Show Notes

This is a great season for learning about systems based approaches to working with aggression cases. For this episode of Fresh Bites on The Bitey End of the Dog, I chat with Cat Harbord about her THRIVE system which focuses on using systems and linear problem solving approaches to help understand the dynamic interaction between the whole dog and the whole environment. Yes, that’s’ a mouthful and there is lots of geeking out on this episode, which is something we love to do on this podcast!
