Description:

Some dogs need a little help. Some dogs are afraid, or excited, or reactive. Dogs that “don’t listen” and “go crazy” don’t live the lives we –- or they –- want. Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out can change that. Simple steps and an accessible, conversational tone from award-winning, internationally-known trainer Laura VanArendonk Baugh CPDT-KA KPACTP make calming the agitated dog not only possible, but pleasant. Inside you’ll learn how to:

    • Achieve change in short, simple training sessions of a minute or less
    • Maximize the effects of natural brain chemistry
    • Know when to call in medical help
    • “Clean up” unreliable behaviors in both overexcited sport dogs and pets at home
    • Recognize how fear, aggression, and excitement are variants of the same root problem

The conversational tone is both informative and fun — very accessible, and it feels like the reader has a consulting trainer standing at her shoulder! Bring your dog from emotional to thoughtful, and enjoy a calmer, more enriched life with your best friend.
