Dr. Mark Johnson will be teaching two different courses across North America specifically for the animal control officer, shelter worker, and disaster responder. These are the most extensive courses in handling fearful and dangerous dogs. They are also unique in teaching compassionate dog handling in which we are not fighting the dog. This is essential for professionals and volunteers addressing hoarding cases, responding to disasters, handling fearful dogs in shelters, assisting with trap/neuter/release programs, and rescuing dogs in general.
DOG CHEMICAL AND NON-CHEMICAL CAPTURE FOR ACOs is a three day course designed specifically for the animal control officer. In addition to the most thorough instruction on chemical immobilization, Dr. Johnson will enthusiastically cover a variety of approaches for physical restraint, boxtrapping, colony trapping, and the use of the Y pole to provide the ACO with a compassionate advantage when working with aggressive dogs.
