Group of dogs


Here at Applause Your Paws we frequently have dogs come in who could use a little confidence boost. Our certified dog trainers not only work with your dog on obedience, they customize the training for your dog’s specific needs. If your dog is shy, intimidated by new environments, big dogs, or new people, don’t fret! It’s very common to have a shy or fearful dog and we have the tools and expert dog trainers to help.

Brinkley (the adorable cockapoo in the middle) came into our board and train program to help build his confidence around larger dogs. Brinkley was intimidated at first, but excelled in every training task he was given. Since he could use a confidence boost, our professional dog trainers slowly introduced him to larger dogs and had him working around them one by one. He quickly gained his confidence and even learned to do a few new tricks in a room full of dogs larger than him. In the picture above, he demonstrated his “down stay” with a few of his new large breed friends who are also in our board and train program.

Each dog has his own personality, so our expert dog trainers customize your dog’s training session not just on your wants but on your dog’s needs. Something as simple as teaching your dog to spin in a circle, or even a down stay are just a few examples of confidence building commands. To learn more about how to help your nervous or fearful dog, contact us today!
