What kind of personality should a trainer have to work with aggressive dogs? Is fear a good thing? How do you work towards being successful in aggression cases? It’s covered in my interview with Michael Shikashio, CDBC and Board President of IAABC. Mike discusses the makeup of a good aggression trainer, and how to deal with fear that may sometimes come up when working with an aggressive dog. He explains why having fear is not necessarily a bad thing when you work with dogs. He also shares about his own background and what path he took to becoming a specialist in dog aggression cases. This information will be very helpful to all trainers who take aggression cases and those who want to learn more about this aspect of dog training and behavior. We hope you enjoy the podcast interview with Michael Shikashio!
