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.
