Fear can be expressed in flight or fight. That means a dog may express their fear by running away from something, or running toward it. The latter usually defines fear aggression. In either case, we approach the fear the same way – we want to make the dog confident to alleviate the fear.
This lesson deals with a very skittish / fearful dog, Oliver. You’ll see the transformation in the lesson. This transformation comes primarily because we changed the way we handle the dog and the situation. I will state here that the dog is not “fixed.” This is a journey to transformation. It takes time, dedication and a lot of work. The dog has shown a slight change by fair exposure and communication.
The reason I put this lesson up in one video is because I believe you will learn a lot through the journey, that would have been missed if I broke it up into two lessons. that being said, it’s an extremely long lesson… so take your time to understanding it.
