Using Play To Treat Canine Aggression
Instructor: Dr. Karen London, CAAB.
Faciliated by Suzanne Hetts, Ph.D., CAAB and Dan Estep, Ph.D., CAAB
Dealing with dog aggression problems can be frightening to pet parents and difficult for behavior consultants and dog trainers. In recent years, a variety of new therapeutic approaches have arisen as well as variations of older ones. Some of these have been helpful, some have not.
Now you have the opportunity to learn how play can be used to help with aggression problems. Play as therapy for aggression problems? How can that possibly work! Play can have a powerful influence on the emotional states as well as behavior of dogs, but its potential for dealing with behavior problems has been largely overlooked. Dr. Karen London has pioneered the use of play behavior as a component of behavioral therapy for dog aggression problems.
In this two session webinar, Dr. London will use videos, slides, and case studies to explain the basis for play therapy and to show how you can make play a part of the treatment for some aggressive dogs.
