An Ounce of Prevention
Dates: Saturday, TBD at 2:15 p.m.
Class duration: 5 weeks, 1 hour per week
Instructor: Cathy Painter, LVT, CBCC-KA
This class is for dogs that are unsure or nervous about visiting the vet, or who are easily overstimulated at the vet's office. These dogs could be experiencing anxiety and/or fear. We help you learn to read canine body language so you will know when your dog is comfortable and when the dog is just being compliant. We will help your dog learn to tolerate, even enjoy, the types of body handling associated with physical exams. They will also begin learning polite waiting room behaviors!
If your dog has a history of aggression at the vet, such as barking, growling, attempting to bite, "A Pound of Cure" is just what you need (coming soon). It is meant for dogs that already have a significant fear response to the veterinary environment.
Class size: Maximum 3 dogs
Requirement: Current vaccinations appropriate to the age of the dog.
