The vast majority of existing dog training strategies which relate to canine fear and anxiety are designed to help ‘fearful’ dogs, but all dogs encounter a crisis of confidence at some point in their lives or face situations that test their resilience. How a dog copes with these life challenges and how their families interact with them, will determine everyone’s future success.

Victoria Stilwell will introduce BRAVE - a set of new essential dog training protocols which can be specifically adapted for all dogs regardless of their level of anxiety or fear.  (This will be an introduction only webinar with some examples, as BRAVE protocols are extensive. They will be available and accessed in future online courses designed for all dog lovers.)

Learning Objectives:

  • How a dog can be helped to face life challenges
  • Some tips on how families should interact with a nervous dog
  • An introduction to BRAVE dog training protocols 
  • Some examples of BRAVE dog training protocols and how and when they should be implemented
