This class teaches students how to conduct both group classes and individual training for animals in the veterinary hospital. The class will teach what some of the more common behavior fears dogs have in the hospital are and what type of training in both group and individual training can be used. Students can learn how to address fear from various forms of handling and procedures the pet may have done. The training is helpful both for dogs as a preventive and also as a form of training to address existing fear or aggression in the hospital. The class will also highlight working with the veterinarian to develop a better working relationship and greater outreach to potential clients.
