Online class for Behavior Modification designed specifically for performance dogs with ring stress due to anxiety from reactivity in the competition environment. Stressing down and stressing up, unable to focus, out of control, can't listen to cues and is a safety concern. I instruct how to identify and decode triggers while implementing strategies to reduce physiological response in order to gain engagement and to improve performance. Trainers will learn how to manage thresholds in the competition environment while using differential reinforcement protocols. I help trainers understand what they are doing to perpetuate this behavior and the replacement behaviors they have to employ to help their dogs succeed
