Due to what happened throughout 2020 going into 2021 professional development was done in a different way as normally workshops, seminars etc are attended to keep moving forward in this industry.
But due to the Covid situation these were unable to be attended, so webinars were the way forward for continued learning.
Below is a list of webinars I attended for continued personal development within the canine industry:
Who Controls The Training Session – You or The Animal? – Dr. Karonlina Westlund (Nov 2020)
This was discussing the improving welfare when training and also listening to what is being said verbal and non verbal to help listen and train a dog that is being worked with, and knowing the best way to interact for the training required.
Adolescent Behaviour – Engae The Brain, Reduce The Pain! – Sarah Fisher (Nov 2020)
This covered the biological process and periods of a dog and the misunderstandings that happen due to owners not recognising this period which can create conflict within the relationship between dog and owner.
The Role Of Nutrition On Behaviour – Dr. Conor Brady (Nov 2020)
This webinar covered how various topics relating to processed foods which can impact on training in dogs and how the gut has a part to play in unwanted behaviours.
An Introduction To The Science Of Canine Olfaction – Dr. Nathan Hall (Nov 2020)
This webinar covered different myths about the canine olfactory system. Covering sensitivity, Breed differences and odour mixture perception.
