Have you ever wished you had a simple guide to help your clients take their dogs from fearful to Fear Free? One that was not only supportive of the veterinary relationship, but written by boarded veterinary behaviorists, a nationally recognized veterinarian, and a credentialed and experienced trainer — all Fear Free Certified?
We have great news — it’s here!
Fear Free founder Dr. Marty Becker teamed up with boarded veterinary behaviorists Dr. Lisa Radosta and Dr. Wailani Sung, along with Fear Free Chief Trainer Mikkel Becker, to write From Fearful to Fear Free: A Positive Program to Free Your Dog from Anxiety, Fears, and Phobias, based on the groundbreaking Fear Free program embraced by tens of thousands of veterinary healthcare professionals and hundreds of thousands of pet owners.
Do your patients suffer from fear, anxiety, and stress (FAS) triggers such as:
- Trips to the veterinarian
- Bath time, brushing, or cleaning ears
- Loud noises like thunderstorms; fireworks; the vacuum cleaner; construction; gunshots; even buzzers on appliances
- Less-familiar people or animals encountered on walks or near the home
- Being left alone during work hours or even for short errands
- Travel, including car rides
If they do, this book will guide them to understand the root causes of FAS and how to work with Fear Free Certified Professionals as well as at home to build up their dog’s confidence, calmness, and happiness.
From Fearful to Fear Free will educate them on medications a veterinarian can prescribe that may help their pet, positive steps they can take at home to keep their dog calm and happy, and how to help their dog love — yes, love! — visiting the veterinarian, literally pulling them into the practice instead of avoiding it!
We hope you’ll love this book. We hope you’ll recommend it to your clients. We believe it will help dogs and their loving owners break free from the prison of fear, anxiety, and stress that’s holding so many of them back.
