it can be SO helpful! in many ways, the training is more for you than the dog…it’s so important for you to stay consistent and give the proper cues. it takes a lot of time and patience on your part, but as long as you stick with it, you should get results.

@soyjoy222:Hi there! Our dog is currently going through a 6 week “dog camp” course. It touches every aspect. It’s mainly for obedience, but the one thing to obedience is over coming the anxiety and stress (our dog had a lot of that, consistently winey all the time). It took a good couple of weeks for him to get over it, it was really hard on him and really hard on us as he was staying at this place and out of the home. But once he over came that, everything else just falls in place. I know it’s not much information, but I would be happy to answer any questions and give you some tips on what we have gone through. It’s been 5 weeks and there has been so much improvement in him. We can’t wait for him to come home!! I wouldn’t give up, there is defiantly alternatives than having to give him up.

I’m glad that you are looking into behavioral therapy for your dog and are willing to work with your dog to get things figured out. Usually a good trainer can give you things to work on and with practice you can help make your dog more confident. I’m not sure where you are located in PA but Leslie McDevitt is the author of a book called Control Unleashed. It is a program for working with dogs that have a lot of anxiety or are easily distracted. I worked with a trainer who taught Leslie’s program and had great success with my dog that was very high anxiety. Leslie lives outside Philly and does consults, so she might be worth looking into if you are close to that area.
