Dogs can develop a variety of fears, anxieties and phobias to many different things. Living with a dog who is fearful or phobic can be extremely difficult.

Owners often feel at a loss to help their pets, unable to find a way to soothe their dog’s anxieties. Unfortunately for owners and dogs, untreated fears and anxiety get worse over time.

 

Thankfully for both owners and dogs there is a way to help turn even the most severe phobias around through the use of desensitization and counter-conditioning.

Desensitization and counter-conditioning is an effective method that has been used to help countless dogs suffering from a wide range of phobias. All issues with behavior are easier to treat if the treatment is started early – don’t wait until your dog has developed severe fear issues, implement a treatment plan at the first sign of trouble.
