Speedy, a 1-year old Labrador Retriever mix who was recently adopted, is extremely fearful of strangers. When I arrived she would charge me, growl and bark, then run away. I threw her bits of turkey as I made my way to a chair. As we talked I continued to drop treats on the floor until she eventually approached me to take them from my hand. By the end of our session she climbed on my lap to be petted, then posed for her photo. Pain free, force free, and fear free at work.
