Canine Lab 3: Handling and Restraining Small and Medium-sized Dogs with Skill and Ease

2.5 CE units

Days to complete course: 90

Force is often used to restrained small and medium sized dogs due to their size, causing them to struggle defensively. Procedures then take longer, and patients become more difficult with each visit. In this online course, you will learn a variety of holds and be able to identify the directions of movement they control. You can then adapt quickly to the situation and to the dog’s response, creating more cooperative, calm future patients.




Learning Objectives:

• Learn five methods for controlling movements of the rear end and seven methods for the front end. Determine which hold to use for each direction (front, back, left, right, up, or down) and practice adjusting your hold to the dog’s movement.

• Discover how to safely pick up small dogs who may be friendly, but wiggly, as well as those who are aggressive.

• Evaluate which restraint hold is best for a given dog and procedure based on the dog’s body language and behavior.
