905 – Denise Fenzi 1 – Saturday, January 20

Engagement, Toy and Personal Play
The emphasis in this seminar will be 1) helping dogs become comfortable in new spaces via acclimation, 2) giving dogs the freedom to ask to work and 3) asking for increasingly more of our dogs (eye contact, personal play, and finally, work) before a classic reward such as toys or food show up. The end goal of engagement training is a dog that is extremely comfortable in a working space, and who drives the handler to create interaction and work. We will also work on excellent toy and personal play: building toy drive in softer dogs or dogs that show limited interest, and building control in stronger teams. The personal play portion introduces different ways to play with a dog that does not involve food or toys. This seminar includes lecture, a PowerPoint presentation, and working time.

$200 for a working spot (10 max), $75 to audit (30 max). If the seminar is sold out, please contact Kristin at kherrera@MarinHumane.org to be put on the wait list.

905 – Denise Fenzi 2 – Sunday, January 21

Handler’s Choice for Obedience
Each dog’s stage of training or problem is discussed, and options for working through the exercise or problem are presented. The team then practices with continuous feedback from Denise. Lecture is mostly informal and limited to addressing the problems that present themselves. This seminar allows extensive working time with each team; there is no group work.

$200 for a working spot (10 max), $75 to audit (30 max). If the seminar is sold out, please contact Kristin at kherrera@MarinHumane.org to be put on the wait list.

905 - Worked Up! with Sarah Stremming

Worked Up!
Addressing arousal-related issues in sport dogs with Sarah Stremming

Saturday & Sunday, November 18-19, 2017
9am to 5pm
$300 for a working spot (10 max)
$150 for an audit spot (20 max)


Marin Humane is excited to welcome renowned trainer and behavior consultant Sarah Stremming for this innovative hands-on workshop!

This workshop is all about dogs that are over-stressed, over-aroused, over-adrenalized, and just plain over the top. Help your dog give his true performance in the ring by helping him be in a healthy state of arousal at trials. Part lecture, part hands-on, this workshop addresses everything that comes with problems of arousal: handler-biting, excessive barking, broken start lines and contacts, lack of focus, knocked bars, and more.

Sarah’s special area of interest has long been helping dog owners address behavioral concerns in their competition dogs. Reactivity, anxiety, aggression, and problems with arousal are all major concerns for many competitors, and there is nothing Sarah loves more than helping her clients overcome these issues and succeed in their chosen arena. You can read her insightful blog at thecognitivecanine.com and listen to her podcasts at Cog-Dog Radio.

$300 for a working spot (10 max), $150 for an audit spot (20 max). Working dogs should not have severe aggression or fear issues and must be comfortable being crated in a seminar environment.
