But My Dog Isn’t Food Motivated

But My Dog Isn’t Food Motivated

Presented By Kathy Sdao

Monday 14th January 2019, 19:00 – 20:00 (GMT)

When clients say this in an initial interview, my response is “not yet.” Eating is an operant behavior. Therefore, we can increase its probability and intensity and lower its latency through structured training procedures. While this might seem laughable if you have a ravenous Rottweiler or always-hungry hound, situations abound which require skilled intervention: a senior dog whose appetite is fading; a wary dog who has learned to distrust treats; a little dog who is fussy about meals; or a dog whose health is threatened by conditioned anorexia. While various medical conditions (requiring veterinary expertise) may create finicky eaters, so can unwise behavioral practices. We’ll review several common mistakes and provide alternatives.

Presented by Stefania Uccheddu and Dr Simona Seu

Sunday 17th February 2019. 1900 – 20.45 (GMT)

The webinar will explain how veterinarians can apply successfully the person-centered approach developed by C.R. Rogers for communication with clients according to three basic principles that reflect the attitude of the “therapist” to the client. The purpose of C.R. Roger’s approach is to increase a person’s feelings of self-worth, reduce the level of incongruence between the ideal and actual self, and help a person become more of a fully functioning person.

About the Presenter

Toni Shelbourne

Canine Behaviour Practitioner, Tellington TTouch Practitioner, Real Dog Yoga Instructor & Author.

Website: www.tonishelbourne.co.uk

Toni has worked with dogs and wild canids since the late 1980’s; during a long and successful career with the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association she quickly progressed from kennel staff to supervisor and then to staff training. In 1997 she studied under Linda Tellington-Jones and other top Tellington TTouch Instructors, becoming one of the first pupils to qualify as a Companion Animal Practitioner in the UK. In 2000 she left GDBA to pursue her passion for the Tellington TTouch Method and is now one of the highest qualified practitioners in the UK.
In 2001, Toni joined the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, where she went on to become a Senior Wolf Handler and Education Officer for the organisation. Through observing the wolves at close quarters, Toni developed a unique insight into their behaviour which led her to question the prevailing popular ideas about the alpha theory in dogs – ideas which often came into direct conflict with her own knowledge and observations gained at first-hand.
Toni has contributed numerous features to national dog magazines, rescue society newsletters and website blogs and made many appearances on TV and radio. Her first book, The Truth about Wolves & Dogs, was published in 2012, and her second, Among the Wolves: Memoirs of a Wolf Handler, in 2015. Karen Bush and Toni now co-author a series of books called HELP! My Dog…., These mini help books include subjects like car travel, canine compulsive disorder and noise phobia, with many more books planned.
In 2015 Toni studied with Jo-Rosie Haffenden to become a Real Dog Yoga Instructor and in 2017 she updated her skills in behaviour with a qualification from the International School of Canine Psychology & Behaviour with whom she is also an affiliate.
As well as working privately with clients, Toni runs workshops, seminars, gives talks, webinars and demos in Tellington TTouch and Real Dog Yoga. She lives with her husband and rescue dog Mr P in Berkshire, England.
