Trimming a dogs' nails, or getting a dog to happily wear an Elizabethan collar or a head halter -- all these can pose a challenge for many pet parents. This seminar will review the skills and concepts involved with helping jumpstart these behaviors in shelter dogs. We will review the hands-on work that was practiced during the hands-on workshops from this year's conference, discuss clicker training and desensitization techniques, and charting your progress. This information can easily transfer to your personal training practices.
Review how to desensitize a dog to happily accept a nail trim, head halter or Elizabethan collar.
Discuss how to effectively charting training progress, in order to accurately determine if training goals are being met.
