SDTSI PSD Ttraining upgraded to enhance Deep Pressure Techniques
Service Dog Training School International has improved their Psychiatric Service Dog Training Course by focusing more attention on deep pressure tasks, reckoning deep pressure therapy being the most beneficial
According to Service Dog Training School International the deep pressure stimulation (DPS) is a tactile stimulation which relaxes the nervous system. Specifically, to PSDs (Psychiatric Service Dogs), the sensory stimulation is provided through the dog's chin, if the dog is of large-medium size, and through laying on the assisted lap, if the dog is of small size. If the therapy is provided properly, it has a calming effect on the nervous system and makes the recipient feel calm and peaceful.
Deep pressure therapy is especially useful if the assisted is on the verge of an anxiety attack, an emotional overload, or a panic attack. The (deep pressure therapy) DPT service dog by placing its weight on the assisted, provides pressure and warmth, which triggers the parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) to replace the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), producing endorphin, dopamine, and serotonin and creating the feeling of happiness. It is important that the right amount of pressure is placed on the assisted, that is why the deep pressure task should be adjusted according to the size, weight and preferences of the handler and dog. Service Dog Training School International expert trainers are key to identifying the right deep pressure method to teach the wannabe PSD and can effectively discern if the task has been correctly assimilated by the dog.
The SDTSI team is confident that their enhanced Psychiatric Service Dog online training course will form more efficient PSDs and will receive positive feedback by the oncoming PSD handlers. More information about the course at: https://www.servicedogtrainingschool.org/
