Enjoy the art—and peace of mind—of easy dog walks and a friendly, relaxed companion

Is your love for your dog overshadowed by worry of their intense behaviors? Help is here.

 

Maybe your walks aren’t exactly going to plan with all the pulling.

Or even worse, your furry family member is barking, growling, and lunging on leash.

Maybe the companion you envisioned is too afraid to even leave your home, let alone go on a hike with you.

Or your new buddy is scaring away every vet or groomer that gets near.

 

I’ve been there, too. I know firsthand how isolating it is to have a dog with reactive behaviors.

 

With over 10 years experience transforming chaotic reactivity into peace and calm, I’m confident I can help you transform your dog’s intense behaviors into a beautiful masterpiece.

You no longer have to live in fear of what your dog might do next.
 

The art and peace of mind of a relaxed companion is one easy click away!

I’d love to help with:

 

  • Lunging, barking, and growling at other dogs on walks

  • Freezing or bolting during walks

  • Barking, growling, snapping at family members

  • Barking, growling, snapping at visitors or strangers

  • Barking, growling, snapping during vet/ grooming visits

  • Other related, troubling behaviors—tell me what’s going on

 

Most reactive and aggressive dog behaviors are driven by fear. Some cases can be fully turned around. All can be significantly improved. I’d love to bring you and your dog relief from these troubling behaviors.

Reilly.jpeg

Reilly sniffs her way over to meet Kylie in person for the first time after a 6-month virtual training package. Before training, Reilly was too fearful to go on walks or see any new people without barking.

"Reilly is flourishing in our routine"

"Last week we went to a picnic at the park. Lots of strangers and loud noises, music and she did fantastic!!! ... She is still making improvements every day ... It really has been a beautiful transition to watch, and her journey has been slow but it's amazing to be a part of!"

 Jeri & Reilly

"Kylie couldn't have been a more perfect fit!"

"I adopted an anxious adult dog and decided to try some online training. I found Art of Behavior and Kylie couldn't have been a more perfect fit! She had lots of experience helping develop confidence in dogs and gave us lots of tips, tricks and tools/games to help build Sammy's confidence.

Kylie tailored each training to Sammy. I really appreciate being able to talk to her in the Zoom Office Hours between our sessions. I'm very happy with how Sammy progressed and how thoughtful and attentive Kylie was!"


 Sarah and Sammy

Before training, Sammy wasn't interested in doing much and seemed depressed. After building his confidence via enrichment and training games, he's exuberant, plays, and trusts his new family to pet him.

"Kylie saved my relationship with my dog"

​"My dog Ivan used to be very insecure, and it affected our entire lives. He was growling and snapping constantly, and we were both very frustrated. I didn't even really like him, but Kylie helped me understand him and work through his insecurities so I could discover the sweet, affectionate, smart dog that he is.

I was so close to giving up on him so many times and Kylie was such a good role model and support for me. [Working with her] improved Ivan's quality of life so much and literally changed my life."


— Cham & Ivan

Ivan showed classic herding dog hypervigilance that evolved into fearful, reactive behaviors. After teaching his person how to meet his needs and working on a behavior modification plan, he's now a confident, friendly companion.
