This talk will be presented by trainer & behaviourist Roz Pooley of The Mutty Professor. Grooming, Nail trimming, Ear inspections and Vet Inspections are a routine part of the domestic dog’s life. Too often dogs are restrained so these procedures can be carried out and this restraint can cause high levels of stress, instil fear and at worst result in a dog lashing out and biting. This need not be the case. Husbandry training helps your dog actively participate in their own health care, volunteering to have procedures done instead of battling you to avoid them. This training greatly improves the communication between dog and carer and as such improves your relationship. Additionally, it’s fun, it’s mentally tiring for them and it helps you develop you understanding and application of positive reinforcement training.
