The Novice Dog

Working With A Sensitive Dog

10 Steps Easy

Masterclass Details

There are a variety of things that can go wrong with your working dog or gundog, knowing how to prevent problem behaviours, or, how to remedy them is very useful.

If there hasn't been sufficient or correct socialisation as a puppy, you may find your young gundog is fearful or lacks in confidence.

Sometimes things happen which are out of your control which can lead to issues like sound sensitivity or a reluctance to retrieve, or even your dog becoming fearful in general.

Working with a nervous, sensitive, or, fearful dog can be challenging, but, it can be so rewarding when you overcome issues.
