Seminar description:

 

Fighting is expensive for dogs. Instead of jumping directly into fighting, most dogs give distance-increasing signals, from subtle to overt. But many dogs have also learned to give up on the subtle signals and leap straight to showing big aggressive displays, fighting, or fleeing in panic.

 



When dealing with aggression, fear, or frustration, BAT builds social skills, confidence around the trigger, and trust in the handler. While food or other rewards are used with BAT in some cases, the main focus of BAT is on using environmental rewards that already maintain the problem behavior.



This presentation will show many video clips with case studies using various BAT set-ups, as well as videos of how to deal with problems that crop up, a brief history of related methods used in the last few decades, and how to use BAT with other behavior modification techniques. We will discuss the science behind BAT, the reasons and ways that BAT is kept low-stress, how to get volunteers for set-ups, how to use BAT ‘undercover’ in the real world, how to deal with fighting in the home, how to rehabilitate fence-fighting, and more. You’ll also get to see multiple live demos with three or four dogs with reactivity issues and a puppy for socialization. Seeing demos with the same dogs over the two days will allow you to see the progress dogs can make with BAT.

Czy wiesz, że...

Nos psa jest około milion razy wrażliwszy od naszego. Pies ma także 40 razy więcej komórek mózgowych, związanych z rozpoznawaniem zapachu. Naukowcom nie udało się do tej pory stworzyć maszyny, która byłaby lepsza pod tym względem od psa.
