World-renowned animal trainer Kayce Cover, founder of Syn Alia Training Systems (SATS), developed the program for Perception Modification that this course is based on. It is a protocol for teaching animals to handle stressors and manage their emotions.
Conditioned relaxation is the first of the two phases of SATS Perception Modification and is a powerful tool for helping dogs that struggle with:
- Hyper-arousal, or the inability to calm down and relax when appropriate
- Reactivity to people or other animals
- Noise phobias
This five-week course will teach your dog to understand the difference between an alert and a relaxed state of mind and body. This is a powerful realization that enables them to relax on command and eventually decide to seek a calm, relaxed state of being for themselves.
Class sizes are extremely limited and each dog must undergo a private assessment prior to participating, in order for us to appropriately cater to each dog’s environmental requirements for success.
