ACE Three Rs Workshop with Sarah Fisher
Animal Centred Education (ACE) is an integrated approach to animal education and management. It incorporates some of the techniques that were developed at Tilley Farm and those inspired by other professionals working in the world of animal education, wellbeing and welfare. The main focus of this workshop will be on observations and Free Work to help dogs reset, rebalance and release, and will include tips and techniques to help further the education of the attending dogs at a pace to suit them.
Free Work has been inspired by a bright and enthusiastic young bull breed named Henry; it is a simple, structured method of educating and supporting dogs of all ages providing a safe and rewarding foundation on which further learning and handling can be built.
Many dogs struggle when in novel situations and many cannot tolerate contact (even from familiar people) when aroused, worried, or in new or exciting environments. Free Work has provided an invaluable stepping stone towards ground work exercises on a line or lead and gentle body contact, including TTouch, for dogs that are sensitive to touch. Placement of treats on varying heights enables you to help the dog organise his own body more efficiently and work at a pace to suit him, before other learning exercises are introduced.
Free Work is now being successfully used by shelter staff, trainers and behaviourists, TTouch Practitioners, groomers, therapists, and canine guardians to support the animals in their care.
Sarah Fisher is a canine and equine behaviour advisor. She has worked with animals for over twenty years and incorporates some of the elements of the Tellington TTouch method in her work. She is experienced with a wide range of breed types and teaches staff workshops for many of the UK’s animal welfare organisations including Battersea. She has also worked in Europe teaching staff workshops for shelters including SPCA Malta and GIA (Romania) and has taught workshops and clinics for dog trainers and behaviourists in Holland, Greece, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, South Africa, Ireland, Romania and Poland.
Sarah gives presentations on a variety of topics at dog training and behaviour seminars in the UK and abroad, and is a regular speaker at the annual Dog Behaviour Conference. She also conducts behaviour assessments for private clients and animal welfare organisations.
Sarah is a published author and has participated in numerous television and radio programmes over the years including the recent Nightmare Pets SOS for BBC1. She runs courses under the name Animal Centred Education (ACE) for trainers, groomers, veterinary nurses, physiotherapists and animal behaviour counsellors who wish to broaden their expertise by learning detailed observations combined with Free Work, and techniques inspired by other professionals working in the world of animal welfare and behaviour.
