Fear ◆ Reactivity ◆ Aggression

Cowering, hiding, slinking away, growling, lunging, snapping, biting. It breaks my heart to type these words. How stressful it must be for you to live with these behaviors. Please know that there is hope.

Help for your dog's fearful, reactive, aggressive, or similar worrisome behaviors begins with a remote video consult (in-person option after). We will discuss in detail your dog's behavior history, your goals, safety precautions, and immediate strategies to start. Examples of behavior concerns I can help with include:

  • Barking, growling, lunging on walks 

  • Growling or snapping at visitors 

  • Growling at family over food or toys

  • Possessive over beds and couches

  • Body handling and grooming issues

  • Settling in a shy or fearful rescue dog

  • Afraid of interacting with strangers

  • Anxiety about getting in the car

  • General fear of the environment

  • Aggression towards other dogs

At the consult, we will agree on a plan for follow-up lessons. I'll make a realistic recommendation for a package size based on our discussion. Follow-up lessons may be in-person or remote. For some behavior concerns, I may suggest continuing remotely.  

In-home lessons are available within the service area listed at the bottom of every page of this website, and in select surrounding areas for an additional travel fee.
