Private Training

private fear and reactivity training

It all starts with an initial Zoom consult!

During this virtual session, I will be collecting relevant case information that will not only allow our first session to be more productive but will serve to limit your dog’s stress as they will not have to be confined during the history-taking process.

The video consult includes a review of the following:

  • Relevant case history
  • Your specific training goals
  • A working prognosis
  • Emergency management interventions
  • A follow-up email to include detailed recommendations and resources that apply to your case
  • Referrals, if needed

*Package options include the initial Zoom consultation in their pricing. 

*Single individual in-person sessions are available after completion of the Zoom consultation at a rate of $115 per individual training session. 

$115, 90-minute initial Zoom consultation

Reactive Rover Group Walk

A service exclusively for our clients! Pawsitive Behavior Solutions is committed to offering continued support after private sessions so our clients can reach their goals.

Are you looking for more opportunities to work your dog in a structured setup with professional supervision? Reactive Rover group walks are limited to clients who have completed a fear and reactivity package and have the skills necessary to work their dogs in more challenging environments.

What to expect:

  • How to generalize learned behaviors to new environments.
  • How to manage real-world distractions.
  • Professional feedback regarding your dog’s behavior in a new context.


Reactive Rover Class

Does your dog make a scene when they see other dogs out on a walk? Have you tried everything and feel like there is no hope?

In my Reactive Rover class, you will learn how to prevent the barking and lunging, identify what exactly sets your dog off, and teach them more appropriate alternative behaviors.

Worried that your dog would never make it in a group setting? This is not your typical group class. It provides a structured environment that keeps stress levels low for both you and your dog. Some of the behaviors that you’ll learn include:

  • Matwork/settling
  • Turn-and-go
  • Look at That
  • Find It
  • Hand-targeting
  • Leave It
