Treat Retreat
Instructor: Nancy Reyes
Saturday, October 11, 2014 9am-12pm
This workshop is specifically designed for dogs who are worried about people.
When working with fearful dogs, a common pitfall is working too fast and too close,
thus making the dog more fearful. During this clinic your dog will learn how
to tolerate people through careful and highly reinforcing interactions.
The goal is to help change your dogs’ mindset about people.
Treat Retreat is a great skill builder for your shy or worried dog when it comes
to meeting people. Based on Suzanne Clothier’s Treat Retreat Protocol.
