How to use Online Coaching


Similar to "human" counseling, it is important to gather information to best support your dog's behavior modification needs and well-being. Training, learning and behavior adjustment takes time, practice and a positive attitude.   

After the initial Canine Behavior Intake (assessment) is filled out and emailed to Canine Coach, you will be informed if this is an effective option for you and your dog. Clarification / appointment schedule typically takes 2-4 days. The Intake is the first step of awareness and change happens.

Email coaching is set up in 30, 45 or 1-hour sessions. Telephone Advising is an option and set up the same way. Online coaching with ZOOM can be scheduled. A convenient time is arranged to focus on you and your dog and a link sent to you at at certain date and time.  

Taking the first step is empowering. If this is for you ... journey below and let’s begin the process together.

As a professional, it is my responsibility to offer realistic skills and resources to assist you in creating positive change for your puppy/dog's education and well-being that are achievable and realistic.

Coaching can help you resolve issues like housetraining, barking, lunging, mouthing, jumping, adolescent issues, fears and phobias, separation anxiety and dog-dog or other species issues. I will let you know if I can help online or whether this requires in-person coaching as a more effective and safe approach.

There are no guarantees and obvious limitations. Some behaviors may too ingrained, habitual and/or reactive to be modified without personal, long-term guidance, Veterinary intervention and medication. Video may be required to observe behaviors. For a list of behavior consultants refer to the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants or Certified Professional Dog Trainers.

Oftentimes, a small intuitive change can make a big difference. It requires commitment from you (and others) who come in contact with your dog, to learn new ways of interacting. Embracing change needs patience, compassion and a willingness to listen and practice daily that may be different from what you are use too. It may enlighten your life too.

Join me in a deep nose-to-navel breath, imagining you and your dog can relax, play and simply be without stress for a few moments ... Breathing in for 4-8 seconds ... Holding for 4-8 ... Slowly Exhaling for 4-8 breaths. Give yourself permission to take 10-minutes a day to quiet your mind. Let thoughts flow. If you get stuck, create a phrase to say to yourself like “drop it” or “SPOT - STOP - SWAP” – letting it go to the universe. Ten minutes a day can lower your stress level and extend your and your dog’s life. Upset your mind thoughts with a simple 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 GO.
