Stress Free Puppy
Stress Free Puppy is an intensive program using relatable everyday situations designed to help your puppy, or young dog, accept new experiences without feeling anxious, nervous or stressful. Our goal is to give you to the knowledge and tools to confidently guide your puppy, or young dog, into a happy well adjusted life. This is especially important in a busy city like Chicago.
Many puppies and young dogs feel uncomfortable with new or unfamiliar situations.
- Does your pet seem fearful at the vet?
- Is your dog afraid of going to the groomer?
