It’s ALL Important!

Rehearsal is powerful, so if your dog is repeatedly put in challenging situation before they have the skills to make the right choices or rehearse the best response, you’re setting them up for failure.

In the early stages of addressing that struggle the approach is to intentionally take your dog out of situations, deliberately making their world smaller.

Making your dog’s world smaller and limiting their exposure to difficult situations allows you to reshape their brain. By playing games that build optimism and disengagement outside of the situations your dog struggles with, you teach them how to handle the situation appropriately.
