TACT: A Training Program for Dogs that Are Fearful or Reactive Toward People

by Emma Parsons and Julie Robitaille

5-DVD set

Positive, practical training solutions for the most challenging canine behavior problems! TACT (Touch Associated Clicker Training) is an innovative new training methodology that combines creatively the science and art of learning theory, clicker training, and massage therapy. This unique approach is used specifically to rehabilitate dogs and to prevent shy, fearful, reactive, and aggressive behavior in dogs and puppies. TACT incorporates ritualized protocols designed with safety, structure, and predictability.

This 5-DVD set and the 115-page companion PDF workbook teach both pet owners and experienced canine professionals how to:

  • Desensitize a dog’s fear of people and new environments
  • Build confidence and coping skills, while changing the emotional response in fearful dogs
  • Provide structure, bringing predictability to the dog’s life
  • Develop and deepen the canine/human relationship
  • Recognize canine body language and use this knowledge to set dogs up for success
  • Implement an effective home and real-world management program
  • Develop a two-way communication system between dog and handler
  • Provide a plan for healthy self-care through the TACT Caregivers Fatigue program
