Do You Want To Help More Shy, Fearful or Anxious Dogs?
Gain Knowledge, New Skills & More Confidence!
Presented by Kathy Cascade
CEUs: PPAB 11, IAABC (pending), CCPDT (pending)
This seminar will be helpful for owners of dogs who exhibit shy, fearful, or anxious behaviors, and dog trainers, rescue and animal welfare professionals, or other pet care professionals who work with dogs with these behavior issues.
Kathy will present an effective and positive approach to working with dogs who exhibit difficult behavior issues such as extreme fearfulness, anxiety, reactivity to new environments, noise phobias, and hyper-arousal. “S.A.N.E. Solutions” is simply a collection of tools and creative exercises designed to help dogs reduce tension and arousal while building confidence and coping skills. The goal is to give the dog a new experience of feeling safe, calm, and in control while in a challenging environment or in the presence of other dogs or people, which previously would have elicited a fearful response. Based on the principles of Tellington TTouch Training and sensory integration, this approach employs the use of novel sensory experiences to enhance learning.

Day 2: 9 AM - 4 PM, with breaks 10:30-10:45 (refreshments), 12-1 (lunch) and 2:30-2:45 (refreshments).
About Your Presenter
Kathy Cascade, PT, PT-A, Tellington TTouch Instructor
Kathy's introduction to dog training began in 1991 when a slightly wild and wonderful Alaskan Malamute puppy came into her life. Kathy and Spirit's partnership lead them to competition obedience trials, participation in fly ball, and as a visiting Therapy Dog/Handler team in hospitals and nursing homes. Searching for a truly respectful and gentle approach to working with animals, Kathy completed the two-year Tellington TTouch Companion Animal Practitioner Certification Program, graduating in October 1996 and later becoming an instructor in the program in 2003.
With her professional training and experience as a Physical Therapist, Kathy offers a unique perspective on the neurophysiologic and sensory aspects of dog behavior to her students. Known for her creative, engaging, and often humorous teaching style, Kathy has presented workshops and seminars throughout the US, Canada, and in Europe.
Kathy’s skillful approach to working with dogs with aggression and fear issues led her to develop a series of seminars titled S.A.N.E. Solutions for Challenging Dog Behavior. Her calm, confident demeanor serves her especially well in working with these cases. Kathy states, "Helping dogs learn to cope with the demands of living in our often chaotic human world is a passion of mine. Creating a sense of calm and safety for the dog is the first step to eliminating reactive and fearful behavior. We can do this with humane, effective tools for reducing stress and building confidence. It gives me great joy to see these dogs make the transformation from living in a state of fear to feeling safe in the world."
Kathy recently relocated back to her home state of Oregon. Living in the Central Oregon region allows her to pursue her other passions of hiking, skiing, and kayaking. She shares her life with two dogs, one cat, and two horses.

The Industry’s Hidden Treasure – Conformation Classes and Coaching
There is a huge area of dog training business that is not being utilized by most dog trainers and that is working with show dogs. So many people don’t take on show dog clients because they don’t feel they have enough experience, but there is a lot that skilled positive reinforcement trainers have to offer and this workshop will help them put the pieces together to offer conformation classes. Since the release of her first book in 2007, Vicki has created many successful techniques for training and perfecting show ring behaviors and walked the line between being a successful positive reinforcement trainer and being an owner/handler/breeder in the show ring. She has coached many longtime breeders, breed enthusiasts and professional handlers to teach them new ways to approach show dog training and problem solving.
