Reactive Dog Program

Dog reactivity lunging, barking, nipping, and just uncontrollable behavior around dogs and people are a common tale. Giving your dog the skills to deal with regular day to day demands are key. While management is a part of dealing with reactive behavior and skill building makes for life long changes.

We at For Your K9 specialize in working with reactivity or fearful dogs who act out aggressively. With the use of relationship based training through positive reinforcement, we help dogs develop coping skills while helping their caregivers understand how to set them up for success. Some dogs are even able to reduce their fear to a point they can happily interact with things they once found scary!

Do you want to experience having a less fearful dog that you feel more comfortable taking out in public? Take the first step in joining our program to see if it is a good fit by completing this brief survey: Let’s Get Started!

Once you have completed the survey we will reach out to set-up an in-person assessment at our facility. This 30-minute assessment will determine if your dog is a good fit for the program (one time fee of $50). Next, you will be invited to our introductory session held every other month. The introductory session is a 2-hour human only session to get you started on the path to a less reactive dog (one time fee $150).

If you have already attended a reactive dog workshop with Nancy Reyes the introductory session is free.

Upcoming Introductory Session
Saturday, June 30th 2pm or Friday, July 6th 7pm
Our all inclusive program was designed to provide maximum support for both the caregivers and their dog who reacts out of fear.

While we wish a fearful dog could be completely healed in a 90-minute session or a 6-week class, we know it takes months (if not years) to really help these dogs long term. Each dog is an individual. They, along with their caregivers, will need time to process, build on, and practice skills taught through this program.

What does the reactive dog program include?

  • 1-hour private coaching sessions with a qualified behavior consultant at our facility each month
  • Detailed homework notes from your monthly private coaching with video homework review and feedback
