Discussion Starter #1
I volunteer with a all breed rescue in Bryan/College Station, TX and I am posting to invite you to our third annual behavior seminar in College Station, TX on Saturday, February 28th, 2009. This year's seminar is called "Fostering Success: Overcoming the Challenges of Rescue Dogs". We are thrilled to have talented behavior consultant and aggression specialist, Lee Mannix, back again.

Besides being a very entertaining speaker, Lee is an amazing rescue consultant. Since we began working with him in 2004, our whole program has improved. He completely changed the way we train and evaluate our dogs, the way we structure our foster program, and even the way we approach the animal-surrendering process with our clients.

This year, we have worked with Lee to design a full-day seminar for shelter and rescue workers, trainers, and other rescue professionals. After this workshop, you will not only be better equipped to rehabilitate dogs in your own program, but to help families who are having problems with their dog so that it never ends up in rescue.

He will discuss temperament testing, explore problematic/abnormal/psychogenic behaviors (from separation anxiety and insecurity to pica and polydypsia), explain the difference between training problems and behavior problems, lead a discussion and question/answer session about aggressive behavior, and more!

If you are interested in attending, we encourage you to register soon: tickets are going fast! The registration fee is $75 at the door (if tickets remain), but we want this to be affordable to rescues of any budget, so we are offering a $55 pre-registration rate if you register now, as well as an additional $10 discount (per ticket!) to organizations that send at least 3 people (or to college/veterinary students with a valid student ID). The profits from this event will benefit Impact Animal Foundation and will go directly to supporting our rescue and outreach efforts in the Brazos Valley.

I wish I could go - I'm starting to view Wally as a rescue (he basically was, though not from the traditional abandoned to a shelter variety), I would love to get these fears/insecurities out of him (and learning which is which and where I'm coming up short in traning).
