Rachel Spencer

The two types of publicity every pet professional needs

In this session you will learn how to raise the profile of your pet business in two ways.

The first is by creating your own media and how to ensure you have your own newspaper, magazine, tv or radio station where potential clients can learn more about you.

The second is by being published on other people’s media, from mainstream newspapers and magazines to blogs, podcasts and other channels so pet owners can discover you and potentially become customers.

Hannah Capon

Puppy Exercise – The Dos and the The Don’ts 

Exercise for puppies – a hotly debated topic which plays a massive role in the proper development of growing joints and the prevention of early degenerative joint changes.

What is appropriate? What’s not?

Dr. Hannah Capon, MA Vet MB MRCVS, founder of Canine Arthritis Management, will delve into this topic and outline the dos and don’ts of puppy exercise, exploring the importance of appropriate activities – and environment – to avoid damage to the growth plates and developing joints as puppies grow to adulthood.

About Hannah

Hannah Capon, MA Vet MB MRCVS, awarded the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Impact Award 2020, winner of the 2019 CEVA Welfare Awards Vet of the Year, and Vet Trust Vet Personality of the Year 2019, and finalist in the 2019 Petplan Vet of the Year, is a first opinion veterinary surgeon in the UK with over 18 years of experience.

Hannah is a Galen Myotherapist and is currently undertaking the Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner programme through the University of Tennessee.

She is recognised and respected for her tireless work on Canine Arthritis Management (CAM), founded in 2016, which is an online education and support service for owners of arthritic dogs and canine and veterinary professionals.

From its start as a simple Facebook page promoting earlier identification and evidence-based multimodal management, CAM has now become a flourishing, multiplatform service run by a team of veterinary professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to help owners.

Hannah’s passion for changing the landscape of canine osteoarthritis has recently led to the development of CAM’s first online educational course for canine professionals, with the aim of transforming the disease identification and management process by empowering the entire community of canine professionals across all disciplines.

Adam Delderfield
Apdt 01440

Adam Delderfield is an award wining dog trainer from Milton Keynes who specialises in Puppy Development.

He believes that prevention is easier that cure and is always trying to work out how he can get more information out to new puppy owners to make life as easy as possible. His background in Banking and incident management gives him a unique skill set and ability to problem solve under high pressure.

Rather than fixing issues as they arise, he has spent years designing, creating, and moulding a program that deals with issues before they even happen.

In 2014, when he started this journey, he realised what the problem was…..
It took him back to school days sitting in classes thinking ‘when am I ever going to use this information!?’

Children need to be taught everything because we don’t know what they are going to be when they are adults…But not puppies, we know what they are going to be…Family Pets. If we know what they are going to be when they’re adults, we know what is required from a family pet and we know, through scientific study, exactly what issues will occur over every stage of a puppies life. Then we can start to build a program that will ensure puppies turn into happy, huggable, harmless adult dogs.

From there, the sky is the limit!

Traditional puppy classes are a thing of the past. The days of turning up to a village hall and doing sit stays for an hour are long gone. But what should the future of puppy training look like? How do we structure classes for the modern day? Should we structure puppy classes at all or should we let them be more fluid.

Animal behaviour is the study of 1. So how can you possibly create a 6 week course that will get results every time when 6 completely different puppies are going to be there.
All of this and more is what you will learn.

Join Adam Delderfield for an in depth look at the way puppy classes are run and how we can change the world of puppy development forever.

Paddy Driscoll Webinar

Paddy Driscoll MSc
APDT 00246

Running a Gnasher Club – the Teamwork Training experience

The webinar looks at running a “Gnasher Club”. A support group for owners of “reactive” dogs. It examines the Teamwork Training experience – how it started, and how it has evolved. How it works (and where it doesn’t). The benefits – and the potential pitfalls –  of running such groups.

Paddy established her business Teamwork Training back in 1996, when it was something of a novelty for anyone to try and make a living from helping owners with their dog’s behaviour or training. Having spent her early years hobby training with her own dogs and instructing at clubs, gaining a  degree in politics and International relations along the way, with a professional career in academic librarianship, she had the opportunity to learn important management, learning and training (people) skills, as well giving her early access to what turned out to be a revolutionary new source of education and enlightenment – the Internet.

Between then and now she has innovated and developed ideas in training and behaviour – introducing puppy classes to a dog training world in the UK that believed classes should start at 6 months, offering the first clicker training workshops and classes in the UK and most recently developing on the new idea from the USA of establishing groups specifically aimed at “reactive” dogs. The Gnasher Club.

Having always been something of a course junkie, that culminated in studying and gaining an MSc (with Distinction) in Clinical Animal Behaviour at Lincoln University under the great teaching of Daniel Mills and Helen Zulch.
