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.

dog when I’m on a walk!”
