Freedom from FOMO: Overcoming Canine Frustration

Start Date: February 1, 2024
Registration Opens: January 22, 2024

Class Description

Does your dog frequently experience feelings of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) or frustration at the thought of being left out of all things fun?  Whether those feelings come up when you are training another dog or watching someone else’s dog doing something exciting, this class will help you teach your dog to work through the frustration and will leave you with a more thoughtful, confident, and quieter dog!

In this enriching class, we will address the common challenges that dogs face when it comes to feeling frustrated or left out. The curriculum is designed to empower both you and your dog with the knowledge and techniques needed to create a more peaceful and calm environment for your dog.

You will learn how to reduce arousal levels and give your dog the tools to cope with the big feelings. Understanding your dog’s emotional state will allow more effective communication and the ability to better set up your dog for success. We’ll cover how to create an engaging and fulfilling routine that keeps your dog occupied and content, even when you’re not around. Finally, you’ll learn how to encourage and train alternate behaviors to give your dog something to do other than express frustration.

Join me in this class and embark on a journey towards a happier and more confident dog!

PLEASE NOTE: This course is designed for dogs with big feelings of frustration, but not fear from separation anxiety.  If your dog is engaging in self-harm or extremely destructive behaviors resulting from intense anxiety or fear, please seek out the assistance of a qualified veterinary behaviorist. If you have any questions about whether or not your dog is appropriate for this class, please feel free to contact me.
