Bravery Boost with Alex & Lila!
Would you like your dog to be happier and more confident? This workshop is for you if you feel that your puppy could be a little braver, if s/he is unsure in new situations, shy of strangers or avoiding noisy bin lorries, if you are having trouble keeping your dog calm and comfortable at the vet’s, or getting their focus and motivation outside.
When? 7th Aprill at 10:30 – 13.00
**Please arrive for 10:00 am to set up.
Venue: Pawz and Bonez - Dog Day Care
Unit 31, Lower Mount Farm, Long Lane, Cookham, Berkshire, SL6 9EE
This workshop is suitable for puppies from four months of age, as well as for young dogs up to two years old. Places are limited (maximum eight handler-dog teams), so our two instructors can maximise individual attention. Be prepared to name up to three things you would like to learn about/work on.
Alex and Lila will discuss the theory behind why dogs sometimes lack confidence and the scientific background of fearful behaviours. They will share tips on how to build trust and bond with your dog, including reading body language and practising exercises to boost their confidence using natural drives and motivation. These exercises will help you:
*Understand your dog
*Build trust and relationship
*Take the discomfort out of vet visits
*Help increase your dog’s confidence in new places, new situations and with new people
*Help your dog overcome shyness to touch or sound sensitivity
*Increase focus, engagement and motivation to give 100% when working
*Overcome fear of failure when working
