Description

Aggression control training requires dogs to think while they are excited and under stress, which is no easy task. Dr. Stephen A. Mackenzie has been teaching and using non-compulsive methods for aggression-control training for more than 30 years. His techniques have worked for hundreds of dogs, and have been used and adapted by many skilled trainers and decoys for their individual circumstances.
K9 Aggression Control provides a flexible approach to aggression control that is rooted in obedience training. You may be someone who uses a muzzle, sees a role for toys and games, and works with a decoy who likes to drop the sleeve, or you might not want a muzzle, toy, or dropped sleeve anywhere near your dog—either way this book has options for you. It details techniques and variations so you can choose the options you prefer. Dr. Mackenzie also gives decoys sound advice on controlling a dog’s excitement level, working with handlers, and making the best use of equipment.
A new chapter in this revised and updated edition shows you how to train dogs to indicate a person’s location without biting—essential for the search and rescue trainer and a real plus for modern police forces looking for ways to reduce liability.

SelectingtheCorrectDogandthe YerkesDodson Law
SelectîngtheCorrectDogTrainingapolicedogisalarge,multifacetedproject.Unfortu-nately, on the very first day of this project, many trainers inadver-tently and unconsciously doom themselves to failure by selecting the wrong type of dog. Good police dogs must be able to learn and solve problems when they are highly excited, and therefore, only dogs with the ability to think clearly when excited and quickly calm down when it is appropriate should be taken into training. Time and time again we see trainers testing canine candidates for confidence, environmental soundness, approachability, aggression, hunting behavior, and other important qualities and do nothing to evaluate the dogs’ ability to keep a clear head and calm down quickly. This is regrettable, since these are the qualities that allow us to teach aggression control later.
