Pawsability Dog Behaviour and Training

Workshops > Fear and Anxiety (and Reactivity) in Dogs

Next Training Day - Sun 17th March £25 / £75(£100)

Who's this for?

We will be discussing the reasons behind anxiety and fear in dogs - past, present and future, and how to help them overcome their fears.

This dog behaviour talk covers:

The behaviour workshop then pulls all this together to build individual behaviour modification plans.

Here's a wee video about the talk and workshop

Here's some more information course.

Part 1 is a talk which covers

Part 2 is a practical workshop with a smaller group.

This helps everyone to build individual behaviour programmes. Building on the knowledge gained from the talk, we will spend time analysing specific problem behaviours, and individual lifestyles. Each person will go away with personalised worksheets and learn how to work through the plans and build on these are time progresses. These plans outline small, achievable steps, each moving you forward with your dogs behaviour problems and helping you reach your training goals.

There are 3 primary aims of these Fear and Anxiety in Dogs educational day

1. To help you to better understand why your dog is not coping in particular situations

2. To learn what to do to help them - and when and how.

3. To help you to learn how to have the resilience to cope with helping your lovely but difficult dog.

4. To allow you to discuss your problems with others, gain their support and realise that many people are struggling with the same problems that you are.

This is for people only - to help you plan out what needs to be done, with no dogs to be distracting us or to worry about.

These fun, friendly and highly interactive sessions will help you to

There is always plenty of time for general Q&A at the end, PLUS - there is the Facebook group for on going questions and discussion. Each workshop (full day) attendee also benefits from 1 hours free phone support.

Of course, there are some situations that are truly complex or that benefit personal 1-1 attention. Please see here for details on booking a private behaviour therapy session. These workshops allow you the option of choosing to work by yourself or enlist more help. They are useful as a precursor to 1-1 sessions or you can ofcourse choose to get 1-1 help straight away.

The tutor is Anna Patfield, a qualified and experienced Dog Behaviourist working in The Highlands and Aberdeenshire - Read more about Anna and her behaviour philosophy here.

  • how to build a behaviour programme
  • and how to work through that process
  • how to support yourself
  • and then post-workshop support via a chat group

The whole session is very much an interactive process.
