Cooperative Care Course for Dogs - Part Two (Starts Sunday, March 13th, 2022)

Regular price $85 Unit price  per 

This is the second course in a two-part series designed for dog guardians who are hoping to help their dog form positive associations with veterinary or grooming care needs. In this course we will use positive reinforcement, counter conditioning and desensitization to help you learn how to teach your dog that their routine care can be a safe and even enjoyable experience. This course is three weeks in length and will cover:

  • Leveraging the start button behaviors developed in Part One of this course with real-life care and husbandry task preparation. Students may wish to focus on a particular care task such as ear maintenance, nail clipping or filing, grooming, vaccination or body examination 
  • Combining the use of grooming and medical tools / props with body handling
  • Advanced muzzle conditioning techniques 
  • Cooperative nail filing 
  • Generalizing cooperative care skills to new people including a visit from a Vet Tech 
  • Planning tips for future veterinary or grooming visits 

Class sizes will be limited to a maximum of four, handler-dog teams. Dogs attending this course must be people and dog social and be able to calmly settle in a group class environment. If a dog is unable to adjust to the classroom environment, a credit for the value of the group class will be transferrable to the price of a private initial consultation. 

The next section of this course will be held at 372 S. Koeller St Oshkosh, WI (Ideal Dog) on:
