SEMINAR: Aggressive Dogs

In this two-hour presentation, we will discuss what aggression / fear / anxiety / reactivity looks like and what we can do about it.

 

We will discuss why it occurs, how it manifests itself, and how we can reduce or eliminate it, including:

 

- What are the earliest signs?
- What should you do when the dog growls at you?
- What is the difference between a play growl and an aggressive growl?
- What to do with a dog that has bitten?
- How do you break up a dog fight?

We will then look at the types of cases that may be more likely to have a successful outcome, and which ones that may be more challenging, and go through:

– The behaviour modification process
– Managing the bite risk
– Goal setting
– Involving the veterinarian and the veterinary behaviourist
– Decisions about re-homing and euthanasia

No dogs.

What Clients Are Saying:

Hi Bev – I thought I’d let you know that Cody’s behaviour has been absolutely stellar since we graduated Foundations. We’ve been doing quite a bit of off leash walking, and he is suddenly paying so much more attention, coming when he is called – even if he’s playing with other dogs – I can hardly believe it! Thanks again for all your help. Looking forward to seeing more info on Advanced Clicker and the other course you mentioned (good neighbor?) in October.

To Everyone at Cowichan Canine: Cyrus & I have just finished the Foundation program and passed with Honours - phew! Along the way we were fortunate to sample several of the other courses that you offer, including private lessons for my other dog, Ricco. It was a real treat to be able to do that . I learned soooo much about my dogs; from how they react to each other, how to understand their body language, to be more patient and even what treats to provide for success. I was very impressed from the start with your on-line registration, the class sizes, the ability to work at our own pace, and even the individual water bowls. And on top of all that, each instructor offers a unique view of training so that you can get different perspectives. And of course, Andrea keeps the ship running smoothly. The time the three of us have spent with you has definitely been a worthwhile Thank you from Sherie, Ricco & Cyrus.
