(Cleveland, OH) June 14, 2018- Embrace Pet Insurance, one of the highest-rated pet insurance companies in the United States, announced the launch of its new "Safety FURST" video series. The company has teamed up with certified professional dog trainer and TV personality, Laura Nativo, to bring advice to pet parents across the country on training topics ranging from positive training to introducing dogs. One of the new videos in the series is timely, as it features important tips on how to help dogs fearful of fireworks and other loud noises.
"Embrace knows that a well-trained dog is a safe dog, which is why we're excited to partner with Laura," said Sara Radak, Manager of Content and Creative at Embrace Pet Insurance. "Each video in our series was created to help pet parents learn positive training methods they can apply to enhance the lives of their dogs."
With Independence Day coming up, the video on fireworks desensitization will be relevant to all of the pet parents who can relate to the stress leading up to the holiday if you have a pet that is fearful of loud noises like fireworks.
"I'm excited to work with Embrace Pet Insurance to reach millions of pet parents across the country in time for the 4th of July," said Laura Nativo. "My first experience with fireworks desensitization training came when I adopted my dog, Delilah, who was entering her 2nd fear period just in time for the 4th festivities. By taking a pro-active approach to fireworks training, I've managed to help my dogs, and my client dogs, not only endure, but enjoy fireworks and other frightening sounds. With force-free positive reinforcement training, I can help others alleviate a dog's fear by changing their emotional response to loud noises. My training methods are science-based, and have proven very successful."
The seven videos in the series are each around four minutes long. Each topic will also include a blog post that pet parents can use as an additional resource. The video series and blog articles will be hosted by Embrace Pet Insurance on its website and social media accounts. Additional topics featured in the series include: - Intro to positive reinforcement training- Sit- Recall- Leave it- Loose leash walking- Introducing dogs
