 The Fear and its Fallout- Aggression and Anxiety

Sylmar, CA (Near Burbank)
25 miles from Los Angeles
1 hour from Orange County

 Fear is the most primitive and necessary of all emotions – but it’s also the one that interferes most with the lives of us and our companions.  Fear can be the reason your clients dog is aggressive to other dogs, to men, or to children, or it can cause anxiety that wrecks havoc on our client’s homes. This workshop covers the causes of fear, the body language of fear and some ways we can help our dogs overcome this most prevalent of issues.
