star. She is a regular at local schools teaching young children about "asking permission before petting".
The majority of her experience comes from over a decade working with hundreds of feral and roaming dogs. She has shared her life with three such dogs, all of which became model dog ambassadors in the community. Their abilities ranged from helping children in schools, decoy work and therapy programs. In conjunction with ARF Ontario, they developed strategies to increase successful adoption rates. Yvette is also known for her blog, and the graphics at Awesome Dogs Shareables.
