National Train Your Dog Month

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) December 28, 2011

National Train Your Dog Month is an Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) annual campaign, and 2012’s event will be better than ever! Join the APDT for free educational webinars and live chats with training and behavior professionals. This year the focus is on not only dogs but many common pets, such as cats, parrots and rabbits.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of pets are turned into animal shelters because their owners couldn’t find a reliable resource to help them with their pets’ behavior problems. Sadly, the end result is often euthanasia at the shelter rather than rehoming the pet. In response, the APDT has designated the month of January as National Train Your Dog Month to bring awareness to the importance of socialization and training for all pets! January was selected as the perfect month because so many animals are adopted and brought home during the winter holidays. The APDT hopes to help families and their pets start the New Year off on the right paw with information on the behavior needs and training of their pets.

To help the pet-loving public, as well as professionals in the animal shelter and others in the pet care industry, the APDT has recorded free educational webinars featuring many well-known pet training and behavior professionals and experts. These webinars will be available starting in January through the Train Your Dog Month event website and are completely free. APDT has also filled the month of January with a variety of “live” Facebook “chats” where anyone can “talk” in real time with professional training and behavior consultants, on a variety of topics pertaining to the training and care of dogs, cats and even rabbits! Anyone with any behavior and training questions can join the chats to learn more about their chosen pet. Visit the event website for full schedule information, professional bios, as well as fun downloadable resources on training and behavior.

The APDT believes that a better understanding of our pets’ behavior can lead to happier, healthier and harmonious households for humans and companion animals. Since 1993, the APDT has promoted education for dog trainers and others in the pet industry. With over 6,000 members who are willing and able to assist pet owners, the APDT is the largest professional organization for pet dog trainers in the world. The APDT encourages anyone interested in learning more about their dogs and other pets to visit the association’s web sites for more information and resources.

Please join the APDT in celebrating National Train Your Dog Month!

Whitey Doing Dog Stuff

Decided I was going to film Whitey for a bit. Problem with recording him is that he thinks EVERYTHING you point at him that isn’t food is the laser pointer. Therefore, he’s always looking down.

Dog and Baby Expert Offers Parents a Free Webinar for Dog Bite Prevention Week

Dog and Baby Expert Offers Parents a Free Webinar for Dog Bite Prevention Week

Cute? “I thought so before I learned more! I took this image 11 years ago!”
Jennifer Shryock

Cary, NC (PRWEB) May 18, 2012

Family Paws Parent Education (FPPE) offers new and expecting families information about dog behavior and communication BEFORE there is a concern or problem. One way FPPE is reaching families is through webinars like “The Inclusion of Family Dogs for Success: Building Dog-Child Bonds” being offered for free for dog bite prevention week.

The challenge of dog bite prevention education is reaching families that believe that their dog would never bite their child. Their dog is a “good” dog and “good” dogs don’t bite…right? Not necessarily. “Good” dogs “communicate” like dogs. They are masters at using many parts of their bodies for subtle communication. Communication that is present, but often missed in a household busy with a baby or toddler.

Babies and toddlers do not come with a parent guide or manual, but when they are stressed, tired or fearful they do communicate in ways that parents can naturally understand. Dogs can’t ask for space or use words to communicate fear, anxiety, stress or pain but dogs do communicate using their body language. Many people are not familiar with and do not naturally understand this type of canine communication. These important topics are covered in the FPPE programs and online webinars. Most bites are a result of a combination of incorrect expectations and lack of awareness about the many subtle signals dogs do offer to indicate stress, conflict, discomfort or a need for space.

Parents are encouraged to be open to learning about their dog’s communication. The more education parents receive about the body language of canine communication, the easier it will be for them to keep both their dogs and their children safe and happy.

These differences between dog communication and human communication are a main cause of conflict and stress in homes where dogs and newly mobile babies live together. Through Family Paws Parent Education classes in communities and webinars online, FPPE is making a difference in the lives of families and dogs worldwide!

The creator of the programs, certified dog behavior consultant Jennifer Shryock, has been involved with dogs since a very young age. She has a Bachelors Degree in Special Education and is the mother of four children. Shryock is also the U.S. VP for Doggone Safe a non-profit dedicated to dog bite prevention and victim support. Along with her private dog behavior consulting business, Family Paws, the Shryock family has fostered over 70 dogs and many cats over the years providing ample hands-on learning opportunities. It was through fostering and becoming active in dog rescue that Jennifer saw the need for dog education specific to new and expecting families.

Frequently dogs are abandoned or re-homed due to lack of knowledge of available resources and support. Education and preparation make all the difference in the world when it comes to safe interactions between babies and dogs. Dogs & Storks® and The Dog and Baby Connection™ provides consistent and current information through qualified, licensed presenters. By addressing concerns or behavioral challenges up front, families can set proper expectations and practice new routines both well before and after baby arrives. Providing this resource is what motivated Jennifer Shryock to create the programs Dogs & Storks® and The Dog and Baby Connection™ “I want to make education available even before they know they need it!” FPPE offers ongoing support for new and expecting families with dogs! Jennifer believes by offering Dogs & Storks® and The Dog and Baby Connection™, this type of education will become as common as other parenting and childbirth classes. That is tail wagging news for dogs everywhere!
