An excellent talk with Dr. Karolina Westlund - I always enjoy and learn so much from her. The word accountability really struck a cord with me, as I think at times I've allowed my fear that the training, the method won't work or I'll do it wrong to paralyze me into not progressing to the next level or not even trying it. thank you, an inspiration!

Fireworks, Thunder, Barking, and other Loud Noises...

An estimated 20% of dogs develop fear of loud noises, showing avoidance, quaking, drooling, barking, or other signs of anxiety. 90% of those dogs may be helped. But how?

In this online presentation, Swedish ethologist Karolina Westlund explores what we know about how to prevent and resolve these challenging situations, with science behind different ways to address the problem of noise sensitivity. This presentation is heavy on practical skills and science.

Recorded in May, 2022.

  • Suitable for pet owners, professional dog trainers, and behaviorists.

  • Learn how to prevent the development of noise phobia.

  • Discover the early signs of anxiety.

  • Find out what to do in an emergency situation, but also what to do when there’s more time to prepare.

  • Dissect the science of noise phobia and examine the state of the evidence.

  • Attendees get a copy of Karolina's excellent eBook, “Fireworks and Dogs – the Definitive Guide” (containing links and a reference list).

  • Recording of an interactive live online event with loads of student questions, with responses by both Karolina and me (Grisha).

  • For a better value, consider a membership! This webinar is included with a Diamond All Access Pass.
