This DVD is a live recording of a presentation done at the 2007 Clean Run Instructor Conference.
Many agility dogs are generally fearful or become fearful during training or trialing due to specific incidences. Some dogs work through fear easily while others need careful intervention. What does fear look like? It's not always as easy to recognize as you might think. Does your foundation training program inoculate your student's dogs or leave them vulnerable? What techniques do you use to help a student who already has a fearful dog? This session will provide you with an overview of what fear looks like, how to prevent it, and how to decrease it.
