Class goals:

Your dog learns how to do an anxiety alert or self-harm interruption for any stress sign you choose. He will learn a nose poke and chin rest as alert behaviors.

He will also learn how to:

  • apply deep pressure therapy (squeeze box effect)
  • physically block you other people or stressors (give space between you and people in front or behind you in a line-up for example)
  • how to find an exit
  • how to find your car

Many step by step videos and a training checklist are included in this class.

This class builds on knowledge from the Foundations classes for both dog and handler so it is highly recommended that you have taken them before this class or have a strong understanding of the principles of marker-based training and techniques for teaching basic body awareness.
