  • Traumatized Dog Syndrome

  • I specialize in helping dogs with Traumatized Dog Syndrome or  Canine PTSD.

    My Ph. D is in Dog Behavior Problems caused by Trauma. Rehabilitating traumatized dogs is my specialty and my passion. I have devoted my life to these pets. I use my Ph. D training and thirty-eight years of  experience to relieve the misery that traumatized pets experience.

    Traumatized dogs usually demonstrate fearful, aggressive and/or chronically anxious behavior. Fearfulness of people, especially men, other dogs, being left alone in the house and fear of training tools such as leash and collar are common. Many traumatized dogs are reluctant to leave the house or hide in the house when new people are present.

    Trauma deeply disturbs dogs and disrupts many aspects of their life. Traumatized dogs need  techniques specific to the trauma(s) in the their background. Teaching a traumatized dog to only sit, stay and come results in perhaps a better behaved dog but one still suffers emotionally.

    Do you have a dog with this background?

    • Rescue dogs
    • Physical abuse
    • Severe neglect
    • Dogs from foreign countries
    • From isolated backgrounds
    • Obtained at older age from breeder
