WEBINAR: IS THIS A GOOD TIME? Evaluations, Assessments & Functionality

This webinar will encourage you to think about assessments and testing in deeper ways, including knowing what you need to know, defining your criteria, and scaling the responses and behaviors you observe. Suzanne’s legendary observation skills and whole-dog approach, plus her FAT app, gives you new tools to understand the dogs in your life.

Assessing behavior and evaluating a dog can be challenging! So many factors play a role in the dog’s behavior that it can be difficult to distinguish a response to environmental or social triggers from a true temperament response or behavior pattern. When we carefully assess function as a reflection of well-being, we have a better sense of how that dog is doing.

WEBINAR: WALK A MILE IN THEIR PAWS: Creating the BEST Socialization Experiences

Socialization is a fine art.

Done well, socialization of a puppy or a new dog (whatever their age!) results in positive and informative experiences that build the dog’s understanding of the world.

Socialization checklists are everywhere! But when we follow a checklist instead of listening to what our specific dog needs, we can end up doing more harm than good. Each socialization outing can be successful when we use the individual dog’s temperament, sensory perception of the world, age, skills and experience to guide us. 

SEMINAR: Can You Hear Me Now?

One of the best things about dogs is how hard they try to communicate with us. They use their eyes, their bodies, even their voice, and of course, those amazing tails!

But did you ever wonder if maybe you’re not quite getting the message? Or if you’ve misunderstood your dog? Or perhaps you just want to learn more, more, more! This seminar is taught by internationally respected trainer Suzanne Clothier, whose approach that encompasses the whole dog – physical, mental and emotional.

SEMINAR: If Goldilocks Was A Dog Trainer

The wonderful moment in a life shared with dogs occur when we can see that things are “just right” for our dog. Like Goldilocks sliding into a bed that’s not too soft, not too hard, we are glad when we see our dogs are enjoying life, able to learn, comfortable in the moment, and connected with us.

But those “just right” moments can be hard to find at times.

Whatever your experience – first time owner or long-time professional – Suzanne will give you new ways to observe and assess, as well as sensible solutions and practical information to help you and your dog create more of the “just right” moments.
