For intense fear and anxiety
While Fear Free strategies are designed to significantly lessen the anxiety of a veterinary
visit, some pets experience fear and anxiety so strong that they will struggle to avoid the care
But it doesn't have to be that way. We can provide individual training aimed at
lessening a pet's fears and making them more comfortable with medical and husbandry procedures. If
your pet pulls away, struggles, cries out, or even bites, they can be helped with our training.
We accomplish this by using the same positive methodologies relied on by assistance dog trainers
and zoos to produce real results. Using both classical and operant conditioning, we can help your
pet become an active participant in their healthcare.
We also provide puppy socialization classes for pups under 14 weeks old. In class, pups will
learn to play nicely with other dogs and start becoming comfortable with a range of people,
sights, and sounds. As a new owner, you will learn how to teach your puppy some basic life skills.
Our in house trainer, Lisa Flaum, is a graduate with distinction from the Karen Pryor Academy, and is also Fear Free Certified.
