JOIN OBi Fox FOR A TRAINING AND PROBLEM SOLVING FUN DAY!
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.

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
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.
