This one day seminar is aimed at both pet owners and those working with dogs professionally.  Presented by Amber Batson, a vet and behaviourist, the day will include a look at basic brain anatomy and physiology with the main emphasis on why understanding structural elements of reactivity is essential to any retraining.


There will be a detailed look at how sleep and play affect dog reactivity and how these can be used as 'therapy' when we use a multifaceted approach to help improve reactive dog issues.


The day will also include trouble shooting: a look at the most common mistakes made when attempting to fix reactive behaviour problems and how to avoid them by applying practical scientific knowledge to get better results.
