Fear Free Program
Our Fear Free training program uses a combination of helping your dog make new associations to things she finds scary, teaching care-assisting behaviors so your dog can participate in his care, and things dogs and people can do to feel more relaxed during stressful situations. We teach gentle handling techniques, ways to help your dog make new associations with things that were fearful to him in the past, and how to focus on positive, fun, relaxing things in stressful situation. Our program is based on what we have learned from FearFreePets.com training and certification program for dog trainers.
