Stop wasting crucial, life-saving time and start getting the help you and your companions need.

Does any one, or more, of these items describe you?

  • You want serious education, training, and/or certification that confirms not simply your receipt of information, but your demonstrated expertise in the myriad facets of fearful dog work.

  • You long for resolution to the needless suffering and loss of companion animals, but you're not quite sure how you can help make that can happen, and you worry that a mistake could somehow result in costing dogs their lives, or you your confidence.

  • You've taken a lot of classes but most were too basic or too confusing, lacked breadth or depth, or offered no mentoring to best ensure your growth. 

  • You wonder if your current experience, knowledge, skills, and/or credentials are enough to help you become a recognized fearful dogs specialist because if not, needy dog caretakers might hire someone without proper qualifications, leaving dogs at risk.  

  • The idea of so many sweet, innocent, full-of-potential dogs yet so few people qualified and willing to humanely help them depresses you.

  • You worry that your limited work experience or previous aversives use is negatively effecting your abilities or reputation.

  • Your worst nightmare is that you will pour your time, energy, and hard-earned money into tackling this process then still have to do another process all over again, either because some new ‘thing’ arises in the dog training world, or you just didn’t understand the program.

  • You are a proactive, enthusiastic learner who is teachable and willing to embrace the strategies, insights, and attitude necessary to becoming an expert in fearful dog work—and you are willing to consistently, patiently implement these.

If any of these describes how you feel, let’s talk!
