Does your dog have balls? No, I don’t mean Alpha This, Alpha That kind of balls … balancing balls.

This goes beyond getting fit, being positive and having fun. It desensitizes dogs to sights, sounds, smells and “things” that they will encounter in the real world.It teaches balance and relaxation.

Awareness Centered Training - ACT is the foundation for many potential therapy dogs! We have a passion for family dogs, and are always encouraging potential therapy dog teams to consider sharing their dogs with others. It is an educationally enriching experience for dog and human.

It is important to teach our dogs in a variety of environments and look for opportunities to introduce them to things that might be scary - while pairing it with a positive association - also know as counter-conditioning - creating a relaxed, more calming and safe association.

Wear silly hats, glasses and gradually introduce gestures and movement to your dogs (be silly while smiling).

Be mindful that the tone of your voice and body language are very important to dogs who are continually observing US. Calm will invoke calm, while chaos will - well - you know the answer.

Canine Desensitization CD’s like Positively’s (Victoria Stilwell) and Through a Dog’s Ears  (Joshua Leeds and Lisa Spector) work remarkably well to introduce your dogs to noises, while associating with positive interactions and healthy treats. The calm music is good to play when you leave them alone.
