This is where you will start to see a huge transformation in your dogs' behaviour around his trigger. With the use of some nifty handling skills, a pinch of counter conditioning and a heap of behaviour adjustment training this program brings together all the skills learnt in the foundation course applying them in a more real-life situation with the use of a controlled environment and stooge dog or stooge human. You will learn during the foundation program that in order for your dog to gain confidence around his trigger and to reduce his reactive response by rewarding more appropriate behaviours around that stimulus you need to work with the dog under his threshold. This means the dog is exposed to the stimulus at a distance and in a controlled environment which enables them to be aware of the trigger without reacting. Through the use of some positive reinforcement and decompression exercises, your dog can build up his confidence in a safe and controlled environment.
