Whether you’ve been a trainer or pet sitter for years or are just starting your business, this course is for you. Earn your certificate of completion and improve your safety while handling all dogs, especially the risky ones! As a dog professional caring for others’ dogs, you know the risk.  Every now and then there’s a dog that’s a little scary; one that lunges and barks or one that gets “stuck” in a corner and growls at you. You have a dilemma: the dog needs to go for a walk or needs his medication and he’s clearly telling you he wants nothing to do with you. This course will help you understand why he’s behaving that way and give you specific strategies to befriend the dog, reduce his fear or aggression toward you and keep you safer. As your reputation grows for being able to gently handle difficult dogs, you are likely to build a client base of owners who are loyal to you. Becoming an entrusted sitter for a dog with “issues” opens up a number of opportunities for you to collaborate with the dog’s owner to improve the dog’s experience, and increase your safety.What You Can Expect To Learn: Read canine body language and understand signals of aggression and anxiety; Assess whether a dog intends to harm you or not; Learn how to keep yourself safe near aggressive or fearful dogs; Discover 10 things you should NOT do around a fearful or aggressive dog; Know 10 easy things you can do to reduce your risk of a dog bite; How to harness, handle and transport fearful and aggressive dogs; See 3 leash walking maneuvers to reduce aggression while walking a client’s dog; Watch how to quickly condition a client’s dog to trust you; Easily condition dogs to relax in your presence; Scientific principles for changing a dog’s emotion from anger to happiness; Understand how to handle multiple dogs if one or more is aggressive; and, Realize that you can skillfully handle dogs who .are fearful or aggressive
