Behavior Management In The Workplace (2-Day Seminar)
February 15 @ 3:00 pm - February 16 @ 5:00 pm$299
What is Behavior Management?
This 2-day seminar focuses on teaching pet care workers behavior management. They will begin by learning how to recognize fear, stress and frustration in dogs and cats. We will teach how to recognize body language signals that indicate an animal is overly stressed or fearful. There will be discussion of the fundamentals of learning theory. This will including the pros and cons of positive reinforcement versus positive punishment when working with animals.
Students will learn how to use systematic desensitization and classical counter conditioning to help reduce fear while in the professional’s care. This course is not about behavior modification. It focuses on the management of fear and anxiety, and how to increase your odds of a successful outcome for the pet and professional.
Interactive class activities will encourage students to practice their skills at reading body language. They will then develop a real-time management plan that can be implemented with pets in their care. All pet professionals will benefit from this knowledge and experience.
Day 1 (Feb. 15th): 3:00pm – 6:00pm
Day 2 (Feb. 16th): 8:00am – 5:00pm
