Understanding Fearfulness

Fearfulness is a common issue in dogs - but the root of the issue may be more complex than just a fear response.

Fearfulness is a common issue among dogs, often stemming from past trauma, lack of socialization, or genetics. Understanding the signs and triggers of fear is essential to effectively address and manage this behavior.

Signs of Fearfulness

  • Avoidance: Dogs may avoid people, places, or situations that trigger fear.
  • Excessive Shaking or Trembling: Fear can manifest physically through shaking or trembling.
  • Cowering or Hiding: Dogs may cower or hide to avoid perceived threats.
  • Excessive Barking or Aggression: Fear can sometimes manifest as barking or aggressive displays.

Our Approach to Training

Overcoming fearfulness in dogs isn't as easy as exposing them to triggers. It takes training and patience (and love).
