Life Skills for Shy/Fearful Dogs

Do you have a dog that is SHY? FEARFUL? TREMBLES? HIDES? During this time, we have not been able to properly socialize our dogs and this may show up as fear or shyness. This class is tailored for those dogs who are afraid and need help building their confidence. This is a virtual class for any dog that would not be suitable for an in-person class due to their shyness and fear. Our virtual classroom is perfect for this type of training.

Out of Isolation: Frolic or Fight?

Are you uneasy about greeting other dogs? Are you not sure if your dog or puppy is playing or fighting? Are you feeling unsure of how to read their body language? This is for puppy and dog guardians who want to learn to identify happy play time and avoid potential fights.
