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.

‘Cracking Behaviour’,  a presentation by Tony Cruse

Based on over 1000 behaviour consultations, Tony Cruse looks at what makes dogs tick and focuses on the common problems that pet dogs present.

Clearly and concisely, using Keynote, Tony looks at many of the usual items, such as jumping up, chewing and other common issues. Tony also looks at Canine aggression …what is it and why it occurs. 

Based on science but made easy, Tony will give you his three-point plan which he uses when he addresses problem dog behaviour cases: everything from barking to biting.

Tony is on the behaviour advisory panel at Your Dog Magazine and will share some of the letters he has dealt with and allow you to consider how you’d answer them. 

Tony Cruse runs Tc Dog Training and has complete over a 1000 behaviour consultations and runs training classes.

An Insight into Creative Classes

‘An Insight into Creative Classes’ webinar looks at how trainers can keep their classes fresh and offer something different to their clients.

From how the dog training tasks are delivered to adding puzzles for the humans to solve.  The webinar covers in-person as well as online Creative Class ideas. The aim is to keep new clients coming back for more by offering classes with a twist. 

Creative Classes also help energise trainers who may feel stuck when it comes to thinking up new ideas for clients that have been with them for a long time.

Common Behaviour Problems in Pet Dogs:
Separation Anxiety. Dog/Dog Reactivity (leash frustration). Resource Guarding.
A Discussion on Contributing Factors using Case Studies

Following over 15 years of working with behaviour cases, Sue McCabe discusses the ‘ingredients’ she regularly sees which contribute towards behaviour challenges in pet dogs.

By recognising these common denominators early on, it may be possible to guide clients towards making better choices for their dogs which result in happier dogs and owners in the longer term.

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.
