The purpose of this course is to offer training options in addition to BAT and LAT for resolving reactive and aggressive dog issues. The course begins by looking at how professionals structure training to control reactivity in breeds whose working purpose is to react to certain stimulus. There is a review of different training tools which are used to work with reactivity and training. Recommendation on tools to use and not to use is included. Since treats are often a tool used with this kind of training, a look at treat-training failure can help trainers learn to solve treat related problems. This can allow for better relationships which work towards reform. Case studies help present techniques for solving reactivity and aggression issues and include examples of modification of some of the techniques to fit the needs for training a specific dog issue. Several case studies are presented to offer a variety of approaches for resolving reactivity and aggression problems. There are ten sections which range between 80 and 180 minutes. Ten quizzes and a final exam must be passed to earn CEUs or a Certificate of Completion.
