Aggression Management Using Positive Reinforcement Techniques. Taped LIVE at various locations, this exciting menu driven 3 DVD set of The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone seminar will lead you to success in working with your own aggressive/reactive dog or teach you to help others.

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. The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone program focuses on establishing foundation behaviors, learning to shape new behaviors, reading your dog, learning to interpret your environment and teaching owners to be better trainers. This DVD set accomplishes that by bridging the gap between information presented in my books and knowing how to transfer that to real life.

What you’ll find in this DVD - real people, real dogs, real issues. You’ll see BIG concepts explained in an easy to understand and implement format. You’ll learn how to set up your own sessions and what foundation behaviors you’ll need. How and when to start a session, when to keep going and when to stop are also addressed.

What you won’t find - car wrecks, wildly aggressing dogs, blood or drama. The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone is about building a strong positive relationship, trust, safety and care, dozens of alternate and incompatible behaviors - incompatible to aggressing.

The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone - What does it mean?

Realizing Excellence With Attention, Redirection and Desensitization.

Attention - complete focus from your dog in any and all situations. Without it, your program can’t succeed.

Redirection - ­redirect your dog’s focus when particular provoking stimuli are present.

Desensitization - ­a procedure in which the dog is exposed to extremely low levels of a frightening stimulus while great things are happening to him so as not to cause a reaction. The level of the frightening stimulus is gradually increased, but never at a rate to cause distress.

For dog owners and trainers of any level, this seminar teaches handlers to manage, train, start and continue the desensitization process with their reactive/aggressive dog in a positive, pro-active and effective manner.

What experts are saying about The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone DVD :
The sessions were very informative for people trying to understand the complexity of helping dogs with arousal/aggression issues. The thing I found helpful is the emphasis you put on evaluating the handler/dog teams as to the behaviors the dogs responded to, and the way you explained the degree that these “foundation behaviors” played in the outcome of the retraining process. In addition, the way you ended the sessions with the teams getting something useful accomplished, but didn’t try and give the teams too much to work on was also refreshing. The methodical approach you used is right in line with how I have learned to coach people to train their animals in a successful way.
Overall, it’s a good product that can surely benefit those trainers in the industry starting out with more complex behavior cases and has some good pointers for even the more experienced ones too.

Pam Dennison's R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone for modifying reactive/aggressive dog behavior brings a fresh, new and exciting approach to a training world dominated by C.A.T., B.A.T., L.A.T. and counter conditioning methods. By helping the dog become enthusiastically engaged in a variety of training games and exercises and generously reinforcing behaviors that are incompatible with reactivity and aggression, the R.E.W.A.R.D. process creates a positive association with the training environment. This happy association generalizes with the careful introduction of the stimuli that the dog was previously reacting to. The dog becomes so attentive to his handler and so engaged in the training activities that the other dog, human, or whatever, essentially becomes an irrelevant non-issue. The counter conditioning/desensitization process is almost incidental to the operant training exercises, and seems to occur more quickly, and without the dreary drudgery that can be part of a straight counter conditioning program. I'm already contemplating how to add some of these very effective attention exercises into our own Reactive Rover workshops.

As I watch the R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone DVD, I'm thinking about everything I've studied and practiced. I've taken the instructor's course in BAT. I've studied and used CU with every dog I work with. I'm a graduate of the Counseling Program through Jean Donaldson's Academy. I've seen and participated in many of the "growly or feisty" classes. I've read the books and taken the 8-week course with Dr. Friedman. I am a student and I'm a trainer. I don't write books, and I don't blog. I work with reactive and non-reactive pet dogs and I teach people the skills needed to work with their own dogs. The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone compliments everything I try to do with my students; one package that incorporates everything I've learned and done, and then some.
The exercises in this program show how to effectively use reinforcement of other behaviors to ease the stress and pressure that comes from fear. I love watching real people make real progress. I especially like the parallel training where the reactive dog becomes so engrossed in what s/he's doing, that the other dog seems to become a non-issue. I will definitely incorporate much of what I've seen and learned from this DVD into pretty much all of my training protocols. The R.E.W.A.R.D. Zone has given me more ideas as to how to help my students and private clients build their relationship and maintain that very important connection.

Very worthwhile!, September 28, 2014
Reviewer: Jude in NJ
Here is a chance to look over the shoulder of a superb trainer. Pam shows a variety of dogs with reactivity issues and works with each team in slightly different ways (at least in the video) so we get to view many skills being taught. I especially liked the written comments shown on-screen during the presentations. Many of them mirrored my own thoughts while watching.

The audio quality in some parts is not the best, but you can always see what is going on.

Every handler or trainer who watches this will walk away with some new ideas for handling reactivity.
