Fearful Fido / March16/ Raleigh- Registration
April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until April 20, 2022
This 7-week Behavior Modification class is for the dog who consistently reacts by showing fearful behaviors like trembling, whining, hiding, shutting down, snapping, or fear biting. The goal is to increase overall social confidence and help show you how to safely manage and support your fearful dog. Through reward-based training games and desensitization, we will help you build your dog’s confidence and create a positive environment to ease the fears of your shy companion.
Fearful Fido is designed to build self- confidence and will teach you how to help your fearful dog cope with and ultimately enjoy new experiences. This class will cover techniques and skills to help your dog deal with their fear. Classes deal with learning to read dog’s body language and understanding how to make your dog more comfortable and relaxed in different environments and around people and other dogs.
We will also work on desensitizing dogs to different triggers and creating positive associations with things they are normally scared of. Throughout class dogs will also participate in different activities to help boost their confidence. Our Raleigh classes are held outside in real life scenarios where we can slowly teach your canine that he can trust again in a safe conditioned environment.
