- You learn the FIX for the “…but it was only a nip" syndrome. Michael tells you exactly what questions to ask the owner on the phone before you meet the dog so there are no surprises about Fluffy's bite history!
- You get a list of what to wear to avoid injury and how to prepare in advance for an emergency.
- You will see pictures of equipment and equipment set-ups so you know how to protect yourself once you start working with the dog.

- Michael illustrates the different types of dog fights and teaches you the correct way to break them up as well as giving you a list of the tools that he likes to carry in his training bag.
“I treat every aggression case as if the dog has a long history of very damaging bites. This “overkill” approach is the best way to keep you safe – you certainly don’t want to be the first person a dog with blossoming aggression issues has bitten!”
