Joelle CuprakWOOFS! Dog Training Center congratulates trainer Joelle Cuprak on achieving the Fear Free Trainer Certification by the Fear Free® initiative.

The Fear Free mission is “to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them.” The initial program was launched in 2016 to certify veterinary professionals and veterinary programs, but its success and growth have led to certification programs for a range of pet professionals. They state: “Together, under the auspices of the Fear Free program, veterinary professionals and trainers have the opportunity to team up to achieve their goals and at the same time help relieve dogs and cats of the fear, anxiety and stress that often accompany visits to the veterinarian or health care administered at home.”

WOOFS! Dog Training Center supports Fear Free® principles, and we are very proud of Joelle’s accomplishment.
