Discover how Low Stress Handling™ can dramatically lower stress in the dogs under your care!
Whether you’re a veterinarian, veterinary technician, trainer, groomer, or pet owner, every interaction you have with a dog affects them. With your movements, touch, and tone of voice, you can confuse them … or you can direct and guide them clearly. You can increase their uncertainty and fear … or you can increase their confidence in you. In these two fascinating hands-on labs, Dr. Sophia Yin – veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and author – teaches you to handle, move, and restrain dogs of all sizes and personalities using the techniques of Low Stress Handling™. Step by step, Dr. Yin demonstrates how to give confident, clear direction and guidance with every interaction, resulting in dogs that trust you rather than fight you.

Praise for Handling, Moving, and Restraining Dogs in Stressful Environments:
[Low Stress Handling] is a key component of our vet’s practice work ethos. The animals [are] generally much more relaxed, we have a very low injury rate … [it] benefits the owners as we can often achieve results without expensive sedation.
