AGGRESSION

Starting March 10 2024

A Course for Behavior Professionals

Stranger-directed aggression (SDA) cases have unique needs and challenges compared to other forms of aggression. These cases range from mild to dangerous. As a behavior professional, you need more than basic skills and theories. You need a deeper understanding of the many nuances of these cases and practical skills and strategies.

In this 3-part online course, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the various types of SDA cases

  • Use risk assessments to stay safe and create better plans

  • Screen prospective clients

  • Identify lesser-known signs of pain/illness for veterinary referral

  • Work with veterinarians to manage complex cases

  • Take a thorough behavior history

  • Analyze, evaluate, and create practical and effective behavior plans

  • Structure safe setups

  • Avoid the problems caused by misunderstandings of DS/CC

  • And more!

Each live session will be 2 hours in length, including Q&A with Lisa.

All sessions will be recorded.

About Lisa Mullinax

I'm a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (IAABC) and have been in the world of dog behavior for almost 25 years. 

My journey in the world of dog behavior started when my dog Mac, a 7 year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback/ Boxer mix, bit a teenage girl.

 

The bite was severe, resulting in over 50 stitches and multiple plastic surgeries. Mac was seized by animal control and declared a dangerous dog and my world was shattered. I was incredibly fortunate to find a trainer and mentor who helped me understand Mac and keep him and others safe. 

In the two decades since, I have worked with countless dogs like Mac and their humans. I have had successes, failures, and heartbreaks...and more than a few very scary incidents. 

I want to share what I've learned with other professionals so they can avoid my mistakes, stay safe, and provide the support these special dogs and their humans desperately need.
