Anxiety and the 4 Fs: Don't Ask Your Reactive Dog To Sit
Jul 18, 2021 Episode 9
Holly, Paws Up Dogs

We've all felt anxious or fearful many, many times during our lives and our dogs are no different. We're all hard wired to protect ourselves from perceived threats around us, however, the problem comes when our brain and body get confused and "protect" us against something that really means us no harm.

In this episode you'll hear:


- About the 4 Fs and how you can identify these in your dog and help them to feel better
- Why asking your dog to sit, down, or watch me when they are scared probably won't help them
- I also take you through one of my favourite training games, Apples, Oranges & Bananas. You can check this out here: https://app.searchie.io/watch/ZrDeE7J7DG

HAVE YOU GOT A DOG THAT YOU LOVE & ADORE BUT SOMETIMES YOU STRUGGLE A BIT WITH THEIR TRAINING?
