What is Fear Free?

Fear Free provides education to veterinary professionals, the pet professional community, and pet owners. Their programs provide professionals and pet lovers with the knowledge and tools to look after not only a pet’s physical well-being but her emotional well-being, as well. We know we must feed the pet’s mind as well as the body, so we make sure that in-home enrichment and Fear Free training are front-and-center with pet professionals and pet owners alike. They use original evidence-based research in dogs and cats and investigate the effects of techniques to decrease fear, anxiety, and stress and focus on environmental enrichment, meeting behavioral needs, and ways to evaluate stress.

Fear free is all about learning small detailed body language to make sure that we are avoiding fear, stress, and anxiety in pets. It is important in fear-free handling to avoid the four F’s- flight, fight, fret, and freeze. It is all about using a considerate approach to animal handling and animal training.
