Establishing good relationships with veterinarians is a key component to any successful behavior consulting or training business. One of the best ways to do that is to demonstrate to the veterinary staff how your skills and knowledge can directly help them, their clients and patients. In this BEN Pro Member Webinar we’ll discuss SIX low-stress handling techniques you can demonstrate to local veterinary practices that will make their patients easier to handle and be less stressful and safer for their staff. Chances are, you probably already know many of these skills or have used these tools, you just haven’t applied them to the context of lowering stress in the veterinary hospital and making dogs easier to handle. We are focusing on dogs in this webinar – but some of the six skills can also be applied to cats. In addition, by demonstrating these strategies to veterinarians you can also establish yourself as the “go to” resource when veterinarians need to refer difficult to handle patients for in-home training so the pets can better tolerate body handling and mild restraint. We’ll also discuss how to promote these services to your local veterinary community and give you a template for a letter of introduction you can use to market your in-service demonstration. This webinar series is a perfect example of using what you already know (and a little bit more that you’ll learn!) to promote your business and establish a new niche for yourself. View now the replay of this unique webinar course. The six skills we’ll be discussing are: How and when to use a Calming Cap How to accustom dogs to muzzles so they essentially muzzle themselves Using a towel to wrap and restrain a small dog (or cat) Using a head collar to control the dog’s head Target training Catching and reinforcing calm behaviors in the veterinary practice This course has been approved for the following CEU credits; CPDT-KA:1
