OBi Fox will give us a short presentation on her knowledge and research about  a dog’s personal space and innate motor response.  The rest of the day we will spend learning how to apply this concept in training/handling and problem solving.  
Does your dog have a personal space?  How large is it?   How does it affect his behavior and training?? Are you messing him up
with what you’re doing?   The knowledge OBi shares with you will change the way you look at training and handling your dog. DATE:

ABOUT OBi FOX:   For 30 years, OBi has been a dog trainer, dog behavior consultant and researcher with an interest in the fight/flight/freeze phenomenon as it applies to dogs. Sometimes controversial, and always enlightening, her work on the role motor system plays in behavior draws from the fields of animal science, classical ethology, behaviorism, radical behaviorism (ABA) and recent findings in the neurophysiology of movement. She was acknowledged for her contribution of the correlations between the classical concepts of fixed action patterns and flight zones with the current findings in a 10-year overview paper published in The Journal of Neuropsychology in 2006. She lives in Colorado Springs, CO.

About Diane

Diane was one of the first trainers to put into print in her first book (Beyond Basic Dog Training 1st edition Howell Book House l986) that dogs could think and solve problems. She continues to believe that dogs learn by trial and error and that good training necessitates allowing a dog " the right to be wrong" so he can learn from his mistakes.

Diane's style of working with dogs and people encourages both to let go of the fear of making mistakes and embrace learning. "When a dog figures something out" she says, "he will remember it forever." "I never met a dog that needed to practice getting into the garbage so he wouldn't forget it!"

By cleverly teaching in a relaxed atmosphere where "mistakes are good," dogs and humans learn by making decisions that are either rewarded or ignored. The end result are students (canine and human) that truly understand what they are doing and are happy, comfortable and enthusiastic about performing.
