She paused it momentarily
Is the video choppy for everyone or is it my connection?
Choppy on my end too.
Mine is not?
It was smooth for me.
Chopping on my end.
What about small dogs where a leash around the neck can be harmful?
Use of equipment is not really covered in this presentation. If it's a fearful or easily aroused dog, we would probably still slip the dog and switch equipment once out of the kennel.
I should have said "choice of equipment is not covered in this presentation"
The link to the Part 2 video didn’t seem to work. Could you resend at some point? Thanks.
We can't replay videos in the interest of time but it is being recorded so you can replay as much as you like.
Susan, you can find all the webinar recordings here: https://www.aspcapro.org/training/webinars
Why would you rather have the door open out when you were leashing the small dog?
You are not infringing on the dog's space when the door opens outward. You are in a less vulnerable position yourself. Dog more easily has the option of coming forward. If dog is aggressive and moving toward you, it's a lot harder to quickly close the door to block him.
Handler gave dog too much slack on the leash
dog was capable of redirecting
Edward Marits PhD
Wow, a number of things
Handler put their face in the dog’s face while dog was very aroused.
Handler’s face in dog’s face
Lack of control over the door.
Would have been more ideal to use a quick release to prevent having to reach back in to unleash.
Starting off with less leash slack , not getting hands on the dog who might redirect would be good to. Taking more control initially and getting the dog into the kennel quickly without giving the dog choice to move away.
Could the handler have covered some of the other kennels to block visual access to prevent some of the frustration in this young dog?
Sometimes it can be helpful to go into the kennel first but if you don't know the dog, it puts you in an unsafe position.
The loop being raised closer to the ears
Short leash, limited movement of dog
Multiple points of physical contact calmed dog
Great to move the leash up to the Throat latch, however would it not be more prudent to do this before entering the kennel environment?
Took time to regroup and prep before going into the kennel first.
why not playing Through Dogs Ear CALMING music IN ALL facilities??? It helps tremendously!!! Please!
Kinga Vurm. I'm glad that you find the music helpful. There is some evidence that certain types of music are more calming for dogs but studies have not looked at long term effects. I'm unaware of any research specifically on Through a Dog's Ear except the research done by the company that produces the music.
Research has been done and shows…the human voice is better than music/…. So podcasts!
Why the thick color during the introduction?
We use wide collars to minimize stress on the dog's neck if we anticipate that they are likely to pull or lunge.
Please send your questions!
Great information- thank you!
Chelly Bolger Wathen
Was not clear - when you walk dog through kennel area you want the dog next to other dogs or you in between?
Is there any advice when a dog goes into a full blownpanic attack while walking on a leash?
Very good information
No question here... just want to say thank you for sharing your expertise.
can you speak at all about dealing with leash reactive/barrier reactive dogs specifically? thank you so much this has been wonderful -- I hope ASPCA will host more behavioral webinars in the future. this is a tremendous resource to all of us!! I want to attend 50000 more!! so many questions -- so much AMAZING info. these are SO vaulable
Thank you for your most informative presentation! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
When handling a dog that gets really aroused in the kennel environment, is it better to just exit the kennel as fast as possible or try to work on impulse control but sitting in front of doors before opening, working on lunging, etc.?
Bridget, Thank you - very informative and easy to understand. Go Badgers!
Do you use alprazolam to help with anterograde/retrograde amnesia if dog is going to have or has had a stressful experience to try and prevent further learning?
**by not but
No we do not use alprazolam unless it's for a specific concern for that individual dog and under the guidance of a veterinary behaviorist.
What are the visual cues you would use in making a decision to cease and on leash interaction. What are your hard "stop" actions on the behalf of consideration for a dogs safety?
When you have a fearful dog that needs a behavioral evaluation do you always allow the dog to initiate contact and if it does come near you do you end the evaluation there? Or at what point do you stop an evaluation for a fearful dog?

does Tellington touch help calm a dog?
I admit I'm not current on good quality TTouch research. I know it is for horses.
Tellington touch could help but only if the dog liked touch….so assess dog’s behaviour first
Don't forget, this webinar is being recorded and you'll receive an email with the link later this week! In the meantime you can rewatch parts 1 and 2 of this series here: https://www.aspcapro.org/training/webinars
