How to Get Your Dog to Let You Check His Face

See the difference between traditional and cooperative care.

This short video shows two versions of a wound assessment. For the purposes of this video, Calvin the Cocker Spaniel has a pretend cut on his face that his handler needs to check. You’ll see the difference between a traditional care scenario, and a cooperative care scenario.

In the traditional scenario, both dog and human are frustrated and mildly distressed. Calvin spends the entire process jerking his face away, trying to escape.

In the cooperative care scenario, Calvin lets his handler know he’s ready to begin by lying down on a mat (an example of a start button). The handler presents her hand (a trained cue for Calvin to rest his chin in her hand), and Calvin rests his chin there, keeping his face still enough for his handler to get a good look at his {pretend} wound.
