Presented by Pamela Dennison


The primary emphasis of The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone is to teach you to set up your own personal desensitization protocol, using simple foundation behaviors (incompatible and alternate) and a positive relationship.

Because of the nature of living with an aggressive dog, you’ll need to understand that one simply can’t get the aggression “to just go away.” Nature abhors a vacuum and we will fill the behavioral space with relevant, stimulating and fun skills for you and your dog as part of the desensitization process.

The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone program focuses on:

  • Establishing foundation behaviors
  • Learning to shape new behaviors
  • Reading your dog’s body language properly
  • Learning to interpret your environment, quickly and effectively
  • Teaching you to set up safe and successful sessions
  • Erecting a line of communication from both sides of the leash
  • Learning how to properly set, raise or lower criteria
  • Teaching you to be a more effective trainer overall
  • Applying the counter conditioning and desensitization process correctly
  • Understanding the causes of aggression, including the human factors
  • Breaking down behaviors into the smallest of approximations
  • Staying focused and concentrating under pressure
  • Turning off the environment and tuning into your dog
  • Learning positive training techniques and foundation behaviors
