Olla, a German Shepherd, used to get frightened over the smallest of things; even the sound of the wind blowing in trees will terrify him. The dog came to Shaun, a 43-year old officer in the Royal Air Force Police. The three-and-a-half year dog is now happier knowing that he is cured of his anxiety disorder.
The police officer did not give up on the dog even if it took him several months of training and care just so the German Shepherd will be rid of its high levels of stress and anxiety. Keys aspects for the change in behavior were obedience training and a change on the dog’s diet.
The police officer is also a member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and has been training dogs with a variety of special cases.
