Training that makes husbandry tasks pleasant.png

Do you enjoy clipping your dog's nails or do you avoid it like the plague?

It's hard isn't it? It causes us to feel fear because we might accidentally hurt our dog. It causes us to feel guilt for not clipping nails on a regular basis and it causes us anxiety. On top of all that our dogs can be fearful, stressed out and equally upset about the process.

In puppy class last week, I demonstrated how my Hooley files her own nails on a scratch board.  

There was an audible gasp!

Immediately everyone got it. Nail care not only doesn’t have to be scary, it can also be fun. When the dog has control over the procedure & it demonstrates voluntary participation, the impossible becomes so achievable.

Scratch board training is an alternative to nail clipping or using a Dremel tool.

But there are other husbandry skills dogs need too!

Maybe you have a dog that doesn’t like
• Brushing
• Having its eyes cleaned or medicated
• Having its ears cleaned or medicated
• Going to the Vet office
• Having any grooming or care procedures done

Then our Fear Free Cooperative Care Class is for you.

Procedures for Veterinary Visits, Grooming & Routine care can be positive, relaxed, stress & fear free.

Trust is built by giving the dog the option to say "No Thank You", "too scary", "I'm not ready yet" and this choice not only builds trust but it also makes your dog an active, cooperative member of the training process.
