Our dogs might love us unconditionally, but sometimes they don’t love everything, which can lead to embarrassment or even injury. SF Dog Connect will help get you and your dog comfortable around the things that make him nervous. Below are some common issues we’ve helped people with.

First, please note that fear & aggression are often one and the same thing. They are at most one quick flinch away from each other. When a dog reacts in fight/flight mode, this is literally the nanosecond of time when he’s making a “decision” to react with fear or aggression. It’s all just energy surging through him that needs to get released. We need to help make our dogs confident and relaxed and drain any pent up anxiety in a healthy manner. Then they can enjoy living up to their full, happy, loving potential.
