Absolutely! We have found that there are limited opportunities to learn how to work with aggression in dogs, whether through a mentor or online. That is why we created this course!
We highly recommend previous experience training dogs before taking this course. Working with aggression in dogs should not be the first type of behavior issue a new trainer should start with. Taking this course assumes you have experience training dogs, are currently working with clients, and/or have an industry recognized certification such as, but not limited to DACVB, CAAB, ACAAB, CDBC, ACDBC, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA, CTC, KPA-CTP, CATCH Academy Certification, PMCT, VSA, or VSPDT.
Anyone with experience training dogs who is looking to expand their knowledge and skill set working aggression cases. Dog trainers, behavior consultants, shelter behavior staff, and veterinarians with an interest in behavior can benefit from this course!
Students have one year from the date of purchase to complete the course and it all depends on how much time you dedicate to learning! The course is self-paced, which allows you to learn based on your schedule.

Mike discusses and demonstrates how to effectively use differential reinforcement strategies, desensitization, and classical counterconditioning with aggression cases.

A schedule of times and topics will be emailed to you upon your completion of the course modules.
