Cooperative Care
What is Cooperative Care you ask?  It’s simply teaching your dog to not only tolerate handling and husbandry procedures, but to be an active, willing participant in these experiences.  Imagine your dog sitting patiently for a nail trim, physical exam, blood draw, or ear cleaning or even having ear or eye drops administered!  It can happen!
