Loves his bed more than ever. As the parent of an anxious dog, I’m wondering if this is because Kobe’s bed has been with him since we adopted him. It’s his safe space. It’s what he knows. Others may say he’s just being super cute and getting comfy. Who knows 🤷🏽‍♀️ #positivetraining #clickertraining #dogtraining #dogbehaviour #dogtips #fearfuldog #counterconditioning #anxiousdog #nervousdog #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #dogsofinstgram #dog #adoptdontshop #dogsofbondi #poundpuppy #fearfuldogs #reactivedog #reactivedogsunite #dogsofinsta #dogsofinstagram #workingdog #shepherdmix #shepherdsofinstagram #kelpiecross #mydog #mydogiscutest #muttsofinstagram

Rufus was described as a dog who was reactive to “everything” when he was dropped off. This is Rufus in a crazy carnival with lots of loud noises, a big crowd of people and dogs. Please take at a look at the decisions he made after some training.

DOG GOT MORE BURGER SHARES! DOG HAS NEVER LOVED ANYTHING AS MUCH AS DOG LOVES BURGERS! Mom Here - Artemis is still joining us for burger night. I have a friend from Tennessee who is up to visit Artemis right now. She fostered her for a couple of months when Artemis needed surgery but I had to travel for work so they are old friends. She wanted to get a chance to celebrate with Artemis as well as say goodbye. She doesn't get to visit often as she lives so far away from us in New York. The reality of having some people start to say their goodbyes is hard but we are trying to keep things light and fun overall. These photos crack me up with her crazy, wild eyes and these are the fun things to focus on. #dogsofinstagram #muttsofinstagram #seniordog #rescuedog #reactivedog #anxiousdog #dogsinneedofspace #caninelymphoma #caninecancer

I think I'm as close as I've ever come to saying 'I can't do this.' This has been so hard already. Piper got her stitches out, but she got a Penrose drain put in. She's got a double ear infection. She might have allergies. She's not eating well and has lost weight. She does the limp noodle trick when I try to change her shirt and runs away from me if I don't sneak attack her with the ointment. I have to yell to get her to stop licking. Snap to get her not to jump or run. We're both so tired of this. I'm running on fumes and it sucks and this next week can't go by fast enough.

⚖️ Punishing anxiety-driven (respondent) behaviours in dogs is a slippery slope. • 🐶 We deal with a LOT of dogs suffering from anxiety related issues. • 🚫 It’s often the case that the owners of these dogs have sought help in the past - and that help hasn’t been, well, helpful. • ⚙️ It grinds my gears when I hear some of the strategies people are given to work. • 🎥 So I got my video on this morning and did a couple of takes - both on the same topic. • 🤷‍♂️ I couldn’t decide which to post, so here they both are. • 🎼 Turn on the sound and tune in to hear it for yourself...there’s the odd swear word so keep the volume down around the kiddies. • #dogtraining #dogtrainer #anxiousdog #dogsofinstagram #dogsofmelbourne #dogsofinsta

Meet Miss Molly... isn’t she beautiful 🥰🌸 Molly needs company when her mum & dad pop out, she suffers from anxiety as many doggies can (especially rescues like Molly). When anxious, Molly pines in silence for her Mum & Dad and won’t move from the spot she is in, she just requires reassurance. Other dogs may pant a lot, drool, whine or whimper, bark, can be quite restless, ears are usually back, tail may be tucked under, dog might cower or hide. Each dog will react differently and show their own signs, as a pet owner it is key to know your own dogs signs of panic or anxiety. #anxiousdog #poodle #poodlesofinstagram #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #petsitter #petsitterlife

Do you have a dog who loves to whine for attention? . . . “Sit on the dog” is a good way to help a dog who loves to whine because he could not stand not getting the attention he wants. . . . It is a very simple exercise. . . . I sit down, step on the leash with just enough slack so the dog will feel some pressure until he chooses to go into a down. Once he downs, l will make sure there is no tension on the leash. . . . I don’t give the dog any command. I basically ignore the dog completely. . . . If the dog gets up, he will feel tension around his neck and eventually he will choose to go back down again because that is the only way he can release the tension he feels. That is why it is important to make sure the dog is not feeling any tension once he is in a down. . . . This exercise is not about down or down stay or anything like that. A dog who has never been taught the down command can do this. . . . This is about showing the dog how to feel more content without getting attention toon and about how to make the choice to relax on his own. . . . When l first started this with Rufus, he would whine and keep trying to get up so he could get on the sofa/my lap. . . . As we keep practising this, his whining has greatly subsided and he can now go down sideways and relax, even around other dogs.

As most of you know, our website has been down for the last month. After a year of successfully operating using Paypal as a payment processor, they are no longer willing to process our transactions. We are a small business that is family owned and operated, and this could have been a potential disaster for us, and our loyal customers, many of whom I know by name. But our IG family has continued to show support, spread awareness, and offer advice. I just wanted to say thank you for making this time as least stressful as possible. The good news is, we found a payment processor that is willing to work with us, and should have everything in place to launch our brand new website next week. I’m so excited for you guys to see it!!

Rufus used to be very vocal. This was taken when he saw me this morning after l just woke up. You can see that l just turned the light on. Rufus and his new friends, Nova and Sky were not wearing any collar at all. Little moments such this is very important. How you start the day sets the tone for how your dog perceives you, which lays the foundation of your relationship with your dog. Many dogs who have exhibited some behavioural problems are very jacked up and over stimulated when they see their owners first thing in the morning. Very often, the owners would reward this mindset by snuggling with the dog in bed, or giving the dog lots of affection and attention in various manners. The “first impression” you make with your dog in the beginning of the day is like the first impression you make when you meet a new person. If you want your dog to be calm, submissive, trusting, engaged, and respectful, please work on building a good impression based on these attributes. It will make everything much easier for the rest of your day. Thank you.

