About Fear Free

At Fear Free®, our mission is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety & stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them.

Founded by Veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker, and developed by hundreds of experts in behavior, medicine, and handling, the organisation Fear Free is aiming to educate pet owners and professionals. Fear Free practices means that the professional, whether it be a groomer, vet or trainer strives to keep the animal as comfortable as possible and minimize fear, anxiety and stress.

To become certified, professionals study an online program and then update their certification through continued education every year.
