Desensitising Sessions is slowly changing your dogs perspective on triggers. This can be reactivity through fear or excitement. The way a dog reacts to the world should always be as calm as possible.

 

For many dogs this is not the case.

 

We set up scenarios or go out into the world where your dog has controlled (where possible) exposure to these triggers and teach you ways to manage your dogs reactivity.

 

These sessions are held wherever the triggers are: your home, work, park, shopping centres, near roads, etc. 

These sessions can help with reactivity, fear, anxiety, resource guarding and much more.

Slowly exposing the dogs to triggers that cause their anxiety issues to desensitise them. While doing this, creating a fear free positive experience by distracting them with games, treats, training, toys, hugs and enjoyable moments. 

 

Then we use counter conditioning to change your dogs negative triggers to positive ones.

Desensitising sessions help with many different emotional issues in both dogs and the owners. As many dog owners develop anxiety when they know their dog is becoming anxious.

 

We give you tools to manage both your dog's emotional state and your own. Allowing you to learn to settle, thus creating a more relaxed environment for both you and your dog.  

Power Pooches has helped over 100 dogs with a range of anxiety issues and given owners a range of tools to be able to enjoy taking their dogs out in public again.
