WHAT IS COOPERATIVE CARE?
Cooperative care includes the procedures and behaviors necessary for your dog’s health and well-being. Things like grooming and veterinary care fall under the cooperative care umbrella. It is also commonly referred to as husbandry.
Many pets have a difficult time being touched, groomed, bathed or struggles with vet visits.
GETTING A DOG TO TRUST YOUR GOOD INTENTIONS
Do you need help with:
Less Fear, Anxiety, and Stress
By giving your pet the power to opt in and out of their care you will reduce their fear, anxiety, and stress related to care.
Increase Your Pet's Confidence
Having your pet become a willing participant of his/her own care their confidence will increase, thus increasing their tolerance of future handling and veterinary care.
Reduce the Risk of Injury
Animals experiencing high levels of fear, stress, and anxiety are more likely to lash out. This increases the risk of injury not only to themselves, but to their caregivers as well. A pet who willingly partakes in care is much less likely to lash out negatively.
Because grooming your pet is more enjoyable you are are more likely to brush him in between grooming appointments so grooming appointments won’t be as strenuous. You can also learn to clip your pet’s nails at home!
