Using Enrichment to treat aggression
Aggression cases can seem daunting with so much on the line. How do you know what to prioritize? How do you know which path to take? How do you meet a dog’s needs when they have to be so heavily managed to keep everyone safe? For us, the answer lies in enrichment. Enrichment - meeting all of an animal’s needs - creates a clear path forward and breaks down a sometimes seemingly impossible case into manageable, doable chunks for you and your client. Join us as we discuss what enrichment is and showcase how to implement it in a systematic way using one of our complex case studies.
