As behavior and training professionals, we all know how prevalent fear related behaviors are.  But the same may not be true for pet owners.  Several studies have shown that owners and less experienced professionals don’t easily identify the signs of fear in dogs. There are also misconceptions about how fears get worse, and what can be done to lessen their intensity.

In this Biscuit series, we’ll talk about four Fear Factors we think are important to keep in the back of our minds when trying to understand the motivation for any behavior, including what elicits it, what maintains its expression, and what can be done to modify it.  You’ll see what we mean, as the four Fear Factors unfold in this Special Report.
