There’s really nothing new under the behavior-modification-protocol-sun. We’re all bound by the laws of behavior, after all!
So what makes this protocol different?
It’s easy for us to get clients on board with our protocol. This is one of the few activities that we very rarely have to convince someone they need. And the skill to move away from something is usually the opposite of what someone is looking for when they first come to us.
So how do we easily convince someone they need the opposite of what they wanted? This course will explain how.
There are a lot of fabulous training protocols that teach the skill of moving away. But, oftentimes, that’s where they stop: as a training protocol. Wouldn’t it be great if pets could learn how to perform this as a life skill, outside of a standard training session? Or, even better, when their handler isn’t even present?
This course will walk you through how to turn moving away from something to use in a training session to a life skill that the pet can use on their own.
Emily Strong is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant and Shelter Behavior Affiliate. She has been in the animal welfare industry since 1990 and has been a behavior consultant since 2008. She is the co-owner of Pet Harmony, co-author of Canine Enrichment for the Real World, and a national speaker.
Emily started working with animals at a young age and struggled with the notion that you have to hurt, scare, or intimidate animals to help them. When she discovered the behavior sciences and learned that it wasn’t necessary to do so– that we can care for emotional, mental, and physical health simultaneously– she plunged headfirst into animal behavior. Emily loves helping current and prospective behavior professionals and working with pet parents through our in-depth services. She enjoys working with all species.
This course is for anyone who teaches other people how to help pets with behavior issues, regardless of whether you identify as a behavior professional or not! This course is very heavy on teaching clients and fostering client collaboration.
I mean, not to toot our own horn, but it’s been a game changer for everyone on our team and for a ton of our students. We use it with almost all of our own clients and with a wide array of behavior issues. So, we think it’s pretty great.

Not for this one, though you will have access to recorded Implementation Sessions where we answered past students questions. Chances are that someone has already asked the same question and the answer is right at your fingertips in these recordings!
In our live courses, we offer Implementation Sessions where students can pop into a Zoom session and ask questions pertaining to course material. You will have access to past recorded Implementation Sessions in this course.
