Handling difficult dogs is an important skill set for all professional dog trainers, but in particular for those who work in sheltering. In this online course, Trish McMillan will help you to learn when you might be at risk of being bitten, and what to do when you must handle the dog anyways. Trish pioneered the use of stuffed dogs to help trainers practice their skills and learn how to keep themselves and others safe.
