In cases where I am coaching you to successfully socialize your puppy, work with your reactive, fearful,  and/or aggressive dog, it is usually necessary to accompany you to public places to experience “real life” situations.

These sessions usually last one hour and take place at pet friendly establishments, retail outlets and public parks.

You should always bring a good suppl y of soft delicious small treats, e.g. chopped boiled chicken breast, and easily available water supply for your dog.

I strongly recommend you have a treat bag to hold your treats rather than stuffing your pockets with chicken!

My favorite treat bag is the Rapid Rewards Dog Gone Good bag, available in my store HERE.


When working with food rewards it is essential to provide fresh clean drinking water at all times. Even slight dehydration can have a detrimental effect on the brain’s ability to learn. Did you know that?!

Please always wear sensible shoes – no flip flops – wear sunscreen and a hat
