Just a quick announcement: I hope you can join me and Drs Suzanne Hetts and Michele Wan for the first “CAAB Chat” webinar, next Tuesday January 14th at 6 pm Eastern Time, 5 Central and 4 Mountain. (Alert: I posted the wrong times initially! Sorry!) This is the first in a series of free webinars that present several Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists discussing a specific issue related to behavior and training. Dr. Hetts brainstormed the idea (yeah!!!), and here’s what she’s written by way of introduction:
Ever wished you could be a fly on the wall when behaviorists get together and talk shop? Wonder what they think of the latest research, the most current behavior modification or training protocol, or how they educate clients who’ve been exposed to too much behavior nonsense on the web and on TV?
Have you been frustrated by hearing conflicting information about the “why’s” of pet behavior or the best protocols for problem resolution, and put off by rigid “dos” and “don’ts” that sometimes seem illogical?
Would you like to hear interpretations of the latest research so you can be aware of any design or statistical flaws, so you know what the findings might mean for you and what you do daily?
Do you enjoy well moderated panel discussions at conferences where you are treated to hearing different points of views expressed rationally, with participants being polite and respecting each other’s view points?
Your “wish list” now exists!
We’re aiming for a free webinar (free if one listens live, a small fee if you want a recorded version) about every month or so. Each month will have a different group of experts to talk about a different issues. On Tuesday January 14th our discussion is titled: Questions, Controversies and Considerations in Canine Visual Communication.
I hope you can join us, I think it will be great fun!
