  • Preventing fears and anxieties

    Dogs feel safest when they are around their owners but, like any other animal, they are often cautious of anything that could pose a threat. This fight or flight instinct is a natural one, but sometimes they can over-react, and need help to find the right balance. You can’t always be there to keep them feeling safe and happy, so it’s better for them if you can teach them to have some degree of emotional independence.
