How Can We Help Fearful Dogs?

  • Is your dog's behaviour confusing you? 
  • Do they get frantic on walks and hard to handle? 
  • Are they desperately scanning the environment in case of some danger? 
  • Are you desperate to help your dog but they even seem scared of you? 

If your answer is yes, you might be dealing with a fearful dog. 
Fearfulness in dogs is much more common than you may think. All dogs are different and all show fear in their own unique way. Fear can look like confidence and it can even look like aggression. Worst case scenario and a scared dog does something that is labelled “bad” behaviour and is punished for it.
If you live with a dog who is scared, or work with a worrier, this course is for you.
