A comprehensive hour long seminar that covers why some dogs suffer from fear and/or reactivity concerns. It will help you better understand your dog's behaviour and give you a look at things from their perspective. Over an hour you will learn how to understand your dog's communication, how to best communicate to them in a clear and appropriate manner and the foundation skills to being resolving your dog's reactivity or to help them face their fears.
If you live with a dog with fear or reactivity concerns, this is a session that you do not want to miss! We understand how embarrassing, scary and/or frustrating it can be to live with a dog with these concerns. Life with a fearful/reactive dog is full of challenges, but can result in one of the most rewarding and special relationships you can have with your dog. This happens with understanding their suffering and gaining the tools to help them feel safe and comfortable in our busy human world. As a result, you will gain the confidence to take your dog with you anywhere!
Hailee is an avid animal lover who has had a passion for working with dogs all her life. She has been working with dogma for over eight years now and has thoroughly enjoyed advancing her career in the dog world.
She was part of the first group of students to graduate from the dogma Apprenticeship Program and was later invited to join the training team here at dogma. Teaching classes is such a joy for her that it is difficult to put it into words. Her passion for dog training developed because she was volunteering at the shelter and was troubled by how many young healthy dogs were being surrendered due to lack of socialization and obedience skills causing their owners to get so frustrated that they gave up on them. Hailee's goal as a classroom instructor is to help all her students gain the foundation needed to have a long and happy life with their pets.
Hailee obtained her CPDT-KA and CPDT-KSA in 2012, but her passion for dogs does not end there. Her goal is to get her certification in Canine Reiki. Hailee shares her home with her dog, Turbo, and cat, Sheldon (who also goes out on leash and explores the world with his brother!).
