    The Relax Protocol- Helping the reactive dog

    The reactive dog is a very common behavior problem in our world today. Dogs have a hard time with barriers; Fences, Doors, and Leashes. This Program is designed to help owners understand why their dog is behaving in this way. We will encourage good behavior around dogs and people. We will teach you and your dog to RELAX!

    Building a confident dog

    This program is designed to build confidence for dogs that are afraid. We will encourage the dogs to play with new items and work towards agility equipment. We will also work on nose/scent work to help give the fearful dog a job and in return it will build confidence.

    Remember a problem behavior like Fear or Reactivity are not only hard for the owner, the dogs that have these issues can not enjoy life as well.

    Fortunate Fido is here to help you and Fido live a better life.
