The 5 Canine Confidences

  • Distractions Confidence - the belief that changes in circumstances are acceptable and manageable.

  • Predictability Confidence -  the belief that things happen for a reason and their behavior can predict or dictate outcomes. 

  • Relationship/Team Confidence - the belief that together (dog/handler) they can handle the challenges in front of them.

  • Self Confidence - the belief that they can handle the challenges in front of them.

  • Safety Confidence - the belief or feeling that they will be safe, calm, and comfortable in regular day-to-day activities.

We will explore and develop these core canine confidences by playing games and doing exercises to help your dog become more confident.  All activities are designed to guide your dog through some basic foundational skills that you would normally go through in a basic adult obedience class.  However this class is designed to go at your dog's speed taking into account their personality and skill level at the time.  That makes this class a possibility for dogs of all ages and skills.

The Confident Canines Classroom is designed to help the shy or sensitive family pet become more confident living with their family.  It's also great from Service Dogs in Training and Therapy Dogs who are learning to be confident in multiple environments.  If your dog struggles with a lack of self control or easily distracted, you will find this class enjoyable for you both.

Every dog CAN be resilient if you let Crazy2Calm Canine Coaches help you!
