Fearful Fido  [sold out]

with Amber Batson – Veterinary Behaviourist

Sunday 2nd June 2019: 10am – 4pm, Redhill, Surrey – tickets £70 per person [sold out].

This one-day seminar is aimed at dog owners and professionals wanting a clearer understanding of how we can help dogs to cope better with scary experiences or even to learn something new following past events.

The day will cover what happens inside the body and brain when a dog has a scary experience and what are the best techniques to use in the moment to reduce that fear. It will also cover what the dog may actually learn in a frightening situation and where that learning gets stored in the brain. Once such a memory is made, can we teach the dog a different memory of a future, similar situation … what will affect his ability to learn something new and how can we practically set up training situations to be most successful.

For dogs in long term, fearful states such as chronic anxiety or multiple phobias, what else may help them live enjoyable lives or learn new things in the future?
