Resource Guarding: A Structured Approach to Getting Good Outcomes
Presented by Barbara Davis, CPDT-KA, CDBC
Canine resource guarding is a common problem for dog owners, which can vary in degree from mild to severe, from specific to very general. When resource guarding progresses to where the human/dog relationship breaks down, and worse, people are being injured, the dog may lose his home, and possibly his life. Many RG programs fail because the initial assessment isn’t as complete as it could be. Others fail because the foundation work doesn’t get done, the behavior modification steps are not “thinly sliced” enough, or the program is just too complex, burdensome or boring for the client to follow.
This seminar will cover:
- initial client contact and qualifying clients (which cases to take and which to let go!),
- completing an accurate assessment, separating the foodies from the collectors
- separating the operant from the pathological
- building an effective training plan, one brick at a time
- measuring results,
- client compliance,
- and more!
The target audience includes individuals experienced in dog training, who have a basic understanding of learning theory concepts (operant and classical learning) and familiarity with at the basic concepts of behavior modification. We will not be covering learning theory or b-mod basics in this program.
