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.

• Determine when to use minimal or maximal restraint and which hold works best for the individual pet and procedure.

• 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.
