The Value of Feeling Safe
The first of these confidences we are going to explore is the Safety Confidence - the belief or feeling that they will be safe, calm, and comfortable in regular day-to-day activities.
This one is very important because you can’t begin to train the other confidences unless your dog feels safe in the training area.
In order to learn how to develop their feeling of safety you have to be able to read their basic signals. So this class is going to involve elements of basic canine body language as how that can look different in different breeds. We will also be looking at desensitization to scary items using distance and high rate, high value reinforcement. Then we will look at how you can support your dog by helping them feel safe with you as their teammate working through challenges together.
