Wild Moms don’t say ‘suck it up, Baby’

Comfort is for all seasons, and something that we can offer anyone we love, especially our dogs when they are feeling anxious or outright afraid. Yet in some animal training circles, there is a persistent belief that to comfort an animal who is afraid will only serve to “reinforce the fear.” A life spent with many animals in many situations has taught me that providing meaningful comfort is the sensible, loving response to any friend in need.

Suzanne Clothier says it very well.
