Pipa the Collie with anxiety behaviors

Pipa the Collie has picked up a very peculiar habit when hearing certain noises in the kitchen to start barking at the lights in the living room.

We did some digging into the emotions she was displaying which were anxiety based.

Now, because this is a unique behaviour sequence she has developed, We've had to separate the different elements to classically condition her to the different noises at a volume she's comfortable with. (This will help remove the anxiety).

As for redirecting to the light, we've set her owners with 2 tasks to teach her a settle away from the noises (which we can later implement to the classical conditioning) and also redirection for her toy (so we can control the full behaviour sequence when put together).

Her owners have a fair bit of work to completely remove the anxiety and the redirection, but I have no doubt her owners will help get her there.

Well done Pipa & Co.
