Fear & Reactivity
Any scenario where your dog is fearful or reactive is stressful for all involved. It can even feel impossible to go for walks or to have visitors over. Fortunately, there are plans and strategies that we can put in place to make these events much less stressful for both you and your dog.
How we can help alleviate the stress for you and your dog:
How Training Works
All fear and reactivity training is done online via Zoom. This allows your dog to focus on the task at hand without worrying about the strange trainer that's been thrown into the mix. An important part of our training process is keeping your dog under threshold, meaning he isn't rehearsing the fearful behaviors that cause you both so much stress. We coach you remotely so that we can get right to training immediately, without having to wait for your dog to warm up to us.
Not only is it practical, it's highly effective. It allows us to focus on the nitty gritty of your technique by reviewing video in freeze frame so we can analyze all the minutia that really matters. It also facilitates short but sweet sessions that leave your dog wanting more.
