Why Punishing a Dog’s Fear Doesn’t Work
Dogs can express fear in a variety of ways.
Some dogs, like Rex on the right, express their fear by shrinking back and trying to be invisible.
Others, like Jazzy in this article from our Newsletter Archives, show their anxiety by trying to act tough and scare away the thing that scares them.
Both of these dogs can be rehabilitated through the same positive training methods.
