Ami, The Dog Coach has testified as an expert witness and/or been brought in as a consultant or investigator and/or to assist in building a case.

Coach Ami has also successfully rehabilitated dogs that have been declared dangerous by local courts. Ami has successfully aided the owner in petitioning the court to remove restrictions on the dog and dog owner once the dog has completed the rehabilitation training.  In all the cases involving dog aggression, Ami’s clients have all received benefits from Ami’s involvement.

Ami is a proponent of using negative reinforcement and flooding to rehabilitate aggressive dogs, a movement that has been championed by Dr. Jesus Rosales-Ruiz, and his negative reinforcement and flooding procedure known as C.A.T.

“Research done by University of North Texas associate professor Jesús Rosales-Ruiz, Ph.D. demonstrates that classical treatments for aggression have us barking up the wrong tree. C.A.T. is a humane improvement over “desensitization, counter conditioning and distraction procedures”.

C.A.T. is an operant approach to treating aggression, not in a laboratory, but in the real world where aggression occurs. C.A.T. typically produces long-lasting results in far less time than any positive treatment available. It acknowledges that the dog is already receiving reinforcement for aggression and sets up a procedure in which the same reinforcer that currently supported.”
