We start with a Zoom consult to go over your shy, fearful dog’s behavior history and your top concerns and priorities. I give you training tips to implement right away and sketch out a confidence building game plan.
Then we do 3 training sessions. I teach you to read your dog’s fearful body language so you’ll detect even the subtlest signs of stress. Your dog’s game plan will be a mix of my favorite confidence building approaches, including…
Nosework & scent games
Tricks like high five and “touch.”
Life skills, like recall & attention on you
Desensitization & counterconditioning
Enrichment puzzles & games
Consult + three in-person sessions: $600 Additional sessions to work on advanced skills: $150/hour
This is one of the 4,000 shy, fearful beagles rescued from the notorious Envigo breeding facility in 2023. They were neglected and underweight and had never been outdoors or lived in a house. With plenty of compassion and confidence building, they learned to cope and eventually thrive in their new homes. I was fortunate to work with 20 of these incredibly resilient dogs.
