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.

Prerequisites:
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.
