Some dogs are relaxed in new and different settings or approaching unusual objects and surfaces, but other dogs build stress in these same situations. Dogs that build stress may act out with unwanted behaviors like barking, lunging, and growling, while others may shake in fear, try to flee, freeze, or hide. All of these negative reactions to stress can be re-mediated with focused training, which then helps that dog live a happier, more well-adjusted life. In this class we will expose dogs to objects like umbrellas, kiddie pool, wobble board, tunnel, and jumps. We will also travel out and about to locations they might feel nervous about like Lowe’s. In these varied situations, I will teach you exercises and techniques you will need to help your dog be brave in any situation!
Upcoming Classes: Thursday, 9/12 - 6:30 PM
