This 7 session on demand study course is specifically designed to help the student learn how to resolve fear and aggression in dogs. It is the beginning of a series which will progress through methods to resolve fear and aggression issues in dogs. Science and the Art of Desensitization is Part I and mandatory for other classes that will follow. Students should have a strong understanding of basic dog training using positive techniques. People with a strong dog training background will find elements of this course can reinforce existing knowledge as well as expand on their experience.
Videos are used in this class to translate science into experience for people working to resolve fear and aggression issues in dogs. The goal is to allow the learner to see examples of how desensitization techniques are modified for individual dogs and circumstances. The videos include point-by-point explanations.
This course covers: Fear and aggression processes in the brain; Fight, fight, thresholds, stimulus and triggers; How dog personalities and socialization effects fear in dogs;
Case study of a noise sensitive dog turning aggressive when exposed to an unrecognized stimulus;
