The Sensible And Non-threatening Education (S.A.N.E.) workshop will present effective, kind, tools and techniques which influence an animal’s ability to cope with situations they perceive as stressful. The goal is to reduce arousal and reactivity, promote stress free handling, increase trust of people, build confidence and ultimately improve an animal’s bond with you. The techniques also increase the chances of finding, and staying in that forever home for rescued, fostered or shelter dogs.
Instructor Kathy Cascade combines her professional training in physical therapy, along with her many years of helping numerous dogs by instructing others via S.A.N.E. Solutions concepts, and Tellington Touch Techniques (a way of working with animals which induces a state of relaxation and increased body awareness-beneficial to those on both sides of the leash).
This is designed as a small, hands- on workshop, limited to eight dogs and twelve people. This workshop is appropriate for those who are fostering dogs awaiting adoption, people who work or volunteer with dogs, or people who want to improve their relationship with their dog and have tried other methods and have not yet achieved the desired relationship.
The event is held at the Doing Right By Rescues Zen-like tutoring facility surrounded by acres of beautiful protected woodlands. Salad bar type luncheon is included. Please register very early to ensure your spot at this limited engagement workshop-you’ll leave with concepts and techniques you can call upon for years to come.
