How confident are you at helping the stressed dog in practice? Do you understand the signs of stress/anxiety and, more importantly, do you know how to alleviate these for the good of all? These are essential skills in providing effective routine and preventative health care for canine patients, safely. For all aspects of care for dogs, including in-practice management – behaviour is EVERYTHING! Are you prepared?!
This interactive course will focus on the use of canine-friendly handling techniques that will reduce the problems associated with anxious or fearful dogs, facilitating increased productivity and job satisfaction. We will look at strategies that can be tailored to the individual patient and situation, and general changes to the environment that will simply help many canine patients adapt better in the clinic.
We will also explore advice to be given to prepare dogs and owners in advance of visits; as well as how to optimise care and compliance at home following a practice procedure.
- Understand the reasoning behind the importance of low stress handling of dogs
- Know and apply principles of low stress dog handling, pre-emptive measures and trouble- shooting within the practice
- Be able to advise clients on helpful techniques to reduce dog stress before, during and after travel to the practice
- Guided research of areas relevant to this topic
- The use of discussion forums to share experiences and solutions to problems
- Creation of new protocols to take with you and assist you in the future
- Reflection on work to help you progress professionally
- Full IT and tutor support throughout, with feedback on your work on completion of the module
