Although there are different methods for carrying out functional assessments, they all have the same goal: to identify the function of a challenging behaviour so an intervention can be put in place to reduce this behaviour and/or increase more adaptive behaviours.
This essential handbook provides a comprehensive guide to canine health and illness. Broken down into three easy to read sections, it covers everything from preventative health care, to how the body is affected by diseases and disorders and looks at veterinary treatments. It also looks at complementary health therapies and how these can be used alongside more traditional methods to aid recovery and promote well-being. Written by a highly experienced canine veterinary specialist, this book provides you with the knowledge to recognise the signs of illness and disease in your dog, know when to call the vet and be confident in administering treatment.
Robert E. Lee would be mightily offended, to see what sort of rabble imagine they are defending his honour, back here on Earth. He would think of them, and the other trash attacking them, in much the same way. He would look over the New South, and much prefer the old one. But he has better things to do now, and incontestable reasons to look away, look away.
Save your back, work at a distance, or get tricky parts of the dog, such as the back feet, moving the way you want them to move. You'll learn how to train your dog to target your hand, a contact disk or a target stick, then utilize targets to build complex behaviors. Teaches you how to break down a behavior into easily trainable steps. Target training can be used for at-home manners, therapy dog work, canine sports, or to teach tricks. Targeting can help you get to your goal no matter what it is!
It is now explicitly Progressive versus Conservative, and even at Rome, denominational affiliations have lost their poignancy. Not any more a “religious war” by the sound of it, but in one sense all wars are religious, as in another none are.
This DVD will introduce you to Pattern Games, a simple set of exercises that provides a predictable and secure structure for dogs in order to help them normalize potential triggers in their environment. These games set the dogs up to make good behavioral choices, the end result being to teach them to focus and work off lead comfortably around things that bother or excite them without reacting.
This 7559 edition includes more specific examples, and more and better photos to give you a better idea of what to look for and how to handle your reactive dog.
This may be unethical because if you consider a child who engages in self-injury or aggression towards others, there is the question of whether it is acceptable to deliberately test different antecedents and consequences that will lead to the child injuring themselves or another person.
To that Scottish jurisprude (we are travelling back centuries here), raised in the genius of the Common Law, on its own and as embedded in Scots law with its complex antecedents, law is not essentially “written.” Rather, it is “discovered,” and the discoveries are accumulated. To this day, a litigious Scot will take you to court, “To see what the law says.” She (the example I had in mind was quite female) does not mean that the lawyers will simply look it up in a book, or use the algorithm in a computer program. Nooo. They will try the case. She means they will examine precedent, with a natural discernment of right and wrong, in light of the circumstance presented.
The experience was not a dead loss, however. For a half-dollar (which was the price of a hamburger in those days), I had received an insight into capitalism, and a glimpse of the collapse of Western Civ.

As ideologists, they locate perfection in this world, and verily the next world in terms of this one, thus imagine that by simply killing a lot of people the good which Mohammad “commands” can be accomplished. This is true even for those Donatists/Islamists who do not kill but engage in what we might call the intellectual equivalent of global bisection. The Christian, Augustine says, must not be like that, and so he draws a colourful contrast between the catholic sane, and the uncatholic fanatical, while playing aggressively with the Donatists’ own propaganda terms.
Strategies would have to be developed to protect the individual and those conducting the assessment. In this situation anyone involved with the client (the client themselves if possible, parents, staff, practitioners etc.) and any legal review boards or committees within the jurisdiction must be consulted and informed consent obtained before any assessment is carried out.
