What People Are Saying

It's absolutely amazing to see his progress! I'm actually enjoying walks with him again, which is a treat in itself!

Huge thanks for all your help and being so positive with both of us!

I need to let you know that my highly reactive dog now completely ignores passing dogs.

It’s a really big change for her and I’m so happy she can relax a lot more on her walks!

Thank you so much for all your help and tips. I now feel more confident to take him out and him not lunge and react at other dogs. I am very grateful for all the knowledge that you have shared with me!

Hey There, I'm Christina!

I have been working with reactive dogs for almost 30 years. I tend to be a sucker for the special needs dogs so I have ended up living with quite a few reactive dogs. Plus, I have done years of special needs fostering and over the last 12 years I have been helping my many wonderful students and their dogs. I would love to have you join our community!

My Secret Sauce? There are no recipes. What you need isn't exactly the same as what another person needs. What your dog needs isn't exactly the same as what another dog needs. This small group class will give us the space and time to figure out what each team needs. I care just as much about people as I do about dogs, and I really want to make things easier for you and for your dog.

Plus! You will see how other teams are implementing similar games for their challenges. This will give you the information and confidence you need to adjust your plan as your dog learns and their needs change.

Alright, so what's it cost?

$849CDN for 8 weeks of instruction and lifetime access to the materials


I am a certified Canine Behavior Consultant both with IAABC and PPG. I have many other credentials and stay up to date on the latest methods and the science behind what we do.


Together we tackle your training plan from different directions, layering skills as you and your dog are ready.


The class is limited to 6 people! You won't be lost in a sea of hundreds or thousands. I will give each of you individual, personalized attention, plus you'll meet other supportive, kind people who are struggling too.

The Nitty-Gritty

  • Weekly LIVE Deep-Dive Group Coaching - I will have a topic to discuss and will answer any questions you have. If you can't make it, you can submit questions ahead of time, and yes you will be able to watch the recording later.
  • Small Community: Hosted in a PRIVATE Facebook Group, this will just be us. I will check in daily Tues to Saturday, but who are we kidding .. I'll often be around on the other days too.
  • Video Lessons - I have most of the games we will play as video tutorials and will post the relevant lessons as you are ready for them.
  • When (or if) you post your homework, I will review your videos and provide feedback. Videos should be kept to under 2 minutes (I will watch only the first 2 minutes). You can submit up to five 2-minute videos per day.
  • Once the 8 weeks are up, I may pop into the group on occasion, but I won't be watching videos or providing feedback. You will continue to have access to all of the material as long as Facebook continues to host the group.


We've got A's for your Q's

How much does it cost?

$849CDN gets you 8 weeks of small group coaching plus lifetime access to the community. Additional 1-on-1 training is available for a fee.

How do I know it's for me?

Are you committed to putting in the time to help your dog and to make walks enjoyable again? Are you comfortable in Facebook groups or willing to learn? Your homework will be tailored to your individual skill and confidence level.

Does it matter if I'm new to dog training?

Nope! If you're just getting started, we will take it slower and ensure you understand the key concepts before advancing your skills. You will also have the opportunity of watching and learning from more advanced teams.

How much do I have to participate?

It's totally up to you. I think you'll have more fun if you complete your homework and interact in the group, but you can do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.  

When can I get started?

Enrollment opens July 1st 2024 and the course begins July 16th. When you sign up, you will be sent an email with information about how to join the FB group.  

Does my location matter?

Absolutely not. This course is 100% on-line. This means you can read the materials, ask questions, and train your dog when your schedule and the weather allow rather than trying to make it to a specific time and location each week.
