Auditors are invited to observe and learn about topics under discussion between the mentor and full mentees, and their questions will be answered if time allows. Auditors do not attend the weekly live chats. Auditors will participate in mentor lectures, handouts and case review of full mentees' work if desired. Auditors can read along in the online forum and ask questions about ongoing conversations. Their questions will be answered by the mentor as time allows. In some cases, online meetings will be recorded and made available for auditors to watch after they have happened. Auditors cannot present their own cases or attend the weekly in-person video meeting. FULL COURSE TO BE AUDITED: •Are you currently taking aggression cases or plan to start taking aggression cases? •Are you having a difficult time finding someone in your area to mentor with that has experience in aggression cases? •Do you find yourself "second guessing" certain behavior modification protocols you are currently using? •Are you interested in adding more to your behavior change toolkit for modifying aggressive behaviors? •Do you want to learn more about maximizing safety for both you and your clients and reducing potential for liability? While there are many wonderful resources available on managing and modifying aggression in dogs, it can often be difficult to find someone who has experience in aggression cases to bounce ideas off of and offer the personalized attention of a mentorship. In this eight week mentorship, Mike will be available as your personal mentor for aggression cases. Each participant receives their own personal chat panel through Schoology, a digital classroom that connects you to Michael where you can upload and share your videos, photos, and cases, and ask any questions you might have regarding aggression in dogs. Questions regarding behavior modification, client coaching, techniques, tools, protocols, safety/management recommendations, and anything else you wish to discuss about aggression are all welcomed. Included in this mentorship will be weekly, roundtable style, live group sessions, in a relaxed atmosphere where we will dive deep into the topic of dog aggression, discuss cases, and view video of behavior modification in action!
