What Attendees are Saying:

Dr. Sally J. Foote holding Ranger"Dr. Foote's Low Stress Handling techniques are invaluable in all veterinary settings. The methods she highlighted in both evaluating and handling fearful and aggressive animals have been extremely helpful and were easy to implement immediately in our clinic."

- Carin VanderKlok, DVM Humane Alliance

"Dr. Foote was upbeat, positive, and enthusiastic when speaking! As a veterinarian, I learned so many tools and tips to help make each and every one of my patients have a more positive experience. She teaches a culture that will strengthen the human-animal bond and make visits to the vet fun for everyone!"

- Lindsay Henschel, DVM

"Dr. Foote is an invaluable resource in Low Stress Handling techniques! As a veterinarian working in a spay/neuter clinic, for many of my patients, it is the first experience they have had at the veterinary clinic. The techniques and skills I learned after attending CE with Dr. Foote have been instrumental in creating a fear-free, low stress environment for my patients while still maintaining a high degree of efficiency and safety. Her insight and recommendations have helped me to be more aware of the needs of my patients and I am better equipped to accommodate those patients to alleviate both their stress and mine!"

- Chelsea Fogal, DVM
