Cooperative Care: Chin Rest
The chin rest is a valuable cooperative care behavior that invites an animal to voluntarily participate in his care. In this course, you will learn the steps for training a solid chin rest behavior and discover its many practical, on-the-job applications. An animal can indicate he is ready to engage in a care interaction by offering a chin rest. If he is uncomfortable or experiencing a FAS, the animal can ‘opt out’ and request a break by not performing the behavior. In this manner, a chin rest allows for Fear Free veterinary exams, husbandry/grooming procedures, and other types of care.
