Dogs struggling with aggression habitually make poor, fast-twitch decisions about their behavior when confronted with a threatening or scary stimulus. The consequences of this are too often a bite incident and then surrender to a shelter or even euthanasia for a dog. This live, two hour webinar will examine how to transform the unfortunately familiar scenario of rehoming or euthanasia by incorporating insights from the cutting-edge research being done on canine cognition. It will focus on the cognitive foundations of aggression in dogs; how changing a dog's thinking patterns can help them find more appropriate ways of responding to triggers; and examine some practical strategies for helping your own (or your clients' dogs) become slow, non-aroused thinkers. While the focus of the webinar is canine aggression, a slow thinking program can help many different behavior issues and is a wonderful cognitive habit for all dogs to develop. The webinar will feature real time, hands on training segments as well as instructions for all the featured games. We will have a live, interactive question and answer period, a downloadable pdf of all slides and a coupon offering all registered attendees a 15% discount on tuition for the four-week online course that I will be offering in the fall on this same topic. After the live session, the webinar will be available for viewing on demand for six months.
