  Description of Seminar/Conference

This two hour presentation is an overview of Touch Associated Clicker Training (TACT), a practical training solution for the challenging canine behavior of dog-human reactivity/aggression. The presenter will utilize video presentation as well as case study data to explain this unique approach to modify reactive/aggressive canine behavior.

TACT is an innovative new training methodology that creatively combines the science and art of learning theory, clicker training, and massage therapy. This methodology is used specifically to rehabilitate and prevent shy, fearful, reactive, and aggressive behavior in dogs and puppies. TACT incorporates ritualized protocols designed with safety, structure, and predictability.

Dog handlers and canine professionals/volunteers will learn an overview of how the TACT method:

  • Desensitize a dog's fear of people and new environments
  • Build confidence and coping skills, while changing the emotional response in fearful dogs
  • Provide structure, bringing predictability to the dog's life
  • Develop and deepen the canine/human relationship
  • Recognize canine body language and use this knowledge to set dogs up for success
  • Implement an effective home and real world management program
  • Learn the TACT foundation and emergency foundation behaviors
  • Develop a two-way communication system between dog and handler
  • Provide a plan for healthy self-care through the TACT Caregivers Fatigue program
