Workshop 2

The Biology of Dog Aggression: what we know and why it matters
Presenter: Dr. Tim Lewis
Location: Daytona Convention Center
Start Time: 9:00 am ET
End Time: 4:00 pm ET
CEUs: 6

Description:
This workshop will include the basic biological basis for canine aggression with discussions about why these matter. The science should inform our thinking about aggression and our training methods, but science cannot decide the values we apply. In addition, science has too few resources to definitively study all available training techniques in controlled, repeatable experiments. We will cover what we know about the biological role of aggression and the ways it is facilitated and mediated in mammals (particularly our dogs). We will look at the strengths and limits of scientific research related to behavior in general and aggression in particular to help us understand the limits on what we can know. We will also engage in discussions about how to meaningfully use this information in the context of this unique dog/human relationship.

Cost: US $100.00

Workshop 3

Improving Outcomes and Promoting Well-Being Through Choice
Kristina Spaulding, Ph.D., CAAB, and Irith Bloom, CPDT-KSA, CBCC-KA, CDBC, CSAT, KPA CTP, VSPDT, CBATI, FFCP (Trainer), VSDTA Faculty, DWA Faculty

End Time: 4:00 pm ET
CCPDT Hands-on CEU: 3
Total CEU: 6.5

Description:
In this hands-on workshop, Dr. Kristina Spaulding and Irith Bloom will help you understand how providing animals with a variety of choices impacts everything from well-being to learning and behavior. Important scientific principles related to choice and control will help you solidify the foundation on which you base your training. Practical exercises, both with fellow attendees and hands-on with shelter dogs, will help you apply the information presented. Join us for a special, small-group exploration of how choice can transform animals’ lives!
