The exercises and techniques on the Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification for Dogs & Cats Online Edition site and Dr. Sophia Yin in general are meant to provide pet owners with examples of positive techniques and programs they can use with their pets. Dr. Sophia Yin highly recommends that if you are working with an animal that has the potential to become aggressive or to harm you or or has notable behavioral issues such as fear, separation anxiety, compulsive disorder, or medical disorders such as osteoarthritis or endocrine disorders, that can contribute to behavioral disorders, you should consult an appropriately educated professional such as a veterinarian, veterinary behaviorist (www.ACVB.org and www.AVSABonline.org) or certified applied animal behaviorist (www.animalbehavior.org). Such professionals can coach owners through the techniques and tailor a program specifically for the pet’s needs.
For general training issues we recommend that everyone also enroll their pets in group positive-reinforcement-based classes and/or receive one-on-one coaching to ensure that the techniques are being performed correctly.
Users of this online education site must agree to indemnify and hold harmless Dr. Sophia Yin and CattleDog Publishing, as well as any of their affiliates, designees, subsidiary companies and officers, directors and employees against any liabilities, actions, claims, demands, losses, expenses and damages cause by or arising out of your actions as they relate to the use of the information presented on this online education site.
The Online Edition is designed to provide a lower cost alternative to purchasing the book and DVD, but the disadvantage is that it is not a book and DVD and the quality is not the same as an ipad app or ebook.
What do I look for when I preview the flashbook and sample videos?
We ask that anyone interested in purchasing access to the site first preview the flashbook and sample the videos (click here to preview). Check to see if your internet connection is fast enough to load the pages and videos at a reasonable rate, and that your computer and monitor give you a good viewing experience. Older computers and small monitors will slow down page browsing and videos. Larger monitors show more of each page and make for better viewing. Make sure you can read the text, view the photos, and flip through pages.
What is the purchasing process?
We use PayPal to process your credit card. You do not need a PayPal account to purchase access. When you click on the "Purchase Online Access Now" button, you will be lead to PayPal to confirm the purchase cost. If you have a PayPal account you can login, otherwise proceed through their secure online payment process. After your payment has been processed by PayPal you will receive an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org containing a unique link to the online edition where you can setup your password and agree to the site’s terms & conditions. Once you set your password you can login and use the online edition for 30 days. If you do not receive an e-mail within 24 hours, check your SPAM folder.
How do I "flip" through the pages of the flashbook?
To change pages within the flashbook, click your mouse in the upper corners on either side (the right side to go to the next page, the left side to go back) of the book. A page-curl animation will appear as you click and drag your mouse.
What size monitor is required to view the flashbook?
You can view the flashbook on any monitor, including laptops. The site fits best with a monitor capable of displaying a resolution of 1280 x 854 pixels, or more. This will reduce the need for scrolling as you read.
Can I zoom in to view the pages larger?
Not at this time. Due to the large number of pages and photos, the page size needed to be limited for efficient downloading.
Can I view the online edition on an iPad or other device?
Not at this time. Our digital book is in Flash format and Flash is not supported on the iPad or most current smartphones. Also the size of this book and video collection make downloading difficult without DSL or cable broadband. Please preview the pages before purchasing to be sure it is a comfortable reading size for you. For those who find the font difficult to read, you may want to consider purchasing the hard copy edition instead.
Can I share my login information with others?
Your one month access is only for one person. If multiple people in your hospital, shelter, business, or household are interested in viewing the product we recommend that you purchase the book and DVD. The DVD may be shown in lectures and for staff training so long as the source is credited.
