How to Help Your Fearful Dog: Become the Crazy Dog Lady

I really like this article smile.gif It explains simply why fearful dogs may show aggression, how and why counter conditioning and desensitisation works, management techniques and why punishment will simply make your dog not only still afraid of the scary thing, but now afraid of his handler err.gif

Good explanation about the difference between operant and classical conditioning, I like that. It's not easily understood.
