Cost: $260

Cooperative Care for Better Veterinary & Grooming Visits

Click! Pawsitive Family Pet Center, 1858 W. Grand River Okemos

August 8th - September 12th
Thursday's 7-8 PM

6 week course
Cost: $195

Cooperative care (CC) is training a dog to actively participate, or consent, to their care so that no force or restraint is needed! Instead of forcing dogs to only tolerate, or worse case they do NOT tolerate, invasive procedures we perform on them, we can flip the script and empower them to work cooperatively with us! CC is important for keeping your dog comfortable and calm while allowing your pet professional (vet, groomer, etc) to perform their job while maintaining a trusting relationship with your pup! CC covers many areas, but we will be focusing on vet care (exams, vaccines), grooming (bath, nail trims, brushing, ear cleaning, clipping), putting on their own gear, taking pills, body handling and more! Our ultimate goal is to have dogs who are relaxed and calm for procedures that will benefit their health and well-being. This class is appropriate for dogs of all ages and skills!
