About the Workshop
Is your dog touchy about being touched? Does he fight like a wolverine when you try to cut his nails? Is he stressed and nervous when you go to the vet? Would you like to make grooming and vet visits more relaxed and less tense for both of you? Then this workshop is for you!
Spend the day with Deb learning about Cooperative Care and all the ways we can make physical handling and necessary procedures less stressful and more enjoyable. We will present, demonstrate, and practice husbandry techniques to make the process so much better for everyone involved, without the use of force or pressure. The concepts of choice, control, and consent will be covered as we introduce techniques for encouraging cooperation.
Learn the techniques that Deb teaches in her extremely popular 6 week online class at Fenzi Dog Sports Academy. Your dog will be glad you did!
