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.
This is a self-paced course. Take as much time as you need to practice the skills in each week’s lesson to begin to change your dog’s reactive behavior. We recommend doing one lesson per week. 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 package includes:
- All of the coursework, video lessons, handouts, techniques, and instructor access to change your dog’s behavior in a positive way.
- Topical lesson discussions for a complete learning experience.
- Unlimited 5-day per week email access to an experienced instructor
- Generous phone support to answer questions and concerns.
This package is $149.00
Need extra help? At a special reduced rate, you can schedule a virtual consult to meet face-to-face online with a knowledgeable instructor to work with you and your dog as if you were in the same room, answer any questions, and troubleshoot any issues.
Typically, dogs will show improvement, 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.

Thanks for the fantastic courses you are doing! Ozzie and I are having a great time learning all of these new things. I really love it when he has a light bulb moment. He gets lots of treats and I get so happy. We are not perfect but each day is better than the one before. I find the handouts very helpful and I print them out for my reference. The videos are great because I really need to see what I’m supposed to be doing. You are all amazing and have great knowledge about dog behavior. It’s incredible. Thank you for caring and sharing yourselves with others.
