Constructional Aggression Treatment C.A.T. For Dogs 

Presented by: Jesus Rosales-Ruiz & Kellie Snider

DVD- 6 disc set

The Constructional Aggression Treatment (C.A.T.), is back and better than ever. The third edition DVD set is presented here with new video, fine-tuned and expanded procedures, and a document CD included. As a result of the first DVD set, professional and novice trainers around the world (nine countries and counting) are using the C.A.T. procedure and changing dogs' lives and the lives of the people who care about them.

Research done by University of North Texas associate professor Jesus Rosales-Ruiz, Ph.D. with researcher Kellie Snider, M.S. demonstrates that classical treatments for aggression have us barking up the wrong tree. C.A.T. is a humane improvement over desensitization, counter conditioning and distraction procedures. C.A.T. is an operant approach to treating aggression, not in a laboratory, but in the real world where aggression occurs. C.A.T. typically produces long-lasting results in far less time than any positive treatment available until now, and without the undesirable side-effects that are common with punishment procedures. This new presentation addresses issues of generalization and stimulus control in greater detail than in the original DVD set, giving viewers more information about how to maintain and expand the results of the treatment. 

C.A.T. is a functional approach to changing aggressive behavior. It acknowledges that the dog is already receiving reinforcement for aggression and sets up a procedure in which the same reinforcer that currently supports the aggression is arranged to follow only desirable, safe behaviors. As the procedure progresses, the ultimate outcome is a once-aggressive dog that is now friendly.
