Fearful, aggressive, reactive, unruly, or just too rambunctious – does this describe your dog?
You may know many techniques for dealing with your reactive or aggressive dog, but with many dogs, to get the results you want you need a clear step-by-step plan. First you need to realize that every interaction is a training session, so what you do outside of official sessions may undermine your progress. Second, for fast and enduring results it’s often essential to improve the dog’s impulse and emotional control. Third, your training will require good technique and an integrative approach and should focus on creating a dog who is happy, focused, and calm.
In this live-recorded 3-hour seminar Dr. Sophia Yin – veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and author – presents a comprehensive plan for helping fearful, aggressive or reactive dogs overcome their behavioral problems. You’ll see a number of different desensitization and counterconditioning techniques and learn when to use each one. You’ll see how to identify all sources of fear and impulsivity, and understand how these factors hinder progress. And due to the stepwise global nature, you’ll see dogs improving faster than you ever thought they could!
