Why does your nervous dog lick its lips? What does it mean when your timid dog freezes? Is your anxious dog’s blinking rate important?
Judy Moore returns to it’s a dog’s world with her new Learning How to Positively Help the Shy or Fearful Dog seminar offering answers to the above questions and more! With the use of a positive training approach this seminar has been created with a focus on bite prevention. Shy or fearful dogs can become offensive in order to deal with their fear. Being unaware of your dog’s apprehensiveness may place them into situations where, in your dog’s mind, safety overrides all good decision making.
Attend this seminar and learn:
- what “safe zone” training is
- the use of distance canine body handling cues (Sophia Yin’s Low Stress Handling Program)
- importance of changing stimulus, distance, approach and movement
- how shy and fearful dogs generalize their fears and how to have better communication with them about their fears, concerns and worries
- renowned canine behaviorist, Suzanne Clothier’s treat and retreat methods that reduce dogs fears and helps bring them back to making good decisions
- stress signals for both you and your dog via body language, body posture, weight distribution, facial tension and tail positioning
