From Cautious to Confident:
Overcoming Fear and Shyness Through Scent Work

Introducing "From Cautious to Confident: Overcoming Fear and Shyness Through Scent Work.” a transformative six-week class designed to help your furry companion conquer their fears and build confidence through the power of scent.


In this unique and interactive class, we create a safe and supportive environment where your dog can thrive and grow. Our two experienced trainers understand the challenges faced by shy and fearful dogs, and they will work together to guide your canine companion through a carefully crafted program that focuses on scent work.

Scent work is a natural instinct for dogs and taps into their incredible olfactory abilities. By using their noses to search for their favorite foods or toys, dogs gain a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, boosting their self-confidence along the way. Our class will introduce your dog to a variety of scent-based challenges, gradually increasing the difficulty level as their confidence grows.

Through positive reinforcement techniques and personalized attention, our trainers will help your dog develop essential skills such as focus, problem-solving, and decision-making. As they progress in their scent work journey, you will witness a remarkable transformation in your dog's overall confidence and demeanor.

 

Throughout the course, you and your dog will learn:

1. Understanding Fear and Shyness: Gain insights into the underlying causes of fear and shyness in dogs and how scent work can help alleviate these issues.

2. Introduction to Scent Work: Learn the basics of scent work using your dog’s favorite foods or toys and learn to see and read the signals that your dog is always giving you while searching or doing anything else.


3. Building Confidence through Scent Work: Engage your dog's senses and gradually expose them to new and challenging scent-based tasks, helping them overcome their fears and grow in confidence.

4. Positive Reinforcement Training: Discover effective training techniques that use positive reinforcement to foster trust, encourage exploration, and reinforce desired behaviors.

5. Focus and Distraction Management: Teach your dog to stay focused on the task at hand, even in the face of distractions, helping them navigate stressful situations with ease.

6. Graduation and Beyond: Celebrate your dog's progress as they graduate from the program, equipped with the skills and confidence to face the world with a newfound sense of bravery and resilience.
