If your dog gets over-excited, goes over-threshold or gets distracted or anxious and just won’t (or can’t) listen and you want to help your dog to be attentive and responsive, calm and cooperative … please know that partnership is what will turn your relationship around.
Just like it did for me, and for more than 3,000 students and members that I’ve worked with over the past 25+ years.
Having a sensitive, anxious, hyper or reactive dog is HARD.
I’m so sorry that you’re going through this with your dog. xo
Let’s unpack what’s happening so we can get you freed from this stress spiral, okay?
The truth is:
Dogs lunging and barking at triggers, or stress barking at everything, or obsessively chasing or hunting, or anxious or nervous and unable to cope … are NOT training issues.
The truth is that these are all SYMPTOMS of miscommunication, misunderstandings, unmet needs, unrealistic expectations, and amplifications of the GAPS IN OUR RELATIONSHIP with our dogs.
It’s like skipping the dating part and jumping right into married life with someone from a different culture that speaks a different language. It’s gonna be a hot mess of miscommunication and misunderstandings. (even if it was love at first sight!) 💗
After years of study and working with thousands of dogs and their families, we have cracked the code and are able to consistently and reliably break free of this overwhelming spiral.
We learn simple partnership strategies for staying grounded, clear, and kind. We use simple frameworks and implement simple daily practices that lead to better behavior, a better bond, and a brilliant life with our dogs.
This is what you’ll learn how to do in the Relationship Rehab Intensive…
… so that you and your dogs can truly enjoy your life together … and so that you can fall in love with being a dog mom again. 🐾💕
That’s what I want for you!
