Desensitization: Why do Trainers and Behaviorists Talk About This?

Kate Abbott, Petra Burke & Liz Palika  on Pet Life Radio

Desensitization is the process of gradually introducing someone - human, canine or other animals - to something they are worried, concerned, or outright afraid of. This is an important behavioral tool when done correctly. In this podcast we talk about how it can be done with dogs as well as how Petra could become less afraid of spiders. Or maybe not.
