Welcome to our Shy & Fearful Dog Classes!

Our Shy & Fearful Dog class is four weeks long and takes place at four different locations. This class is for the dog that is fearful of humans, animals, noises, or other things in their environment. We show you how to manage your dog’s surroundings and help them build confidence. This is not a class for reactive dogs; those are dogs that bark and lunge at people, animals and other things in the environment.

  • Contact Laura via email or phone to be included in this class. 

  • Returning students are welcome to join us in any of the classes.

Continuted Education
After the first Shy Dog Class is completed we will have various individual classes set so the student can register for each individual class they would like to come to. This gives the student & dog the opportunity to work with others that have been through the class and continue building confidence in both the dog and handler.
