Is this course a good fit for you? 

Confidence Building For Dogs is for you if your dog is afraid of many things that people with "normal" dogs take for granted. Maybe your dog is afraid to go for walks, or to get into the car, or even of being petted.

If you:

  • Try to reassure and comfort your dog, but they're still scared

  • Struggle to get your dog to trust you no matter what you do

  • ¬†Have a dog who is often too anxious to take treats or listen to you

  • ¬†Are confused by conflicting advice¬†you find online

  • ¬†Just don't understand your fearful dog

 
Then this course is for you.
 
I've been where you are with my own fearful dogs, so I understand how difficult it is not knowing how to help them. Luckily, there is hope! Confidence Building For Dogs will give you the tools and support you need to understand your dog better and build their confidence so they can live their best life. 

By the end of this course, you will have...

Don't just take it from me...

Here's what my students have to say:

Kelly's thoughtful, kind, respectful and creative approach to training has literally saved my dog’s life.

She now wags her tail and happily follows me outside to potty. I have learned so much from the training sessions, videos and individual feedback.

Skye's mom

Working with Kelly has been a wonderful experience!

 I really appreciate that her training addresses Piper's individual needs and unique struggles. The tools that Kelly provides help to track what I am supposed to be working on throughout the week and keep me accountable to training regularly. 

Piper's mom

Kelly is far-and-away the best, most knowledgeable and compassionate trainer I have ever met. 

Training is fun for me and my dog, exercises are well-organized and tailored to our abilities and goals. My hopeless fantasies of Turnip acting like a "normal" dog are becoming reality and I cannot thank Kelly enough.

What's inside Confidence Building For Dogs

Understanding your dog

Your dog is "talking" to you all the time. But if you don't speak their language, you'll continue to struggle to make progress. I'll teach you what to look for when "listening" to your dog, and how to respond so that they feel safer, and you feel more confident about how to interact with them. 

Module 1 Highlights:

  • Learn what your dog's eyes, ears, body & tail are telling you
  • Learn what other behaviors communicate fear or anxiety
  • Do some guided practice observing your own dog
  • Get individualized feedback on your dog's body language

Building a sense of safety & security

Is your dog anxious even when at home? Do they startle at routine sounds? Are they afraid of everyday activities like having a leash put on, or going outside? I'll teach you how to help your dog feel safer day-today.

Module 2 Highlights:

  • Make your home a safe haven for your dog
  • Take the stress out of daily activities
  • Learn how you're inadvertently¬†adding to your dog's anxiety & how to avoid it
  • Add more fun & enrichment to your dog's life

How your dog learns

Are you often confused by what your dog does? Do you wonder why they behave the way they do, and struggle to change it? Here I'll shed light on the mystery of your dog's behavior.

Module 3 Highlights:

  • How does your dog learn through consequences & associations?
  • Why does your dog do some behaviors sometimes, but not at other times?
  • How can you teach your dog new behaviors?
  • How do you¬†reinforce behaviors you want (even if your dog isn't very food motivated)?

Confidence-building games

Learn and practice some simple and fun confidence-building training games with your dog. I'll teach you how to personalize each game for your own dog's needs.

Module 4 Highlights

  • Build attention & comfort with eye contact
  • Teach your dog to follow you & move with you (a pre-requisite for¬†going on walks together).
  • Teach your dog to put their paws on a board. This leads to scratch board training (your dog learning to file their own nails!)

Planning for the vet, visitors, & more

No matter what challenges your dog faces, they will need to go to the vet & tolerate visitors to your home. And you likely have other goals for your fearful dog- maybe going for walks, trips in the car, or being cared for by a pet sitter. In this last module, I'll help you come up with plans to reach these goals.

Module 5 Highlights

  • Make a plan for getting veterinary care for your dog, including how to find a vet who will work with you.
  • Having people over for dinner? You'll make a plan to help your dog cope.
  • Make a personalized list of priority behaviors to train¬† to meet your goals with your dog.¬†

Still not sure?

 

You should give Confidence Building For Dogs a 7-day risk-free shot if one of these applies to you:

You've tried DIY dog training, but you're stuck.

There is a lot of free dog training advice online. Some of it is good, some is terrible. But all of it lacks the clear framework & guidance you'll get in this course.

You're confused by conflicting training advice.

All of the course materials and training support you'll receive is consistent with behavior science and a force-free training ethic. It also all has a proven track record or success. 

You just want your dog to start trusting you.

It's so easy to break trust with very fearful dogs, just by doing "normal" human things. You'll learn how to establish & grow your dog's trust in you, so that you can work & play better together.

About me

Helping fearful dogs build confidence is a topic near and dear to my heart.

I've been working with fearful dogs for almost 15 years, but when I brought home my little Pancake, a terrified, anti-social, untouchable dog, I decided to focus my work on these special, difficult, but very rewarding pups. 

My little dog was scared of everything, and had zero interest in interacting with me. He wouldn't even eat treats if I was in the room with him.

With time, patience, love, and a lot of careful training, Pancake is now a happy, cuddly little guy who hikes with his doggy brother and sister every day. 

There's no quick fix for fear, and even when you are trying your very best, you'll have good days and bad with your pup. But I promise, there is nothing that fills your heart up more than seeing your previously terrified dog start to find joy in life, with your help.
