Description

Hi there,

Would you like to improve the relationship with your dog? Or are you a dog professional, a vet, or working in the animal industry, and would like to know more about how human behaviour, thoughts and emotions impact our dogs and influence their behaviour, and how you can support the dog owner during your service?

If yes, then attending the 2-day “Bravery Workshop” would bring great value to your life. The goal of the workshop is that by the end of the 2 days you will have inner resources that you can draw upon for the rest of your life. This isn’t a “traditional” dog-training course. This revolutionary course focuses on “the end of the lead” (aka the dog owner) and less on the dog.

So what will "THE BRAVERY WORKSHOP" cover?

This 2-day workshop is designed for dog owners, dog trainers, vets, and other people working in the animal industry, who want to learn more about how to troubleshoot common problems with the human at the end of the lead.

Topics covered in the workshop:

  • You will learn about the evolution, the keystones and the practical implications of "THE PACT MODEL", which is the theoretical foundation of the workshop and has been especially designed for the human at the end of the lead

  • You will learn about unhelpful behaviours and thought processes that frequently interfere and stop the human-dog couple from having a good relationship

  • You will practice grounding and self-soothing strategies, to set yourself up for success in your training and difficult life circumstances in general

  • You will learn how to cultivate “emotional flexibility” that helps you create a sense of "BRAVERY" and resilience in your every day life

  • You will learn to read human stress signals, and the best strategies that can help humans calm down the quickest
without passing their stress onto their dog

  • You will learn about the concept of “emotional transmissions” that we pass onto our dogs, often without knowing or being aware of them

  • You will be shown strategies how to increase your confidence and self-esteem whilst interacting with your dog

  • The workshop will be hands on and it is designed to address common problems that dog owners face in everyday life

You don’t need to have any prerequisites to attend this course, the only thing you need is an open mind that is curious and would like to grow. ;)

Who is hosting this workshop?

My name is Birdy O’Sheedy, I’m a clinical psychologist, coach and professional dog nerd, and have a true passion for helping dog owners. I’m a qualified dog trainer, but mainly work with the human at the end of the leash as this is what is often needed the most. You see, I’ve struggled with my dog Luna too. To be honest, we had some very difficult times. We had to go through a lengthy behaviour modification program, and let’s face it, it wasn't always an easy ride. I was very lucky as I had access to amazing dog trainers who always had my back, and never gave up on us. After a while I realized that the behaviour modification program was not just addressing the dog… it was mainly addressing me. And despite realizing this, I still struggled. I love a good challenge, so I put my “professional hat” on and researched tools that could help my dog and me better. So over time I discovered certain psychological techniques that helped to speed up training, which proved to be very effective as they are evidence-based and stem from well-researched psychological interventions. As I want to pass on my knowledge that I've gained from this experience, I founded Paws In Life Coaching in addition to my psychology practice Pause In Life Psychology. My mission is to help other dog owners enjoy their relationship with their dog more and show professionals how they can set the dog owner up for success, and not just focus on the dog.

I'm a big fan of evidence-based methods and have trained globally in quite a few methods as a clinical psychologist, and love attending workshops about anything dog related.

If you have questions, please contact me through my webpage or through Eventbrite.

General information about the workshop:

  • Please note that you don't need to bring your dog along for this workshop. Humans only. :)

  • The event will be fully catered for but if you have strict dietary requirements (e.g. celiac, vegan), please bring your own food, though there will be vegetarian options. It might be handy to have your own water bottle though.

  • Please bring a dog leash (I know this might not make sense, as there won’t be any dogs… but we will need it anyway. You’ll just have to wait and see! :)

  • Please bring whatever you need to be comfy. The workshop will be held at Pet Resorts Australia Dural in their big outdoor training shed. So wear comfy clothes, bring sun protection, and feel free to bring your camping chair and your favourite mug to be extra comfy.

  • Pens and learning material will be provided.

  • If you have been to a BRAVERY workshop in the past, please come along, as this year’s concept is very different to last year’s workshop.

  • Please note that registration will start at 8:30am on Saturday and the workshop will begin at 9am sharp on both days. We are aiming to finish on both days around 4:30pm.

  • If you aren’t from the area, I highly recommend checking out Ingenia Sydney Hills cabins, which is very close by car to the training facility.

  • If you want to board your dog, please call Pet Resorts Australia Dural 02 9651 1747 and book your dog in, and our training facility is on the same grounds as their boarding kennel. Pet Resorts have an outstanding reputation and hence boarding spaces are limited and subject to availability.

Also check us out on Facebook to stay up to date and get the latest news!

We would love to see you and your friends there. So make sure to book today, as there are limited spots available!

Have a great day,

Birdy
