Called "Re-Imagined Dog-Dog Aggression Treatment" (RAT), this innovative and highly effective, yet gentle antidote to aggression, is a science based treatment that speeds positive learning by reducing arousal and stress.
The program is presented by two of the industry's most respected behaviorists, Dr. Suzanne Hetts and Nancy Williams. Combined, they have successfully treated hundreds of aggression cases over the past 20 years. They have recently refined their techniques into the RAT program to enable other trainers and dog professionals to easily adopt these methods of treating dog-dog aggression in their private practices as well as in public dog shelters.
Using new tools to safely guide distraction, redirection and alternative behaviors, RAT is effective and efficient for on-leash and other dog-dog aggression. This method does not rely on endless rounds of repetition or physical force or fear and has been proven to have faster results and fewer stressful repetitions while utilizing fewer personnel than other methods.
The seminar will be presented at Bandilane Canine Center, Fairfield County's premier dog training and daycare center, from 9:00am-5:00pm each day. For more information and to register for the seminar please go to: www.puppyworks.com and click on "Our Events." Registration by phone is also accepted by contacting 917-699-6440.
