Or has someone casually said your dog was "aggressive"? Could you both use a little more confidence out on walks? You're not alone. Expecting our dogs to be relaxed in an urban environment is a big ask and we're here to help! You're here because you're ready to go from chaos to calm.


Embark on a unique journey with your dog, where every step becomes an exploration of understanding and harmony. Picture yourself and your furry companion as cosmic explorers, venturing into the depths of your dog's emotions. Each interaction becomes a chance to understand their universe and the forces that shape their behavior.

Our Relaxed Rover coaching program isn't just reactive dog training. It's all about enrichment, engagement, and connection! Our clients typically have dogs who react to and/or bark at other dogs (or skateboarders, squirrels, people), who are afraid of noises,  or who pull on leash and appear uninterested in their handlers. They also struggle with puppies or rescues who are new to walking on a leash or navigating city terrain and noises while they are simultaneously working on at-home behaviors.

If you would like us to train your dog for you, please visit our day training page.

Why do you offer virtual sessions?

Virtual sessions allow us creativity and flexibility. 

People-reactive dogs typically don't benefit from another person in the room or environment right off the bat so meeting online is far less stressful for everyone. We can also record virtual sessions for you to review later. The benefits will be immediately evident.

The ratio of in-person to online sessions will depend on your unique circumstances. All journeys begin with one step no matter where we are. Reactive dog training starts with as few distractions as possible, in an area in which your dog already feels safe. This is usually in your home.

After completing our program you will:

  • Better communicatiion with your dog

  • Have the necessary tools to maintain what you've learned

  • Learn how to meet your dog's needs

  • Use patterns and games to train your dog

  • Understand what reactivity/fear/stress are and why they happen

  • Learn to work with your dog at a comfortable distance from triggers

  • Enjoy happier, more relaxed outings with your confident dog!

We are pleased to offer sliding scale options to those in need.

What do I need to get started? 


  • Initial consultation is a requirement for all new clients

  • A clicker, treat bag, harness, minimum 6’ leash (preferably 8-10') with traffic handle and optional biothane long line (15-20 feet) 

  • Treats (pea sized) 

  • Ability to utilize the internet and a variety of computer programs and /or phone apps to record videos, get feedback, meet with trainer

  • Handsfree device (earbuds, in-ear headphones, Bluetooth headset) that will allow you to communicate with your coach during training sessions in the event they may be working with another dog in the distance

  • Dog should have good name recognition (and if not, we'll get you on your way in our very first session)

Please be advised that we are currently not qualified to handle major aggression cases or instances where professionally diagnosed separation anxiety is your only concern. Most trainers are not, despite offers to “fix” your dog. If your dog is truly aggressive or poses a threat to itself, other humans or animals and/or has a history of biting, we will be able to refer you to a highly qualified individual or business. Or feel free to search on your own for a certified and qualified behaviorist here and here. If you would still like to discuss your dog and have us help you determine your options, please feel free to book a consult.
