My friend Andrew Clark is running an amazing program.
If your dog has a Menacing Dog order or Dangerous Dog order on them, Andrew is your man.
Even if your dog has no issues, it is still a good idea to know about this.
Navigating through the legalities in council can be incredibly confusing and frustrating.
He works with councils and knows the ins and outs of what should and should not be done.
This is a very worthwhile program to sign up for!
Get on it people.** Dangerous & Menacing Dog / Early Intervention Behaviour Modification Program **
Commencing September at St Ives (NSW), Total Dog will be conducting a training program aimed at assisting people seeking revocation of Dangerous or Menacing Dog Orders or an early intervention for dogs with aggression issues.
Based on the successful program Total Dog piloted for Ku-ring-gai Council in 2015, and run numerous times since, the program will consist of five one hour sessions over a four month period. This is to allow time for real change to be observed in the dogs’ behaviour over an extended period. Additional sessions may be booked during this period if required. On completion a training report and an assessment of temperament will be provided for each dog.
The objectives of the program are: • Know the correct application process, • Know your requirements and the responsibilities of Council, • Develop a basic understanding of what determines canine behaviour, • Develop a basic understanding of the principles of dog training, • Develop a basic understanding of desensitisation and counter-conditioning, • Develop an understanding of environmental management, • Distinguish between desired and non-desired interactions, • Develop a better understanding of handling hyper-aroused, anxious or aggressive dogs, • Manage nuisance behaviours such as excessive barking and boisterous behaviour by way of exercise, environmental enrichment, environmental management, structure, training and healthcare, • Manage behaviour problems such as aggression and anxiety by way of environmental management, structure, training, desensitisation, counter-conditioning, environmental conditioning, socialisation and healthcare. • Know your responsibilities under law.
The dates and times will be confirmed upon application.
