Your S.O.C.I.A.L. Puppy (Friday 26th July, 7.30-9.30pm)
It’s important puppies in our community have access immediately to thoughtful, safe classes and not just wait “until the next puppy class.” In this open attendance seminar Terry will outline the advantages and implications from her Legacy Canine class structure which uses the acronym S.O.C.I.A.L. as well as touching on other proactive puppy programmes in the USA such as the American Kennel Club’s S.T.A.R. puppy programme for good early Canine Good Citizen development.

Coaching People To Train Their Dogs (Saturday 27th July, 9-5pm)
Terry Ryan has been at the forefront of pet dog training and the Canine Good Citizen movement since its inception in the USA. This FULL DAY of lectures, workshops and interactive material is THE event to attend for
all dog training instructors, whether involved with pet, competition or other dog sport classes and is based on Terry’s book of the same name. Not only for newer trainers it is also great for those more experienced
as a forum for exchanging ideas, combating instructor burnout or just seeing what’s new or different. A succinct version of the course usually presented over 10 days as a live-in option.
Along with Life Beyond Block Heeling - a practically demonstrated session all about training exercises made fun. Selections from thirty of more (as yet) unpublished games. Pre-screened dogs will be invited to demonstrate the games and add a practical element to an already un-miss able day.
(Cost CGC Assessor $100, NZKC member $130, Non-member $150)
Venue - NZKC Exhibition Centre, Porirua
The CGC Approach-International Perspectives. (Sunday 28th July 9-5pm)
Terry Ryan was at the inception and developmental stages of both the Japanese and Australian Canine Good Citizen programs. Using experienced gained from teaching in the UK and working with the USA program, she helped craft exercises specifically for the individual countries. Japan has crafted training classes with the CGC as the specific goal. In December Terry was invited to celebrate the 20th year anniversary of the Japanese program. Their CGC Passport allows dogs into a wide variety of hotels, restaurants and other public places banned to uncertified dogs. Over the years, Terry has formulated over 25 classroom games to teach the basic good citizen skills and attitudes to dogs and their people.
Along with Continuing Education For Pet Dogs - ideas for continuing education for pet dogs following on from Pet Dog Manners classes who do not want to progress to competitive classes. New skills and fluency exercises for basics are shown. Basics are chained together for practical real-life applications. The CE “orbits” menu of classes and strategies for teaching more advanced students.
Along with What Is That Dog Saying? - using slides and videos this presentation portrays the world from a dog’s point of view. How dogs process information and how their body language serves to communicate with others is key to our mutual understanding. This seminar will help you detect early warning signs of stress in common pet dog situations and improve your observation skills as an assessor or instructor. Learn to evaluate and manage a dog’s well being in a variety of situations that commonly present through pet dogs in class.
(Cost: $30 CGC Assessors and designated CGC Club delegate. Other applicants regular rate $130 - limited spaces may be available)
