Perception Modification Online Class

Teach animals to cope with stresses and manage their emotions!

Countless animals – and their humans – suffer needlessly.

Many animals react explosively or fearfully to the stimuli of every day modern life, plagued by phobias, anxiety and dysfunction. Every year, millions of dogs lose their homes or their lives because they are unable to manage their emotions and cope with stresses they encounter.  Owners share the problems, and suffer alike.

But Perception Modification can help you help animals and owners to thrive.  Animals can learn to manage their own emotions and cope with stresses,  Everyone benefits and life improves!

Whether you are a trainer, a vet, a vet tech, a shelter volunteer, or someone looking to help an animal in your own life, this course teaches how to free animals from fears and reactivity, improving their lives – and yours!. Kayce Cover’s Conditioned Relaxation process is the foundation upon which the Perception Modification system is built, and teaches animals to recognize and manage their own state of mind, and respond to life, rather than react.   Perception Modification enables dogs and other animals to overcome “reactive” (“aggressive”) behaviors, fears and phobias that, unchecked, endanger the whole family’s quality of life and may directly endanger the life of the animal.  Perception Modification empowers animals to thrive!
