PREVENTING DEVELOPMENT OF MALADAPTIVE FEAR

Personal guidance

by a fearful dogs expert

Puppies younger than 12 weeks old are at highest risk for becoming fearful as a result of seemingly small experiences, but dogs at all ages can become fearful, sometimes as a result of experiences big or small that they found traumatizing.

Whether you're a private dog owner, a shelter/rescue or animal control worker, or someone who works with dogs in one of myriad other capacities,  learning how to prevent fear will save you time and money and save your dog from having to carry the heavy weight of distress, fear, and anxiety.
