Virtual Summit Recorded Webinar(One of 25 webinars that were featured in PPG's August Virtual Pet Care Summit)
Presented by Yvette Van Veen
CEUs: PPAB 1
This presentation will define the roles of various pet care professionals, what they bring to the table and the importance of working together with clients as a team to meet the needs of the dog, family and community. It will investigate the detrimental effects a "mixed message" can bring in terms of a dog's behavior, how mixing methods can lead to frustration, aggression, anxiety and learned helplessness, how to deal with conflicts, and when to know when to walk away. It will also discuss the benefits to clients of working with professional trainers, and how working with trainers can make your job easier in terms of management, long-term client care and creating happy clients for life.
