About the event

BRAVE - your nervous/anxious dog

This 2 hour workshop is designed to show you how to boost your dog's confidence. 

A dog who lacks confidence can

  • Bark and lunge towards dogs
  • Bark and lunge towards people
  • Be fearful of novelty, such as sounds, different surfaces, sudden changes in the environment
  • Lack confidence with being handled
  • Can find new or busy environments stressful, and therefore affect responsiveness to training
  • Can trigger stack quickly, meaning they may react to things they don't normal react to
  • Can find training itself stressful and give up easily rather than trying harder
  • And much more!

We'll be covering a variety of exercises that you can easily replicate at home to continue building your dogs confidence, such as:

  • Exploring novelty such as different surfaces that make noise, wobble, move etc
  • Paws up - teaching your dog to put his paws up on various surfaces on cue
  • Fun exercises to promote body awareness
  • Middle - the portable safe place
  • Free shaping - building your dogs confidence to try new things
  • Engage-disengage exercises to change emotional responses to triggers in the environment
  • Handling  exercises to help your dog to release stress/tension
  • Dispelling the myths of socialisation
  • Reading body language
  • Promoting low arousal to aid better choices
