How Does the Program Work?

Here are the steps to making things better.


Step 1.

Purchase the online course, packed with self-paced video lessons (most under 5 minutes) and corresponding handouts written by dog behavior experts. You will begin understanding and using the materials quickly and effectively. All of the lessons are fun, use positive reinforcement, and are science-based.

Step 2. 

You will begin to practice the new behavioral tools with your dog in the comfort and safety of your distraction-free home where new information is easiest for your dog to digest.

Step 3.

Take your skills out into real-life settings where your dog will begin to associate once-scary, stressful, or arousing things with something positive instead.

Working diligently, you may begin to see some positive changes in your dog’s behavior in as little as a few short weeks.

Step 4.

Walk your dog with the skill, and confidence needed for both of you.

How long will the program take?

You have access to the materials and email support for as long as you are a member. Most students work through the material in 3-5 months. Working diligently you will begin to see positive results even sooner.

Am I on my own?

Not at all! We will work closely with you to help you succeed.

This course, written by a board certified veterinary behaviorist, is supported via email and phone by two certified professional dog training experts. When you have questions, just let us know and we will help you work through any challenges.

We have helped thousands of dogs. We are confident we can help yours!

It sounds expensive

For what you will be getting, it’s surprisingly affordable. The new and improved course, including all of the video lessons, handouts, and personalized help is only $35 to enroll. That is a fraction of the cost of one in-person dog training session with a qualified professional.  (With this course, you get three!) After that, tuition is only $35 per month. Cancel anytime.

What if I don’t take the course?

Unfortunately, your dog’s behavior issues will typically not improve without the right set of tools and we have those tools for you. Most dog’s behavior, if not helped, will progressively worsen. We will work closely with you to help you succeed.

You have questions? We have answers!

This course is for owners with dogs that react on leash toward other dogs, people, cars, bikes, etc. Reacting means uncontrollable behaviors including lunging or pulling, barking, growling, or whining.

We know because we have helped thousands of people over the years who were just like you. Now they are enjoying a dog who is much calmer and easier to walk. Plus, we are there to help answer any questions you may have while you are learning and working the program with your dog.

We will help you teach your dog new behaviors. Your dog can’t learn if he is stressed and reacting.  We begin to build new, alternative behaviors in the quiet of your home.
When both of you understand the new behavioral tools you will learn, you will then be using them thoughtfully on walks as laid out in the course. The goal is no reactions (or fewer and fewer), so building muscle memory for both of you is important to make walks calmer and less stressful.
For the first few weeks, we suggest a staycation where you avoid all triggers. (We will help with enrichment activities.) That means walking in locations and times of day when you’re not likely to see your dog’s triggers. Find new places or times, walk in the backyard, or take your dog out quickly and return home. When your staycation ends, you will have skills to utilize!

This is a self-paced course. Take as much time as you need to practice the skills in each chapter’s lessons to begin to change your dog’s reactive behavior. We recommend practicing and understanding each lesson before moving on. This is an online course utilizing discussion, lectures, videos, photos, slides, and written material. There will be ample opportunity for asking questions and learning through feedback.

You can start anytime you want! There is no schedule to contend with. Fit everything into your schedule. And yes, working in the comfort of your home without distractions (to begin with) is the way to begin to get your dog to relax and feel safer.

You will need a computer or laptop with a good internet connection. While not ideal, a smartphone can be used.

The fee for the entire new and improved package includes:

  • All of the coursework, video lessons, handouts, techniques, and instructor access to change your dog’s behavior in a positive way.
  • Unlimited 5-day per week email access to an experienced instructor
  • Bonus videos and ebooks every month!
  • A private Facebook community to share with others in the program, learn new tips, and ask questions.

The course is only $35 a month. That’s about a dollar a day! You can cancel anytime.

Typically, dogs will show improvement and are often stable within a few months, but it takes time to change behavior. One of the sections of the course will help you with realistic goal setting. Improvement is also contingent on how much you work with your dog as well as how long the problem has been happening and how serious a problem it is. All dogs are different so we can’t make any predictions or guarantees. However, we have helped hundreds of dogs with this problem and our goal is to help you with yours.

 In the majority of dogs, the reason is fear, anxiety or stress. They may react in order to get the scary thing to go away. Or they may act out because they are frustrated and overexcited.

In this course, we will teach your dog that there are other options instead of reacting. When your dog learns other, better behaviors, he or she will get calmer and you will both become more confident.

All of the behaviors listed below are not addressed in this class. Please contact us if you are not sure if this is the right class for your dog’s issues. 

  • Dogs whose only issue is guarding resources such as their food dish or toys.
  • Dogs that jump on people in a friendly manner. A good dog trainer can help you with that. That is not fear-based reactivity.
  • Dogs who are primarily scared of noises. Please check out our other course for help with this issue.
  • Dogs who fight with the other dog(s) in their household but are fine with dogs outside the home.
  • Dogs who are only a problem to visitors inside the home but aren’t a problem on leash to people outside the home.
  • Dogs whose problems are not primarily due to leash reactivity. This course is designed to modify the behavior of dogs that react while on the leash.
