Behaviour First Aid
Management advice involves implementing protocols that will prevent dogs practicing unwanted behaviour, avoiding contributing to a worsening of behaviour and building a foundation upon which modification will be most effective.

Seminars

€40 Per Person
We offer a range of seminars that are more in depth coverings of topics relevant to veterinary professionals.

Dogs in the practice
This approx. three-hour seminar looks at the safest and most stress-reducing techniques for moving, handling and caring for dogs, calmly and safely.

Adopting some of these strategies and helping to education your clients, will boost efficiency, minimise distress and make your practice a more pleasant place to work in and visit. 

Preparing canine patients

This approx. three-hour seminar covers simple training that pet owners can implement at home to prepare their pets for stress-reduced, cooperative vet care.

This in turn will help the dog (and pet owner) have an easier time under your care, increasing the efficiency of treatments and improving safety for your staff. 

Canine body language seminar

Through the use of interactive resources and discussion, this approx. three-hour seminar looks at recognising canine signaling, particularly canine stress, and implementing strategies to reduce stress, diffusing potentially dangerous situations.

Having an increased awareness of canine communication can help to improve safety and boost the comfort of canine patients.

Running puppy parties

This approx. three-hour seminar covers some of the vital exercises to include in Puppy Parties, what to emphasise with pet owners and how to supervise puppy play and interactions to facilitate the development of appropriate social behaviour.

Implementing these with your clients will help to get puppy & person off to the best start.
