Safe and Skilled: Behaviors That Defuse Dangerous Situations
The right behavior can stop a reactive or aggressive episode in its tracks! It can prevent an episode from happening, or it can shorten the duration of an event. In this Session, you will learn how to teach dogs these essential behaviors, discuss how to use them more effectively, and learn how selecting the proper cues will also solidify the reliability of these behaviors. When foundation behaviors are described, these behaviors, performed at the level of performance criteria, are not what most people think of. But for any dog around other dogs, perhaps they should be! These behaviors include: Get Behind, Back-Up Sit, Recall with Back-Up, Back-Up with Down, and Emergency Recall.
