Stressed Out to Chilled Out-Canine Relaxation 

Relaxation comes more naturally to some dogs than others. While many dogs seem to be born to nap, other dogs vibrate at a higher frequency and find it challenging to settle down. Living with dogs who have difficulty settling down can be exhausting. Pet owners may then find themselves in an endless loop of trying to take longer walks and provide even more exercise in a futile attempt to help their dog to calm down. Unfortunately, this often results in a dog who builds an ever-increasing exercise tolerance while never truly learning to relax leaving owners frustrated and exhausted. 

In this course, your dog will learn various skills that can help them relax in your home and in new environments.
