Fear & Conflict


Many of the dogs we see in consultation or as trainers have conflicted emotions – they seem to want to visit with other dogs (for instance) at the same time that they’re afraid of them.   We also see many dogs who are afraid of other people or dogs.  In this discussion, we’ll consider the differences between these two types of motivations, and what can be done to modify their behavior enough to satisfy their guardians.    We’ll also discuss helping to teach guardians how to accept the dogs they have, instead of wanting the dogs they don’t’ have.
