What’s Been Happening in Behavior Education Network:
BEN now has its own Facebook group. We’ve discussed conditioned emotional responses and can they be put "on cue", a dog "guarding" the child in the family (or not), what to do when differences between you and local shelters crop up, and more issues presented as behavior problems that may not be, and MUCH more!
August: The months’ Pro webinar is "Ask The Behaviorist", your chance to ask burning questions and get medium-rare answers. The Biscuit for the month is "Four Fallacies About Prey Drive". We’ll talk about what those fallacies are and why the concept just won’t die.
July: The Pro member Webinar this month is "Counter Conditioning and Desensitization: Is Everything Old New Again?" This webinar is also available for purchase by non-members from PetProWebinars.com
The Biscuit topic this month is "Tips and Resources for Summer Travel With Your Pet" – articles for pet owners that members can use on their blogs, websites, or as client handouts.
The CAABChat topic is "Practicalities and Protocols for Safe Relationships Between Children and Dogs". Live CAABChats are free to everyone, but only BEN members have access to the replays at no cost.
June: The Pro Member Webinar this month is about helping clients make difficult decisions about the fate of their pets it’s titled "When a Pet’s Future is On the Line: Your Roles and Responsibilities in Decision Making". Our CAABChat is "Horse Training: Past, Present and Future." This month’s Biscuit series addresses important questions raised in last month’s CAABChat on Resource Guarding
May: This month’s Members Only Webinar is a detailed examination of some of the research presented in Scott and Fuller’s classic book, "The Genetics and Social Behavior of the Dog". This month’s CAABChat is a discussion of Resource Guarding Behavior by Dogs and issues around shelter testing with Dr. Amy Marder and Ms. Lindsay Wood. The Biscuit series for this month is about recognizing and addressing behavioral wellness issues as part of regular training and consulting appointments. The Science Article we reviewed is a new one on risk factors for dog aggression to people, very appropriate for Dog Bite Prevention Week!
April: Our Pro Members Webinar for the month is "Do Dog Parks and Doggie Day Cares Help or Hurt the Welfare of Dogs?” Our Biscuit topic is "Helping Clients Form New Habits" and our CAABChat topic is "Cat Social Behavior" with Drs. Victoria Voith and Jessica Lockhart two behaviorists with years of experience working with cats.
