The​ ​Play​ ​Way​ is Amy Cook’s method of helping shy and fearful dogs overcome these issues to live a happier, less-stressed life. Rather than focusing on food, as many do when working with these dogs, Amy has established a more nuanced rehabilitation process that revolves around personal, social play. She believes play is a much more reliable method of judging a dog’s true behavioral thresholds, while being equally effective at supporting a dog to make emotional change. Play is both an indicator of stress and an intervention for stress! In this seminar you will learn: How to identify stress in dogs About threshold management How to read a dog so you know what to do when About relaxed play, and its important role in the rehabilitation of stress & anxiety Personal play, food or toys: which one should you use and when? How to help a dog "Look and Dismiss" and take challenges in stride.
