• clean the teeth
of large, dangerous animals when we can not perform these basic procedures for our family pets?
They can't be forced, sedated or manhandled, it's too dangerous!
They do it through training and that training is called Cooperative Care
You and your dog can learn this too!
Procedures for Veterinary Visits, Grooming & Routine care can be positive, relaxed, stress & fear free.
Trust is built by giving the dog the option to say "No Thank You", "too scary", "I'm not ready yet" and this choice not only builds trust but it also makes your dog an active, cooperative member of the training process.
