Common Sense & Cutting Edge Concepts in Dog Training

Houston TX – Common Sense & Cutting Edge Concepts in Dog Training

Saturday, October 25th 2014 from 1:00pm – 7:45pm

This seminar comprises a collection of diverse concepts and topics that Dr. Dunbar considers to be crucially important for raising and training dogs to be good-natured, well-behaved and reliable off-leash. Much of the syllabus comprises the highlights of Dr. Dunbar’s “Science-Based Dog Training (with Feeling)” seminar series as it evolved over the course of three years. The greater part of the seminar will describe how to motivate dogs for reliability, speed, precision & panache — when off-leash, at a distance and without the continued need for training aids. This is the area of dog training that has welcomed numerous innovative developments over the past few years, especially including, motivation for on-demand, extreme off-leash reliability in an otherwise happy-go-lucky (off-duty) dog, plus techniques for eliminating lack of compliance and undesirable behavior without having to resort to aversive means.

About the Friends of Cherryhurst Park (FCP)

In reaction to a city budget crisis in 2010 that threatened to close Cherryhurst Park Community Center, Montrose neighbors joined forces as the Friends of Cherryhurst Park (FCP) to keep it open.  Today this 501(c)(3) subsidizes bussing children to the park’s free after school programs, helps care for the 75-year-old oak trees, provides free ESL classes, and has new projects in the works (Living Green Wall and Art in the Park).  As one young bus rider wrote, “Cherryhurst Rocks!”.

Practical Behavior Information for Veterinary Practitioners

Houston TX – Practical Behavior Information for Veterinary Practitioners

Sunday, October 26th 2014 from 9:30am – 5:30pm

This program was reviewed and approved by the AAVSB RACE program for 6 hours of continuing education.* 

The seminar comprises just about all that veterinary practitioners need to know about dog behavior and training. The scope of the information is certainly not huge but it’s hugely time-sensitive and critically important for dogs’, owners’ and practitioners’ mental health and quality of life. Dogs develop only a limited number of problems, the problems are utterly predictable and their prevention or resolution is by and large, pretty straightforward, e.g., housetraining a puppy is hardly rocket science.
