Reactive Dog Training
Is your dogs stress causing you stress, injury or embarrassment on walks?
Do they regularly bark or lunge at people, dogs or novel objects or flee in fear?
Do they seem overwhelmed and lack the ability to focus?
We understand the challenges of handling an over-reactive dog and are here to help. When you choose to work with us, you'll work closely with an educated and credentialed Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant or senior trainer who specializes in reactivity, fear and aggression. Our goal is to build a positive relationship using humane behaviour modification methods for reactivity, fear, anxiety and aggression. We will create a tailored plan for both you and your dog, empowering you with the skills and confidence needed to manage and train together effectively.
With classes catered to reactive dogs, you will have opportunities to advance your training
in a various group settings.

Empower Your Training Journey:
Partner with us for positive Behaviour change
Each new client begins by booking a comprehensive 60 or 90 minute consultation which can be done in person or virtually. During the consultation, your trainer will take a full history of your dog, get an idea of your lifestyle and routines, set you up with safety and management strategies, develop a custom training plan and walk you through the training exercises needed to start your plan. From there, you will practice the new skills taught for a couple weeks before either attending a basic meetup with our Tri-Cities Reactive Club or booking a private follow up to ensure no changes need to be made.

What to expect when you book with us
When we meet, we start by looking at your dog’s daily routine and see if we need to make any adjustments. From there we will discuss your current challenges to get a solid understanding of what is going on.
Next, we set some goals, management and safety strategies and begin creating a custom training plan.
We finish by going over the training plan to ensure it is manageable for you, show demonstrations where needed, answer any last questions and go over any homework to get started on before receiving your follow up notes and training plan via email.
Before we finish, we will book in any follow up appointment(s) if not already done.
It is recommended to book follow ups 1-3 weeks apart.
After the consultation, you will receive a training plan with step by step instructions, handouts and other educational tools. This will be sent within 10 days of your appointment unless otherwise specified.
We recommend writing down any questions before we arrive and also encourage taking notes, however, that is not required!
Follow ups are done in person and can be indoor or outdoors.
Your first follow up is generally booked 2 weeks after your consultation.
Additional follow-ups are generally scheduled 2-3 weeks apart
They are great for those of you who prefer hands on help with the implementation of the training plan, have multiple skills to work on, refining your dog training skills or keeping on track with your training plan with pre-booked appointments.
It is recommended that all sessions are completed within 6 months of the initial booking to ensure consistency in training
Sessions expire 12 months from initial booking
Please Note: We do not guarantee any results in training. Due to the nature of behaviour and all factors involved, time frames and progress will vary. Client compliance and completion of homework tasks is necessary for training plans to be successful.
