It’s a common inquiry; one centered around the concern that a dog is aggressive during veterinary, grooming, and general handling procedures. By the time a concerned caregiver reaches out, the puppy or dog has learned aggression is the most effective means to make the procedure stop. Not only is husbandry care stressful for the dog, but for the owner and care staff. Perhaps the dog owner wasn’t aware of services that focused on positive management and handling. Maybe the dog walker or pet sitter wasn’t educated about how dogs communicate, therefore missing subtle cues that their canine client was struggling when equipment was presented for a walk. Perhaps the veterinary or grooming professional wasn’t aware that their client sought the help of a trainer that advocated the use of aversive techniques during classes. This webinar will focus on common blurred lines that professionals navigate daily, and tips for how to showcase and implement collaboration for high ethical standards.
