Tanya's Training Tips

The Scaredy Dog

Often mistaken for a variety of other personality traits don’t be fooled!
Most dogs that: lunge at people or other dogs, snarl, snap, whimper, shake and bark are usually almost always scared out of their minds!
These behaviors mostly labeled aggression are actually fear based your dog has learnt that acting in this way people or other pets will go away. This only cements the idea that to get the scary thing away I need to act tough, and for some dogs shaking, hiding and whimpering works in the same way as most people and animals do not normally like approaching what seems to be a ferocious dog or whimpering mess!
