On-Demand Webinars

“Keeping it Simple in Aggression Cases”
Dog aggression cases can be complicated enough. Maximizing efficiency, without sacrificing safety, can foster client participation and overall success. This webinar will teach you how to streamline your current processes and behavior modification plans. Using a systematic approach and focusing on the most crucial components of working an aggression case will benefit you and your clients by saving time, effort, and resources. Topics will include evaluating your intake forms and processes; techniques for keeping clients focused; behavior modification simplified; using modern technology for efficient communication; and how to structure your training and consultation sessions.
 
“Prognosis and Realistic Goals in Aggression Cases”
Setting realistic goals for clients in aggression cases is crucial for success and avoiding burnout. This webinar will demonstrate how to use an objective approach by evaluating more than a dozen key factors which allows trainers and behavior consultants to set realistic expectations for clients. Discussing this prognosis, or the likely outcome in a case, allows clients to understand what true success may look like, foster participation, and systematically assess potential for outcomes such as behavior modification, management alone, re-homing, or euthanasia when applicable. Real cases with different outcomes will be presented and how the prognosis played a role in their overall success.

 

ALL events, courses, and mentorships are approved for CEUs with CCPDT, KPA, and IAABC.
