Is your dog’s fear or reactivity keeping you isolated?

When you have a reactive or fearful dog, even the smallest unexpected encounters—like passing another dog or a bicycle on a path—can leave you shaken. It’s hard to enjoy a walk when you’re constantly afraid your dog will cower, lunge, or bark at others as you pass. Instead, you keep public outings to a minimum.

 

But there is light at the end of the tunnel. By understanding and addressing the root causes of your dog’s anxiety, I can help them regain confidence and reenter the world with peace.

Is your dog...

Barking or lunging at people or dogs?

Aggressive toward other dogs?

Jumpy at loud noises?

Anxious when left alone?

Nervous about going outside?

Going to the bathroom in their crate?

Shy or cowering at small changes?

Fearful when guests visit?

I can help with that.

The stress, frustration, and fear that come with owning a reactive or anxious dog can be crushing. My supportive approach takes your life into account. 

 

I’ll teach your dog to feel more at ease and relaxed in various situations, working together to build their confidence and reshape their reactions. Together, we’ll create a calmer, happier environment, leaving anxiety and fear behind.

When your dog benefits, so do you!

Imagine restoring a sense of calm and participating in the activities you once loved without worrying about how your dog will handle it. Fostering a sense of security and confidence in your canine companion paves the way for a happier, more harmonious life for everyone in your household.

Lou Anne - Reactive Review.jpeg

Gene is a wonderful dog - and people! - trainer! He has helped us with our little rescue pup that came with some trust and aggression issues. Thanks to his skills with all of us, we are all learning to recognize triggers, avoid them, and enjoy life together. Our Gus is such a sweet little guy, and the progress that we have all made due to Gene's expertise has greatly enriched our lives. Thanks, Gene, for all your work!

Linda - Reactive Review.jpeg

When we adopted our little rescue, Ringo, we had no idea he was so reactive and unfriendly towards other dogs and people. We hired Gene and k9wise to help us. With Gene, we saw positive results with Ringo right away. Ringo became more comfortable and confident, and we began experiencing a special bond with Ringo. We still have work to do with our little guy, but Gene has given us the tools and training we need to continue with the positive outcome we know we will have. We highly recommend k9wise and Gene’s one-on-one training. You won’t be disappointed.
