Ability to participate in WonderGym(Mondays)
Underdog Day school is suitable for dogs who:
have experienced trauma
are struggling with emotional regulation and need to build resilience
are fearful in certain environments or situations
need confidence building
have a hard time expressing themselves in a healthy way
Although each session looks different for each dog, all pups will go through the cycle of emotional regulation which includes healthy play and arousal(excitement) followed by calming activities to help decompress the nervous system and return your pup to a more balanced emotional state. This is a beneficial life skill that helps dogs cope better with stress, adapt better to routine changes and become more emotionally resilient.
