Free Veterinary Behaviour Resources From Jez Rose
6th October, 2011 10h13
The latest in a series of free resources on managing and preventing canine behaviour problems from canine behaviour specialist Jez Rose was released on Tuesday, timed to coincide with the fireworks season.
'Help! My dog is scared of fireworks!' is an A4 poster with full colour illustrations detailing a step by step plan on how to effectively reduce a dog's fear of fireworks and loud noises. Mr. Rose releases this poster in response to results of the PDSA Animal Well-being Report 2011 which revealed that 46% of dogs are afraid of fireworks. Each of the free posters in the series has space to allow personalisation with a practice logo or stamp. The series features posters aimed at both end clients and veterinary professionals to assist with behaviour and temperament problems.
The latest poster is part of a series of 12, one of which is being released each month. Other illustrated posters in the series, all designed by Mr. Rose, include: 'The Children's Guide to Woofs and Growls'; an illustrated guide for children showing how to behave safely around dogs; 'Calming Canine Clients' and '6 Top Tips for Desensitisation' which details how to effectively introduce a muzzle or claw clipping to a dog so that the dog enjoys it, in just six simple steps.
'Doggy Dos and Don'ts' is designed for veterinary professionals, detailing safe and effective behaviour around canine clients for the best compliance and stress-free experience, based on the non-verbal language of dogs. Mr. Rose said: "It is my aim that these free resources will assist both veterinary professionals and dog owners in more fully understanding canine behaviour, preventing stress and reactivity. Not only does this improve the experience for canine clients, owners and the examining vet or vet nurse but a dog that is clearly less fearful of the vet has commercial benefits, too."
Veterinary surgeon Wendy Stickells says: "We have been using Mr. Rose's advice to help desensitise our canine clients and have seen a definite improvement in even those who were quite fearful previously. Many owners have commented on how much more relaxed their dogs seem to be in the practice."
Each of the posters will be made available in A6 postcard format later in the year, available free of charge for distribution to practice clients, ideal for display in the waiting room.
