Memory Walsh has been a member of our team since 2013. She has recently attended 20+ hours of continuing education courses in low stress handling to become a gold level low stress certified handler for dogs and cats.
The purpose of this Certification in Low Stress Handling is to provide the teaching content needed to understand and improve the individual or hospital’s ability to create a low stress environment and handle animals in a less stressful manner. Coursework for this Certification goes beyond the teaching available from Dr. Yin’s book/DVD Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats and related training videos.
Congratulations Memory on this amazing accomplishment and thank you for your hard work towards this certification! It means the world to us and our patients that you would take this extra step to make our clinic and patients more comfortable at every visit.
A large portion of Low Stress Handling relies on the development of important hands-on skills. Among these are the abilities to:
- Recognize the overt and subtle signs of fear and anxiety in dogs and cats and identify the common mistakes people make when approaching and greeting pets that make the animals more fearful or aggressive. Learn to approach and handle pets in a relaxed, non-threatening manner.
- Learn how the sights, sounds, smells, and surfaces in your practice may be increasing the stress in your patients. Discover ways to create a calmer, safer, and more secure environment.
- Learn 5 methods for controlling the rear and 7 for controlling the front end in dogs. Determine which directions of movement (forward, back, right, left, up and down) each hold controls. Evaluate which restraint hold is best for a given dog and procedure.
- Understand how every interaction – how you approach, pick animals up, move them from place to place, or restrain them – affects the animal’s perception of you and their willingness to cooperate. Learn how to position your body and adjust your movement to provide the direction and guidance the animal needs.
Way to go, Memory!
