What is Fostering Collaborative Care?

Procedures that foster collaborative care aim to provide an environment where we help the pet be involved in their care and husbandry procedures.

We teach important skills using positive reinforcement and apply concepts such as

  • Giving pets a choice.
  • Enabling our pets to have a voice,
  • Using approaches to reduce anxiety, stress, and fear.
  • Working to improve the emotional, environmental, and physical well-being…
…. that is where the magic begins to happen.

Whether it be your pet or a client’s pet; a dog, a cat, or a bunny; in your home, during transport, at the veterinary clinic, or in your pet care business, There are so many uses for teaching this set of skills, and they are essential to building collaboration so pets can happily cooperate in their own care.

So let’s get started and give our pets choice and a voice while improving manageability through happy compliance during husbandry and veterinary care procedures.

The Fostering Collaborate Care presentations are delivered in two parts. The program provides you with the skillset and knowledge needed to help pet owners look after their pets’ emotional and physical well-being.
