Description
CARAT Level 1.2 on June 12th - 13th in Sidney, BC. Early Bird Cost: $345 (register before April 1st). Regular: $395.

Prerequisite: CARAT Level 1.1 and commitment to the CARAT certification path developed by Suzanne Clothier in 2007. CARAT (Clothier Animal Response Assessment Tool) is a novel assessment system that categorizes behavior traits in multiple components that are intuitive and practical. It is the assessment system currently in use at Guiding Eyes for the Blind, one of the world's largest guide dog schools, and is used to evaluate puppies, breeding stock and dogs coming in for training. CARAT takes a detailed view of the individual dog as a unique combination of many factors working together to influence, exacerbate, mitigate and enhance each other. In the profile created by the nuances and specifics of this complex interaction of multiple traits, an accurate picture is created of the individual, regardless of breed or age. CARAT (Clothier Animal Response Assessment Tool) is a must have tool for any serious animal professional who is involved in assessing behaviour.

To learn more about CARAT go to http://suzanneclothier.com/content/carat.

NOTES

Description
Whether you are participating in a working spot or audit spot, this is a workshop you don't want to miss. Recognized by many as being one of the most innovative trainers in the sport, Ed creates solutions to training problems. He and his dogs have earned over 50 tracking titles, on 10 different breeds of dogs, including 12 TDX, 5 VST and 3 CT titles while training dozens of other breeds and their handlers to attain advanced titles. Ed has trained over 5,000 dogs in tracking, through his series of international seminars, workshops and tracking camps. Having worked with over 140 different breeds of dogs, he brings a refreshing motivational outlook on dog training to this sport.

This is not an intro to tracking workshop. You and your dog will require a background in tracking to participate. We require a minimum of a TD title on the dog you are planning to bring to the workshop. Audit Spots are available for all levels.

NOTES

Description
Regular Dog-to-dog interactions are difficult to master. Because we don't speak Dog, and dogs don't speak English, we are stuck with interpreting what we see... and sometimes, we are wrong. It can be hard to know what to do. But we want to get it right. We all have the same questions and worries when two or more dogs are together. Are we being too cautious? Or too careless? Do we just let them work it out or try to orchestrate pleasant encounters? When is it okay to put two dogs together? What is play and what is not play? Who is a suitable playmate? Do size or age differences matter? Is it an argument or serious fight?

Practical information and techniques will be discussed (and demonstrated as possible), including: Reading Body Language (important clues), Connection & Control (supporting your dog & remaining connected), The Think & Learn Zone (how arousal affects dog-dog interactions), Management vs. Training (know the difference), Permissions, Not Permissive (the power of explicit permissions), Safe Introductions (multiple techniques for sensible, safe introductions), Even Though...Training (developing responsibility in the dog for self-control & appropriate behavior even though), Look Who's Here! (changing attitudes towards others), Breaking Up Dog Fights Safely For those involved in rescue, fostering dogs can create additional stresses on your permanent canine family. Special considerations and practical tips for meeting the unique needs of fosters will be addressed.

Join us for this intense two day seminar packed full of practical information, effective techniques based on hard won experience. For more information and to register, visit: www.canine-chaos.com/events/2014-suzanne-clothier-seminar/.

Cost: $299 Early Bird (register before April 1, 2014). Regular - $349.
