Fall is my favorite season and this year will be filled with all new types of FUN!
- Beginning Nov 1st I will no longer be taking any new clients until 2023!
- Nov 6th-12th I will be totally out of service.

Reactive Dog Struggles and Strategies
As any dog parent who is struggling with a reactive dog knows, life is spent in management and/or response mode. The dog can only be walked certain routes or certain times a day, guests are a rare occasion, and the idea of taking this dog in vacation is terrifying. As owners we often feel ashamed of our dog's behaviors and may get bothered by other dogs being able to enjoy a park or hiking trail. Owners often become reactive too, yelling for other people to leash their dog, pulling their dog in tighter and tighter as a person/dog walks passed, and yes venting about encounters on social media. But really reactive dog owners often feel bad for their dogs, are frustrated because they don't know what to do, and resort to lashing out at others.
- TO BE SAFE!
- To create distance from others.
- To love and care for their dog the best they can.
