Helping Your Dog Overcome Fear of Objects Pt 1

A lot of us have rescued our agility dogs as pups or even full grown dogs complete with all their issues.

When fear is a big part of your dog’s life it is up to you to help them gain confidence step by step and day by day.

Donna Hill shows you how to use shaping and targeting to overcome fear of objects with your dog.

Please note she warns you to choose your treats carefully for each level of difficulty and environment.

If the value is too low the dog may not be motivated to participate and if too high the dog risks getting prematurely confident and thus loose trust in your reinforcer.
