The vast majority of existing dog training strategies which relate to canine fear and anxiety are designed to help ‘fearful’ dogs, but all dogs encounter a crisis of confidence at some point in their lives. For example, a breeding dog rescued from a puppy mill will likely have specific challenges to overcome, especially when compared to a dog that has been raised with a family. But every single companion and working dog will face situations that test their resilience. How a dog copes with these life challenges and how their families interact with them, will determine everyone’s future success. Victoria Stilwell will reveal a set of new essential dog training protocols which can be specifically adapted for all dogs regardless of their level of anxiety or fear. From the confident canine to the most fearful pup, every dog requires some level of support at some point in their life, and these protocols can be utilized to help all dogs successfully negotiate any challenge that lies in their path.
