Turn scary things into fun, positive experiences! Scary things from your dog’s point of view can include nail trimming, getting brushed, bathed or groomed, when you vaccuum or sweep, strangers wearing hats or glasses… and often times totally odd “normal” things like the washing machine running or a certain part of the street on your walking route!  Whatever the scary thing is to your dog, you can follow the simple, clearly illustrated steps on this great poster created by the world-famous canine behavior specialist Jez Rose.  You can download his great poster for free right here: 6 Top Tips for Desensitization poster PDF. The Jez Rose website has a whole section of free training resources available here and we really appreciate their allowing Adopt-a-Pet.com to feature their poster downloads to help adopted pets!
