Rescue your Dog From Fear
Tried-and-true Techniques to Help your Dog Feel SecureBook - 2015
When dealing with previously abused or naturally skittish dogs, it's easy to get frustrated. Often, all we want is to tell our beloved pets there is no need to be afraid. When Peggy Swager adopted two mill dogs from her local rescue center, all the books in the world couldn't help her ease her new pups. But what she was able to accomplish using her past experience training horses was astounding. This book brings to dog owners and dog trainers newer and proven ways to help resolve fear issues in their dogs, from being around people to aversion to being in a crate or traveling in a car. From explaining the root of his timid behavior, to handling aggression and adjusting your own tone of voice, you'll have all the information needed to make your companion feel safe and loved. Valuable for the average dog owner, rescue organizations, and dog trainers who have not had success with their fearful dogs.
