Canine Lab 2: Handling and Restraining Medium-sized and Large Dogs with Skill and Ease – Test Only

1 CE units

Have you ever struggled to position a dog or keep him there for an exam or procedure? Instead of using force to restrain uncooperative dogs, techniques which encourage their consent work better and safer. Using Low Stress Handling® techniques, you can support and guide the dog while controlling movement in all directions, just what they need to feel more secure.

Are you uncomfortable handling large, hyperactive, or seemingly aggressive dogs? Did you know that if you’re unaware of how the dog perceives every interaction, you could be giving unclear or conflicting cues which can cause him to become confused, fearful, and even aggressive? Learn the Low Stress Handling™ techniques that will allow you to provide clear direction and hence have good control to improve both your confidence in handling and the dog’s confidence in you.




Learning Objectives:

• Learn how to control the movement of the dog’s body in all six directions (front, back, right, left, up, and down).

• Learn how to safely position yourself to restrain a dog and identify the common positioning mistakes which increase bite risk.

• Discover how to keep dogs in a secured, well supported manner to keep dogs calm and cooperative.
