What does Fear Free mean to you? Well, does your dog get stressed out going to the vet? Are there issues with grooming?

We can help with that! By teaching dogs consent behaviors, such as a chin rest, we can help make routine exams, vaccinations, and husbandry care much less stressful for everyone involved. The goal is to limit the need for restraint by making any procedure that needs to be done as consensual, stress and FEAR free as possible.

Ollie here is one of our star clients with his chin rest! Before we started working with Ollie, he was a bit of a challenge at the vet, especially when it came to getting vaccinations. After only a few weeks into his training package, Ollie has demonstrated that he is ready to start practicing this new skill of his at an actual vet clinic. During our last in home session, we were able to start utilizing real needles and as you can see Ollie remained happy and relaxed the entire time!
