Dear Dogwise Customer,
Fear Factor. Sounds like something associated with Halloween, doesn't it? However fear in dogs - whether from shyness, mistreatment by owners, or encounters with aggressive dogs - underlies a lot of the behavioral problems that owners and trainers encounter and have to try to deal with. Fortunately there are an increasing number of books and DVDs on the market now that address the causes of fear in dogs and the best ways to help dogs overcome it. Here are a few:
Working With Fearful Dogs Seminar DVD by Nicole Wilde. From the
author of the best-selling Help For Your Fearful Dog, a five plus
hour seminar on how to recognize fear and stress signals, how to
build confidence, and a review of desensitization and
Scaredy Dog! (book) and Scaredy Dog! DVD by
Ali Brown. How to diagnose and rehabilitate your fear-based reactive dog.
Lots of sound advice and practical exercises to reduce the fear factors
underlying the behaviors.
Cautious Canine by Patricia McConnell. One of our all time best
sellers, this short and inexpensive book was one of the first to
recognize the role of fear in canine behavior and offer solutions to
deal with it. If you are a trainer, this is the book you should
recommend to students who have "shy" dogs. Great information
presented in a way the average dog owner can understand and act upon.
