Feeling overwhelmed?

Does your dog do any of these?

  • Jumping up

  • Pulling on the lead

  • Barking excessively

  • Problems staying home alone

  • Chasing small animals

  • Stopping on walks

  • Lunging at other dogs

  • Struggles with visitors

Have you tried obedience, socialization, or dog training classes, but felt like you needed more, or they were too much for your dog?

Have you sought help online, from family and friends, or even dog professionals, but find yourself more confused and overwhelmed about how to overcome your dog's frustrating  behaviors?

Helping you restore harmony in your relationship with your dog.

  • We love our dogs, and want to do our best for our furry family members.


  • We humans also have our own needs that must be met in order to live our best lives with our dogs.

  • If you are living with an anxious, excited, or reactive dog, it may feel like you're the only one, but you aren't!

  • Modern life is busier than ever, and many dogs are struggling to cope in the human world.


  • Dogs who are anxious, excited, or reactive, are "having" a hard time.  They are not trying to give us a hard time.

  • Once we understand the emotions behind their behaviors, it is much easier to help them navigate their environment, and thrive in our families.

  • I'm here to understand your needs, and help you and your dog learn the skills that will allow you to enjoy your unique lifestyle together.

Natalie & Milo

Kelley’s enthusiasm convinced to me to try out her simple, effective recommendations with Milo and her input has helped to improve our relationship even before my new job has started. Kelley also provided training on how to make leash-walking more enjoyable for both dog and owner, and how to handle encounters with other dogs in a manner that is supportive to Milo, so that he is less inclined to be reactionary.

Before meeting Kelley, I couldn’t fathom leaving Milo at home during a work day but her expert recommendations and ongoing support have enabled me to do so with much less anxiety because I know Milo’s quality of life won’t be compromised.
