Then we progressed to petting him while licking the butter and integrating lifting…

My goal in presenting, is to help practitioners learn techniques for less stressful handling they can use the next day. Sugar Creek Veterinary Clinic in Bentonville Arkansas was a place I presented my Top 5 Low Stress handling Techniques and they send me these wonderful photos of a reactive Shepherd who would be moderately stressed with meds. Using the positive muzzle technique, and continual assessment of triggers, this big guy laid down on his own and lapped at peanut butter as his nails were trimmed. His best nail trim ever! I am so honored to know they used what they learned, and for them to share this with me, so I can share this story with others. Thanks Dr Ensley and staff! See MoreSee Less
