Just another reminder about not forcing your dog to deal with scary stuff to a level greater than what they are comfortable with.
The technique of "flooding" (overwhelm them so that they get used to it) is high risk! It makes for great TV shows and appears to quickly resolve fears when it does work.
But it can backfire so easily and actually be traumatising to the point of causing even more fear.
Much better to let them go slowly, and get used to it on their own terms, rather than throw them in the deep end and hope they learn to swim!
If you have any questions or need help with your fearful dog, just get in touch. I'll happily show you a way to help your dog get over their fears without causing any trauma. ... See MoreSee Less
