shy, timid or cautious dogs avoid people, sounds, certain kinds of situations,
etc. that frighten them. Often it is a personality trait ingrained in their DNA, it can also be a learned behavior for their past. They may seem
depressed or disinterested and sometimes lunge or do barking displays to make
what they’re afraid of go further away. Signs of fearful, shy, timid or
cautious dogs may be one or all of the following:
1. Ears flattened back to the head.
2. Cowering posture.
3. Shying away from interactions with other dogs and/or people.
4. Tail tucked between the legs.
5. Panting or shaking.
6. Dilated, glassy eyes.
7. Skulking, pacing, hiding, or escaping.
8. Whining or barking.
9. Raised hackles.
10. Fear of eye contact.
11. Sneering, nipping or biting.
12. Submissive urination.
This class is designed for the dog that needs an especially calm, slower pace than that which may be found in Basic or Beginners Obedience. Class size will be kept small. Basic Obedience will be taught with a focus on confidence building and activities that promote self-esteem.
When coming to class make sure you have a few instruments to help you and your pet be successful:
1. A decent sized bag of high rewarding treats for your hungry dog.
2. A regular leash, four to six feet in length.
3. An easy walk harness.
