Expanded Description:

Does your dog have a hard time exploring the world around him? Has his fear of things such as other dogs, people, new items, strange noises, etc. caused him to shut down during the learning process? This book focuses on teaching a wide variety of fun, basic tricks that can be taught to any dog, but with specific focus and instruction on how to teach these behaviors to pets that are suffering from fear or anxiety type issues. There are various sections throughout the book, including one with tricks to help your dog develop better coping mechanisms, a section on games to help with the desensitization and counter-conditioning process and a section on tricks to help your dog step out of their comfort zone and guide them to be a braver dog, willing to experience and try new things. Through fun tricks and games you will take your dog on a journey to empowerment, which is the most rewarding bonding experience you can share with your dog. This book is for anyone who works with dogs that have fear or anxiety issues, whether it be from abuse, neglect or genetic predisposition. Shelter and rescue workers, foster homes, trainers and most importantly the pet owner who is battling the trials and tribulations of training a fearful new family member can all benefit from learning how to use tricks and games to help your fearful dog open up and have fun during the training process.
