No one likes to be scared and your dog is no exception! Living in an ‘alien’ world, dogs are exposed to many things that are ‘unnatural’ to them and so it is understandable that fears and phobia’s develop from time to time.
Unfortunately we cannot reason with our dogs and explain that a dustbin or toaster or fireworks pose no threat to him and so we have to employ other behavioural methods to reduce the fear reaction and desensitise the dog to the stimulus.
This can be tricky and the longer the dog has suffered the phobia the more difficult it is to resolve.
I can help to make this world a little less scary for your fearful pooch!
