An enlightening seminar presented by Daniel Shaw and Hannah Molloy
In the heart of our commitment to canine education, Dog & Bone recently partnered with Dogology Dogs to host a groundbreaking seminar on canine frustration. Over two informative days, canine behaviourists Hannah Molloy and Daniel Shaw shared their extensive knowledge on the topic, creating an in-person event that proved to be both enlightening and engaging.
Around 40 attendees attended the event at Haynes Village Hall in Bedfordshire and enjoyed healthy discussions, interactive learning, and the opportunity for plenty of questions and answers. The atmosphere was charged with enthusiasm as dog enthusiasts, trainers, and professionals gathered to delve into the intricate world of canine frustration.
The Dynamic Duo: Hannah Molloy and Daniel Shaw
The dynamic duo of canine behaviourists, Hannah Molloy and Daniel Shaw, brought a perfect blend of expertise and charisma to the seminar. Daniel, with his penchant for delving into the geeky intricacies of neuroscience, provided a deep dive into the physiological aspects of frustration. His insights into the neural pathways and mechanisms behind canine frustration left the audience in awe.
Hannah then expertly translated the science into practical and relevant information for understanding dog behaviour. Together their ability to bridge the gap between scientific theory and real-life scenarios made the complex topic accessible and applicable for dog owners, trainers, and enthusiasts alike.
The Wheel of Frustration
A highlight of the seminar was the unveiling of their "Wheel of Frustration". This innovative tool serves as a practical guide to identify the various manifestations of frustration in dogs and offers effective strategies for resolution. Attendees were able to witness the wheel in action with live demonstrations featuring four dogs, providing valuable insights and tangible examples for better understanding.
One of the unique aspects of the seminar was the opportunity for hands-on learning. Participants had the chance to observe dogs exhibiting signs of frustration, allowing them to apply the knowledge gained from the presentations directly. This interactive element added a layer of practicality to the theoretical discussions, enhancing the overall learning experience.
Networking and Building Connections
Beyond the wealth of knowledge gained, the seminar provided an excellent platform for networking and building connections within the canine community. Attendees shared their experiences, exchanged tips, and formed new friendships, creating a supportive network that extends beyond the seminar itself. There was a strong feeling of relief at being back to in-person seminars since the Covid Pandemic.
The Frustration in Dogs Seminar proved to be a resounding success. Thanks to the expertise of Hannah Molloy and Daniel Shaw, participants left with a deeper understanding of canine frustration, armed with practical tools to enhance the well-being of dogs and skills to educate dog owners.
