In this dog training tips video, we go over briefly how to start the process of working with a fearful, anxious dog. One of the most effective ways to begin the process is to merely introduce leash pressure. You will watch Thomas introduce the leash pressure to Snup and within minutes see the dog start to engage and follow Thomas around the room. This does NOT fix dog anxiety. However, it indeed is an elementary first step for you at home to build confidence with any dog!

    What are some exercises I can do at home with my dog to help him build his confidence in himself as well as in me as the leader? We had a trainer come by for an evaluation and she mentioned he does not view me as the pack leader, he views me as weak and this, along with his fear of other dogs after being bit, can add to his dog aggression.

    GJ! I found your vid because I know a young dog who has fearful behavior and their owners don't know how to train her. I want to help but I don't think my training or help would be reinforced at home.

    Not sure if this is too late but I have a 19 month old ACD that has had anxiety around strangers since she was 10 weeks old. I have done my best to socialize her but it has been difficult due to her nipping hands if someone reaches out to pet her. She is great with other dogs and great when it is just me around. She is very anxious on walks and also shuts down when I leave for work (will not interact with other family members, does not play etc…). Any suggestions? Thanks, love your videos!

    Thank you for the clarity of your instructions as to how to get my dog to focus on me instead of everything else around him!

    Thomas, you are great at what you do and I lhave learned a lot from your videos, THANK YOU! I recently rescud a dog very similar to Snoop in both appearance and manorisms. I am working with her anxieties but am struggling with her going to or staying in her "place" when not guided on the leash. She sits and stays for me very well in and outdoors but I need her to go to her place when visitors come and she just wants to growl and not allow entrance. Like Snoop she also is not motivated by treats so I just use affection but I cannot get her past this. Any sugguestions? Thanks, Tony

    Thank you so much for your video!! I just got a pit rescue that is a year old. She pulls when she is on a leash and I will work with her but how can I get her to relax around other dogs? She whimpers and pulls towards them. I was wondering if she wants to play or be aggressive. Any comment or help would be much appreciated.

    i was just wondering why you used a slip collar instead of a prong?

    Watching my sisters dog(German Shepherd mix) and she is cool and rad but has had no structure, been taken on almost no walks. 1.5 years old. Been taking her on walks, she pulls quite a bit until we’ve been out for a minute. She goes real slow when she sees a dog or human at any distance. Sometimes she just shuts down and tries to get out of her harness. I am not treating her with anger, but don’t really know what to do when she shuts down like that. I’ve been running her a bit and mid run she’ll come to a full stop. Maybe it’s too early to run? Is the slip collar better than a harness?

    This was the first video I've seen from Upstate. First impression, this is the proper way to correct a dogs behavior and in just a few minutes. There are others that get these results and one that I saw earlier that takes much longer to achieve a calm, submissive state in the dog. I'm subscribing to see more. Thanks and keep posting.

    How do I stop my dogs from barking in the car when I park it, other people think they are savage by their behaviour. I've tried a number of things to try to get them to stop, but as soon as I get out of the car they start barking again. Thank you for your video, I've learnt something new. Cheers!

    I have a 4 year old Morkie he has been through a manners class and beyond manners class his leash training is pretty good but I’ve tried and tried but he just will not stop barking at people. Even after he has been around them for awhile he still continues. He hasn’t bitten but they think he will. I know this is partly my fault because when he was young and would bark uncontrollably at people I would pick him up to calm him down, not realizing I was telling him this was the behavior I wanted. He does get nasty and snippy at the vet and I can not take him to a groomer and he even gets nippy and nasty when I try to clip him or even his nails. Just wondering if there is anything I can do to correct this. 🙁

    Loved to see him bring his paw up to high five you. Just something like that takes a lot of courage doing from a dog like this, so that's big progress.

    What did you use and how did you make the "slip lead"? Would it be the same using a chain slip or a martengale? I have seen and used your tips for using a prong, but I have some parents that are afraid to use the prong just on what it looks like. This would be another option…

    This is such bullshit. You are using negative reinforcement which is NOT the way to treat any dog, let alone an anxious dog. You are forcing him to move in your direction rather than allowing him to make the choice.

    Im training a 8 month old german Shepard, we just got her from a shelter. She is great with us. But pulls on leash and barks at othe dogs and people. I am going to get a slip coller to start working with like you showed. My local store sells the chain slip collars. Is this okay or should i order one like you have? Also should i start inside with this or in my backyard okay? Thank you!
