A clinic is a trouble-shooting session for dogs with issues or problems - anything from shyness or poor recall to lunging while on leash. Each case is discussed and handled separately, though training might take place with two or more dogs, depending on the problem being worked on. This is a great way to help your dog while learning about how to solve other behavior problems!
As a handler you will be working with your (or your client’s) dog during the session. The session will be limited to 5 dogs with handlers.
As an auditor, you can observe and participate without a dog.
Pre-registration is required:

Fear is the most primitive and necessary of all emotions – it’s also the one that interferes most with the lives of us and our companions. Fear can be the reason your dog is aggressive to other
dogs, to men, or to children, or it can cause anxiety that wrecks havoc on our homes. This seminar covers the causes of fear, the body language of fear and some ways we can help our dogs
overcome this most prevalent of issues.
This workshop is on Sunday May 5th from 12:30 until six at 1400 Emeline Avenue, building K (room 206/207), Santa Cruz CA.
$50 prepaid fee is required to reserve a seat.

Time: 9am—5pm each day
Location: Training With Grace
This seminar will focus on understanding our dogs and why they do the things they do, including guarding, showing aggression, expressing fearful or overly assertive behavior. Trish will also address retention of sociability level, aggression in adolescent dogs, and what that looks like in adult dogs. She will also clarify how energy and arousal contribute to aggression and what we, as humans, can do to help our dogs with it. Trish will work through leash aggression, bully dogs, introduction problems, predatory behavior, redirected aggression and more. Trish will guide us with what questions to ask ourselves and/or our clients about human leadership, preventing aggression, relationship work, owner management, and dos and don’ts about how to work with aggression.
Anxiety is arguably the most pervasive and invasive behavior problem we have to deal with. Dogs with separation anxiety don't take time off - they are either with the owner...or they're frantic,
desperate, and destructive.
Dogs with generalized anxiety seem sure that the world is coming to an end now, and lack the ability to calm themselves down. And dogs that combine fear and anxiety are usually the ones who resort to aggression quickly.
During this workshop, we'll examine anxiety, what owners believe about their dogs, and what can be done about it. In addition, we'll look at fear based aggression and behavior modification techniques