It's been 74 days since my last proper walk without getting frightened. This week I've only let mum take me as far as the other side of the road unless it's very early morning then I'll maybe do a short walk around the estate where it's quiet. #mynameisetta #imafraid #nolongwalks #trafficscaresme #peoplescareme #anxiousdog #fearfuldog #dontlikescooters #dontlikedrones #dontlikebusystreets #dontlikebuildingsites #singaporespecialsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinstagramsg #bepatientwithme

Rufus used to scream, bark, and cower when a person he didn’t know very well approached him. We are teaching him to enjoy being handled by people he does not know very well by using people who will handle him gently so he will look at this as a positive experience. In this clip, you can see how he allowed my daughter to rub his tummy.

This sweet goober is my buddy Cooper. Cooper is in need of a new home - a home with a skilled handler that can help Cooper continue on the journey of learning he's been on for the past few years. Coop is a total love bug, super snuggler, and LOVES to play with toys. He also struggles with anxiety, and can be reactive to unknown people and passing dogs. He has come SO far, though, and he is able to enjoy walking and stay engaged with his person when most dogs pass by. Please let me know if you are interested or know someone that may be. I can put you in touch with his current owner and give you more info on his behavioral needs. I'd also be happy to do a free consultation with his adopter to help get them on the right track with him! at Santa Rosa, California

The other night Baldur nosed open the shower curtain while I was taking a shower. I was shocked that he willingly investigated running water and pushed a curtain out of his way. Tonight, while I was cleaning, he jumped into and out of the tub multiple times. While the curtain was closed, his mat to make it less slippery wasn't in there, the tub was wet and without me plying him with treats! He's really learning to love the tub! This is huge progress for a dog that was terrified of the concept of even being near our tub. We were taking a break from bath training, but I think Baldur wants to get back to it! . . . . . . . . #labmix #blacklabmix #anxiousdog #fearfuldog #reactivedogsunite #dogsofinstagram #blackdog #forcefreetraining #forcefree #fearfree #fearfreepets #fearfreehappyhomes #cooperativecare #cooperativecaninecare #positivetraining #positivedogtraining #rewardbasedtraining #sciencebasedtraining #goodboy #positivetraining #jerseydog #nervousdog #gooddog #peanutbutterlover #bravedog #fearfreetraining #baldurthegoober #dogempowerment #confidencebuilding #prouddogmom #progress

Kai loves to be with me as much as possible, and as close as possible. in public places, crowded places and while visiting people, it's not always possible to sit on my lap.. The old stroller was very unstable and he didn't feel safe in it anymore.. Today he's got a new one.. The stroller arrived.. And this pics were taken 5 min later... ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ Thank you for making it possible, @naadjezwart 😘 . . . . #Kai #bestdogever #huaweip20lite #forcefreetraining #reactivedogsunite #rescuedog #reactivedog #dontshopadopt #forcefreedogtraining #blackdogsrule #smalldog #cookiefeedernotpackleader #chihuahuamix #perfectehond #kingkai #communicationiskey #dogsofinstagram #ilovemydog #dogstagram #anxiousdog #positivedogtraining #adoptdontshop #trust #italktomydog #positivetraining #smalldog #truelove #doglife #wawa #knuffeldiefje

Piper is denning... Is that a word? She's so miserable. :( I can't wait till she gets better. As we go through these issues, I feel like I was MEANT to be with her. From the cancer to the surgery, the ear infection, allergies, and now the drain... Another person might've had to give up on Piper. I'm so thankful that I've got the time, money, and patience to see her through this. I'm so sad, though. I can't wait till my doggo can run and play again.

Golden goddess, natural beauty, blonde bombshell Stella is doing very well in training at @instinctdogtrainingnnj. The kennel staff loves her and describes her as a “wiggle butt, silly puppy, sweetie, wild thang” 🤣 Stella had a rough beginning in life (swipe to read her story), but with consistency, structure, and routine she is doing very well and finally learning how to be a dog. Stella is extremely loving and affectionate with people she knows. She is smart and very receptive to training. We are looking for a longterm #foster starting early May to continue working with her and setting her up for success. The team at Instinct is taking it slow with other dogs so that she is socialized properly and set up for success, rather than add to her generalized fear and anxiety. 🙏🏼The ideal fosters would commit to her until adoption (or be interested in adopting her themselves), would have no other pets or young children, and would have experience with young, anxious dogs. 🙏🏼Everyone who has met Stella has fallen in love with her. She is one of those special dogs who will be forever obsessed and loyal to her people, as well as forever grateful for the tiniest bit of love and positive attention she receives. We are determined to see Stella thrive, and we are looking for that special person who can give her what she needs. We love you Stella, and we can’t wait to find you the happily ever after you’ve always wanted 💖 • • • Huge thank you to her team of supporters, including @adventuresofbentleyandroyce @ktydogs @nravitz @pumpkin_pups and more ❤️❤️ #shelterchic #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #dogfoster #fosterneeded #fosterdog #dogperson #anxiousdog #specialdog #doglover #fortheloveofdogs #blackmouthcurmix #blackmouthcur #rescuedog #rescuepup #labmix #pitmix #puppy #nonprofit #animalrescue #dogtrainer #becausesavinglivesisalwaysinstyle
