The environment is stressful for many dogs. The goal a fearful or reactive dogs’ training plan is to change a that dog’s emotional response to various stimuli. Without the paralysis of fear, a dog can remain responsive but be less reactive. In other words, with training, dogs can develop and use coping skills to help them remain focused and calm in an often noisy, sometimes unpredictable world. While we can’t always control our dog’s environment, we can give them the coping skills so that when life throws triggers their way, they can respond in ways that are less fearful and less reactive. Learn how to tap into the fundamentals of good training: Timing, mechanics and learning theory, to set dogs up for success.
