What's Fear Free?

Nothing but the best for you and your pet!

Founded in 2016, Fear Free provides online education to pet professionals to help them gear their practices towards reducing fear, anxiety, and stress in pets. This helps improve the overall experience of pets and their owners alike in veterinary, grooming, boarding, and other pet-related settings. 

Our commitment to Fear Free practices means we will always aim to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress when caring for your pet. We constantly strive to:

  • Build relationships with you and your pets based on respect, trust, communication, and consent.
  • Provide calm, patient care at your pet’s individual pace.
  • Educate ourselves and others on the tools and practices that promote a Fear Free environment for your pets.
  • Enrich the lives of the pets in our care by creating environments that are as stress-free as possible (including through the use of calming music, gentle conversation, desirable treats and toys, and giving space).
