    Are You Biting Off More Than You Can Chew? Are You Really Ready to Work With Aggression Cases?

    with Pamela Dennison

    CEU's

    PPAB 1, IAABC 1, KPA 1, CPDT 1



    Lately trainers running aggressive dog classes seem to be on the rise. This is good and bad. Good because people who own aggressive dogs have more options for working with their dogs than ever before. Bad because it means that aggression in dogs is on the rise. Good because more people are preferring to work with their dogs, rather than opting to euthanize, and bad because so many trainers who run classes are not qualified to do so, and often end up making the dog worse.

    Trainers who don’t own aggressive dogs can lead an aggressive dog class, but living with an aggressive dog is the best teacher. These trainers experience up close and personal the fears, frustrations, the cost and time limitations, as well as the stigma that society places on owners of aggressive dogs. To maximize the training, it’s important to remember that there’s an owner attached to the top half of the leash and not just focus on the dog.

    Presented by Pamela Dennison

    CEUs: PPAB 2, CCPDT 2, IAABC 2

    The primary emphasis of The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone is to teach you to set up your own personal desensitization protocol, using simple foundation behaviors (incompatible and alternate) and a positive relationship.

    Because of the nature of living with an aggressive dog, you’ll need to understand that one simply can’t get the aggression “to just go away.” Nature abhors a vacuum and we will fill the behavioral space with relevant, stimulating and fun skills for you and your dog as part of the desensitization process.

    The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone program focuses on:

    • Establishing foundation behaviors
    • Learning to shape new behaviors
    • Reading your dog’s body language properly
    • Learning to interpret your environment, quickly and effectively
    • Teaching you to set up safe and successful sessions
    • Erecting a line of communication from both sides of the leash
    • Learning how to properly set, raise or lower criteria
    • Teaching you to be a more effective trainer overall
    • Applying the counter conditioning and desensitization process correctly
    • Understanding the causes of aggression, including the human factors
    • Breaking down behaviors into the smallest of approximations
    • Staying focused and concentrating under pressure
    • Turning off the environment and tuning into your dog
    • Learning positive training techniques and foundation behaviors
