This is a training, discussion, and support group for owners of fearful and reactive dogs in the Burlington, Vermont, area.

Fearful dogs come in all sizes, all breeds, and from all backgrounds. Their fears vary, as do their reactions. They may try to hide or shrink away, or they make do everything they can to appear big and scary. But they all have one thing in common: they need positive, deliberate guidance to gain confidence in the world.

Rehabilitating a dog with fear issues can be a challenging and sometimes isolating process. Our group serves as a space to discuss training tips, vent and laugh about the embarrassing moments, and share support on the long but rewarding journey of helping our dogs.

This group is open to new members. If you have questions, email scaredydog802@gmail.com.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
