TACT: A Training Program for Dogs that Are Fearful or Reactive Toward People
Emma Parsons

Positive, practical training solutions for the most challenging canine behavior problems!

TACT, Touch Associated Clicker Training, is an innovative new training methodology that creatively combines the science and art of learning theory, clicker training, and massage therapy. This unique approach is used specifically to rehabilitate and prevent shy, fearful, reactive, and aggressive behavior in dogs and puppies. TACT incorporates ritualized protocols designed with safety, structure, and predictability.

This 5-DVD set teaches both pet owners and experienced canine professionals how to:

Desensitize a dog’s fear of people and new environments
Build confidence and coping skills, while changing the emotional response in fearful dogs
Provide structure, bringing predictability to the dog’s life
Develop and deepen the canine/human relationship
Recognize canine body language and use this knowledge to set dogs up for success
Implement an effective home and real world management program
Develop a two-way communication system between dog and handler
Provide a plan for healthy self-care through the TACT Caregivers Fatigue program
