BAT: Advanced Concepts

BAT – Behavior Adjustment Training

Course Information:

Learn how to build dogs’ coping skills, increase confidence, and decrease fear using Behavior Adjustment Training. You’ll learn how to add BAT to your behavior modification toolbox, not to replace your other tools like classical counter-conditioning, but to add a technique that will make you more effective as a humane trainer.

Most of the behavior that our clients want to change is maintained by the environment. That behavior can be replaced by more appropriate behavior with the same or similar consequence as a reinforcer. We have historically used this for jumping up and other issues, but it can also be used for aggression, fear, and frustration, as in BAT.

BAT gives the dog control over his environment. By doing so, the dog builds social skills, confidence around the trigger, and trust in the handler. While food or other rewards are used with BAT in some cases, the main focus of BAT is on giving the dog control and using environmental reinforcers that meet the dog’s needs.

Bark, Snark & Growl Classes

Bark, Snark, & Growl Classes

Course Information:

Part I: The Who, Where, Why & What
In this class, Wendy will talk about the logistics of running a reactive dog class. We’ll discuss which dogs should be in a class and how to assess them prior to enrollment. Wendy will also talk about how to grow your growl classes, as well as the logistics of doing a growl class – equipment, set up, arrival and departure, etc. In June, Wendy will discuss the curriculum she uses for her growl classes.

Part II: The How
Wendy has been doing growl classes for several years, and has seen a great deal of success with them. This class builds on her April telecourse, in which she discussed the logistical issues of running a reactive dog class. In this class, Wendy goes over the curriculum she uses for these very successful growl classes. Although it is not required, it is recommended that you listen to “Bark, Snark, & Growl Classes: The Who, Where, Why & What” before attending this class, as we will NOT be discussing logistical issues, and the logistics are crucial to running a successful reactive dog class.

Aggression in Puppies

Aggression in Puppies

Course Information:
To owners and trainers alike, puppies seem to be so flexible and moldable. But genetics are powerful, more powerful than training in manycases. Sometimes a puppy with a hot temper is placed with the wrong family, and the behaviors get worse. And there are rare times when puppies shouldn’t be placed at all. We will use video, behavior evaluations and case histories to investigate this issue

Canine Aggressive Behavior Management

Behavior Modification in the Real World

Behavior Modification in the Real World

If training only involved dogs, it would be so much easier! Our clients are all different. Some are committed and quick to learn, some would like to, but just don’t have the time, or the skills.
