Q. My 5 year American bulldog has a fear of the beach
A. Try getting him gradually used to the beach. If he likes car rides, take him to the beach. Keep high value treats and give them to him as you get closer to your destination. When he shows anxiety, stop the car, reassure him until he settles, feed him some treats and take him home. Gradually work up to driving on the beach, if possible, stopping and parking, and eventually getting out and walking around. Always end these training sessions on a positive note, if something makes him very anxious, go back to the last thing he was comfortable with and end the session.
