Description

The Play Way is Amy Cook’s method of helping shy and fearful dogs, whether pets or performance dogs, overcome behavioral issues to live a happier, less-stressed life. Rather than focusing on food and classical/counter conditioning, Amy has established a more nuanced process that revolves around play. She believes play is a 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 resolving 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
