About that training
In order to see success (and, as a result, happy patients and clients), the approach needs not only consistency in application, but specific, realistic goals from the outset. For example, a client saying “I want a calm dog” is not enough. Instead, get specific: “Does not panic during fireworks” for a noise-phobic dog, or “Can be left alone” for a separation anxiety case. This level of detail changes the medical management and behavior modifications selected for the case.
