Working with a dog that is nervous around humans

Very often we deal with dogs that are afraid or nervous around humans.  One great way to work with this is to teach the dog that if they give the person at the end of the leash a signal that we will get them out of the situation.  We look for what are called "calming signals" as a sign that the dog is not comfortable in the situation and then take them out of the situation.  Here is some work with Romeo, the Chihuahua.

Jake, our foster dog!

Meet the Collins Family's new foster! Jake is a one year old neutered male Ridgeback/Boxer mix who is up for adoption. He is housebroken, crate trained and wonderful with dogs and all ages of people. The only reason he isn't in his previous home is that he wants to play with the cat too much. Please contact us or One Tail at a Timeto find out more about adopting. There will be lots of training incentives for him as well!
