This course is especially designed for those who work closely with behaviour practitioners doing rehabilitation dog training for dogs that exhibit challenging behaviour.
If a dog is showing behaviour concerns an accredited and qualified behaviourist will see the dog and then implement a behaviour modification programme which addresses many issues from diet to environmental enrichment and very often a very specialised training programme will be implemented to address the specific needs of that particular dog.
It often happens that distance and time may affect the behaviourists ability to implement a specialised training programme and will then make use of a trainer who has specialised in this area of training.
Behaviours that may need to be worked on in a very specialised training programme are Dog to dog aggression; Dog to human aggression; Uncontrollable barking and compulsive behaviours to name a few. These are behaviours that require specialist knowledge and usually cannot be addressed in the normal class setting.
This is a specialist short course designed for those who have completed the Confi-Puppy and the Adult dog training course
