Many dog own­ers, shelter/rescue work­ers, train­ers, and other canine pro­fes­sion­als find anx­i­ety, fears, and pho­bias to be among the most chal­leng­ing behav­iors to treat. This information-packed work­shop com­bines lec­ture, pho­tographs, and exten­sive video footage to explore the art of work­ing with fear­ful dogs, with some over­lap into fear-based aggression. Top­ics include: Causes and prevention - How fear manifests - Rec­og­nized and lesser-known stress signals - How to work with fear­ful dogs in the home - Sug­ges­tions for group classes - A Firm Foun­da­tion pro­gram on which dogs can build confidence - Skills own­ers should know - Skills to teach dogs - What train­ing equip­ment is (and is not!) appropriate Inter­ac­tive exer­cises include par­tic­i­pa­tion in solv­ing a fear-related case his­tory. You will also learn how spe­cific com­ple­men­tary ther­a­pies and prod­ucts can make your treat­ment plans even more suc­cess­ful. Whether you are a pro­fes­sional or non-professional, you will leave with a bet­ter under­stand­ing of shy, anx­ious, and fear­ful dogs, and plenty of new tech­niques and ideas you can try out immediately.
