Understanding Fear and Aggression
Presented by: Nan Arthur & Sarah Mullen
DVD- 3 disc set plus CD-Rom
What's in your dog's toolbox? What is in your toolbox when you work with him? This seminar will help you gain effective tools for helping your (or your clients') aggressive, fearful or reactive dog improve both how he feels and how he behaves.
From the dog's point of view, every act of aggression is justified, so it is important to understand how to recognize potential problems before a dog puts aggression into his toolbox. If he already has the aggression tool in there, you will need to help him stock his toolbox with better tools to get him into his comfort zone without the need for aggression.
In this seminar, we will discuss techniques to help our dogs achieve comfort and safety without using that aggression tool, including video from case studies with wild species as well as dogs to illustrate the techniques being presented. It is important to know how to manage and prevent aggressive and fearful behavior, but beyond that, we will suggest approaches to changing the motivations behind those behaviors; helping dogs to feel better in the world, as well as giving them better tools in their toolboxes for those times when they find themselves outside their comfort zones.
