Meet Kaylee, our 10 year old Shiba Inu who was dog reactive when we adopted her.  She now helps other reactive dogs with their desensitization process.

Reactivity Desensitization Courses

These courses are designed to help desensitize dogs who are reactive to people, cars or other dogs.  These are not for dogs who are aggressive, have a bite history or are a bite risk, but don't worry we can help them too!

You're not the only dog owner who stresses about walking your dog for fear of something happening, the faster you work to help your dog overcome the reaction caused by the emotion they are having towards a stimulus the less likely your dog is to become dangerous.

Our goal is to help your dog overcome reactions caused by their emotions from looking at stimuli.  We use no harsh methods in this process but help the dog learn to overcome their stressors at their own pace. 

We have a lot to cover in these courses to teach you why your dog is responding by showing unwanted behavior, how to read your dog's body language to help them through the desensitization process without pushing them past their mental limits as they overcome their emotions while learning how to offer alternative behaviors and change the way they perceive stressful situations.  The result is a stronger bond between you and your dog with a dog who willingly offers behaviors before needing to be told what to do.

We also teach you how dogs learn through luring, shaping and capturing wanted behaviors.  We go over motivators and how to use them, why we don't punish unwanted behavior, how to socialize a puppy or dog of any age by creating positive associations and building a strong bond with their owners​, switching cues to every day behaviors and proofing the behaviors so they are natural responses, behavior thresholds and how to avoid pushing your dog past their mental limits, safety and when to seek help from your veterinarian or a veterinary behaviorist during the desensitization process.

Training can be done in person or a combination of both online and in person depending on your preference.  Training is typically once a week but can be done twice a week depending on everyone's schedules and ability to practice between sessions.

Consultations are $100 and are scheduled for an hour and a half to two hours depending on what behaviors are already being seen by the owner.  Pricing for each customized training program vary based on training goals and severity of the behaviors.
