    Description

    This webinar will provide practical advice to help you help your dog. While we do not have any magic wands, you’ll learn:

    • How anxiety and fear affect learning
    • Why dogs are afraid
    • The contributions of temperament and experience
    • What are the triggers?
    • How intensely does the dog respond? And how long to recovery?

    There is a confusing assortment of advice out there if your dog is shy, fearful, or anxious. How do you know what to try? How do you know if it’s even working? Maybe you did not try long enough or practice for enough days, or months – or years?

    Suzanne’s approach helps you understand your dog as an individual, and how to select the approach that may be most effective for your dog and your situation. She’ll also guide you to understand why some advice sounds good, but is not behaviorally sound, and often fails the dog badly.

    We’ll explore some commonly encountered myths about fearful & shy dogs:

    • “She’ll get over it” – Why this approach can backfire so badly
    • Why providing comfort to a scared dog is the right response
    • “If they can eat, they’re okay!” The myth of the Ben & Jerry response

    Keys to helping your fearful, anxious, shy dog:

    • Knowing when to stay and when to go
    • How to provide safety & avoid conflict
    • RCT Skills to build confidence
    • Practicing for success
    • Being your dog’s support team

    Above all, this webinar – like everything Suzanne teaches – will help you strengthen your relationship, build trust and help your dog (and you!) gain new confidence.
