What Will You Learn?
In this workshop DVD consisting of two lab sessions, you’ll learn how to confidently handle large and medium dogs, even dogs who are hyperactive, fearful or reactive. The workshop covers the importance of providing clear direction and guidance to dogs. You’ll participate in exercises on how to properly get dogs from place to place, how to position dogs safely for restraint, how to properly approach and move around fearful or aggressive dogs, how to control movement in all 6 directions, which common neck hold can put you at risk if done improperly, how to control a dog’s head safely and more.
You’ll learn a variety of restraint positions, and the importance of choosing the right technique and adjusting your handling based on the situation, the individual dog, and his responses to you. You’ll also learn the importance of how to get into a particular restraint hold safely and efficiently. In just under 3 hours you’ll have a whole new perspective on handling dogs and a new set of skills.
