Look at That (L.A.T.) - Helping Fearful Dogs Overcome Anxiety
Welcome to Look at That (L.A.T.), a powerful behaviour modification technique designed to assist fearful dogs in overcoming anxiety and improving their behavior. If you have a dog who struggles with fearfulness or exhibits reactive behavior towards certain triggers, L.A.T. could be the key to transforming their outlook and enhancing the quality of your walks.
What is L.A.T.?
Look at That, or L.A.T., is a positive reinforcement-based training method specifically developed to address reactivity and fear in dogs. It focuses on working to change your dog's perception of the trigger by encouraging them to perceive the trigger in a positive and non-threatening light. L.A.T. teaches
dogs how to make better behaviour choices in the presence of their triggers and strengthens the foundation of trust you share.
How L.A.T. Helps Fearful Dogs:
Reducing Reactivity: L.A.T. helps dogs decrease their reactivity
threshold helping them learn that the presence of the trigger is not
inherently harmful. This newfound confidence can be a game-
changer for dogs struggling with anxieties.
Building Positive Associations: L.A.T.
uses positive reinforcement to create
positive associations with the
trigger. Over time your dog
starts to associate the once-
feared stimulus with something
positive leading to a profound
shift in their emotional
Enhancing Focus and Trust: Through L.A.T., you can strengthen the bond you share. By engaging with you after looking at the trigger, your dog learns to bond you share. By engaging with you after looking at the trigger your dog learns to trust that you will guide them through challenging situations. This increased trust helps your dog feel more secure and lessens their fear responses.
Improving Emotional Well-being: Fearful dogs often experience chronic stress and anxiety. By helping them reduce their fear and reactivity, L.A.T. can significantly improve their emotional well-being, leading to a happier and more relaxed pet.
Empowering Your Dog:
L.A.T. empowers your dog by giving them the tools to cope with stressful situations. Instead of feeling of helpless or overwhelmed, they gain the ability to engage with triggers confidently, knowing that positive experiences await them.
