Join me for 1-2 hours of good information to help trainers and owners learn how best to help their dogs struggling with fear and anxiety.

The information in these online presentations is based on what we know about how behavior works so we can train a challenging population of dogs efficiently.,

Working With Extreme Fear

We need to stop saying and thinking that dogs are not motivated by food. Instead we need consider why they are not motivated to eat. 

Unless a dog is able and willing to take food we offer them, we cannot begin training using force free, fear free or pain free training methods. Some dogs may be able to engage in play, but many dogs we cannot.

Getting started with a dog who is too inhibited or aggressive to interact with is challenging but we need to get started with a dog, somehow, without scaring or stressing them more. This seminar will outline how to get started with a dog who is not able to take food from you. 

We will discuss classical counter conditioning, how it works and how we apply it to be most effective in changing how a dog feels. We’ll also look at how to build a step by step plan to reach our goal of teaching dogs to eat food we hand or toss to them. Until we have this behavior on board our options for using positive reinforcement to train are limited.
