Many owners, foster parents, and rescue workers worry about fear, reactivity, and aggression problems in their dogs—and rightly so. Now you can learn to recognize, understand, and address the issues before they become a problem.
In this fun and fascinating two-day seminar with demonstrations, taught by veterinarian, applied animal behaviorist, and international speaker Dr. Sophia Yin, you’ll learn the science behind how all dogs think and learn, how to recognize early signs of brewing behavior problems, the types of play interactions that can cause friendly dogs to become reactive to others and the basic tried and true approaches to fixing these issues permanently. You’ll also see Dr. Yin’s step-by-step program for training leadership in humans and focus and impulse control in dogs. This version of the learn to earn program provides the quickest way to bond with a dog, teach impulse control, and help the dog look to you for guidance even in the unfamiliar environment or scary situation. Once she lays the foundation skills and knowledge she delves deeper. She uncovers methods for measuring handler technique and dog response, discusses whether genetics has a role, and presents a holistic approach to dealing with fearful, reactive and aggressive dogs.
Author of numerous books (including Perfect Puppy in 7 Days and Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats) and creator of her own version of the “Learn to Earn” training system, Dr. Yin has applied her extensive scientific training and knowledge to developing practical and effective animal training methods.
