Anxious Dog Online Classes

These classes are for those people wanting to improve their skills with fearful, anxious or traumatized dogs. Some dogs struggle in the world, flinching at the slightest noise, hiding from good-meaning strangers, or convinced they must react negatively to anything new or different.
Some of these dogs have experienced something traumatic or were never socialized or just have a softer personality and the busyness of the world overwhelms them. And over time their reactions and neurosis increase.
This 4-wk class provides you with the tools to set your anxious or fearful dog up for success and build their confidence.
We cover the milestones your dog needs to cross….can you step over them, can you walk toward them without them reacting (no lip licking, bowing, etc), can you pet them? over their heads as well as under their chins? Do they flinch?
Since anxious dogs often struggle in public situations, we offer these classes online only. Classes available beginning September 23, 2019.
