Are you nurturing your dog’s fears?

Are you unknowingly encouraging the fear your dog is feeling?
When someone we know (friend, family member, co-worker, child even someone we don’t know) gets frightened of something, as humans our first impulse is to comfort them. We might tell them “everything will be ok” or “don’t worry about it”. We might put our arm around them, give them a hug, hold their hand, pat them or stroke their head, all in a effort to sooth them and make them feel better. All of these things generally help to make the person feel better and let’s face it we can use reason and logic with a human (well most).
