About the Class

An opportunity to help shy or fearful dogs who may shake, try to hide, put their tail between their legs, and refuse to go through a door, or even run away from people. Shyness can be genetic in nature or the result of bad experiences, especially during critical development stages. Regardless of the reason for the shyness, these very special dogs need some help to feel more comfortable in the everyday situations. In this group your shy dog can learn to diminish fears at their own pace in an understanding and supportive environment.

Class Requirements

Recommended for shy (not overtly reactive to other dogs or people) or fearful dogs over 4 months of age. If they are known to snap at hands that approach them that is all right. They will not be handled by strangers in class. Your dog should be current with all core vaccinations.

You are welcome to register more than one dog, but every dog must have an individual handler. If you have questions, please contact trainthebay@berkeleyhumane.org or call 510-845-7735, ext 215.
