How to use sound socialization/desensitisation/conditioning to help their dog overcome fears/phobias/excitement.


  • Open to Everyone!


In this course we will look at some of the ways that fear, specifically a fear of sounds, can impact on your dog's happiness; and what you can do about it. Over ~30mins we will look at some of the science behind sound socialisation/desensitisation, why your dog might be fearful, when to start taking action to avoid fears, and how to train your dog to help them overcome fears. We also present a FREE tool, which we developed, that you can use to train your dog at home.

You can help your dog overcome their fears and it isn't a complicated process. It takes a little understanding, time & patience... but your dog will thank you for it.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who has an anxious dog, or wants to learn more about dog training.
