Fear Around Dogs

A specialised programme for children with a fear of dogs

A fear of dogs can be debilitating for a child, making trips out or walks around the park a source of anxiety rather than an opportunity for relaxing bonding time. Whether there is a clear cause behind their fear or not, I can help them overcome their worries with your help.

The Fear Around Dogs Protocol is a standardised programme offered exclusively by Kids Around Dogs Approved Trainers such as myself. This is the only such protocol available in Cheltenham.

Available for children 4+. Delivered with a thorough, yet fun and engaging approach, broken down into a minimum of 8 sessions.

The first 5 and 7th sessions are online, in order to build a strong rapport and trust with your child. These will run for up to 20 minutes, consisting of brief PowerPoints and a weekly task to complete. We will arrange incentives for your child, increasing in value as we progress through the weeks to ensure this is the most positive experience possible. 

Week 6 will be when we meet alongside a nominated calm dog. There will be absolutely no pressure for them to interact, but there will be an opportunity to do so.
