Multiple Pet Seminars to be Offered at Cold Nose Companions Dog Training

Cold Nose Companions Dog Training is bringing Ken McCort to speak on two topics of great interest to pet guardians and professionals alike.

Arousal in Dogs – From Brain to Train is Ken’s topic on Saturday, October 22, 2016. Ken will discuss why some dogs go “over-the- top” and act out in ways that are frustrating to guardians and/or dangerous to the dog or others? Arousal is based in the dog’s neurobiology and, once triggered, causes the dog to react reflexively. How do you prevent arousal behaviors, or arrest them once triggered? In this seminar, Ken answers those questions; and addresses strategies and exercises to change the behavior.

Multiple Pet Households – How to Make Them Work will be the topic for Sunday, October 23, 2016. Americans love our pets. Most households have more than one. Pets are a source of great joy in our homes and lives. But if two or more of your pets are having trouble getting along, it can be a nightmare. Ken McCort is well-versed in these challenges, with more than 20 pets of seven different species. This seminar will cover introducing new pets to your home, strategies to set everyone up for success, inter-species interactions, early identification and intervention of problems, and what to do when relationships are not working out.

Ken McCort owns and operates Four Paws animal behavior services in Doylestown, Ohio. In his profession, Ken works with animals with behavioral concerns. He has been training animals full time since 1986 and currently works with dogs, cats, birds and a few other species.

Ken has been going to Japan since 2004 and to a few other countries internationally to teach people how to better understand animal behavior and training with a variety of species.

Both seminars are suitable for pet owners, as well as professionals. The seminars will be held each day from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. Cost is $175 per day or $300 for both days.
