From sensory application to engaging the mind and brain in problem-solving activities, the Canine Emotional Detox (CED) provides the right combination of progressive elements to achieve stress release in challenging dogs in the form of a systematic process. Diane Garrod
Trainers strive to be more effective in analyzing behavior, in getting faster results and helping dog guardians be compliant with ultimate goals of longer lasting results. All are good reasons to apply a systematic stress release process. Systematic means there is a step-by-step format. This will be more effective working with the client, so getting their buy-in to the process is important.
A partnership of dog, client, and trainer
Building a better relationship and bond between guardian and their dog, while creating a stress-free environment for a companion, foster or shelter dog, or solving high-level challenges, such as aggression, hyperactivity, high-level reactivity, sound sensitivities, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorders), separation anxiety and more, is a long-term CED goal. Knowing when to bring in a veterinarian, veterinarian behaviorist or other professional as a part of the team, making trainer’s job easier and saving a canine life is ultimate and short-term CED goal.
The CED is that missing link to enhancing results of a successful behavior modification program to identifying skill deficits and seeking long term results for challenging dogs and their guardians. It encourages positive relations and teaches the guardian, while focusing on the dog as a unique individual. It releases stress toxins, tests problem-solving skills, and looks at other issues like focus, equilibrium, and the dog’s environment.
Most of us jump right into behavior modification and skills training and sometimes results are less than convincing or lasting. Sometimes we have dogs so challenging we are afraid to set up a behavior change program or we assume euthanasia is the next step.
The systematic treatment process uses the right combination to neutralize bad stress chemicals from body and brain. A dog may not be in a state of learning yet due to acute or chronic stress in their lives. The CED provides a process, with the right combination of elements to de-stress the challenging canine and seamlessly lead trainer into an individualized behavior modification and skills applications process.
There are many studies, and books on stress and stress release, but there is nothing that explains an exact protocol to achieve deep sleep where stress release really starts to occur. The CED is that systematic stress release protocol. Everyone wants to know one thing, how to do the CED.
