reactive dog training

The Outdoor Dog specialises in reactivity problem behaviours. Many dogs can struggle in different situations. This could include - 

  • Displaying reactive behaviour when outside making walking your dog very challenging, stressful and even sometimes embarrassing!

  • Showing unwanted behaviours due to frustrating including jumping, nipping and biting at you and their lead when out walking

  • Excess barking in your home and/or garden

  • Display fear, stress and anxiety

  • Resource guarding

Let me help you solve and manage your dog's behaviours so you can enjoy outdoor

adventures together!

"Obama was extremely reactive to dogs. After working on building his confidence he greets and plays with dogs with no problems and I can easily call him away from dogs he seems wary of. 

It's honestly like having a new dog."

Behavioural Session Packages

The Outdoor Dog offers behavioural solution packages, rather than one-off sessions. I find this more effective because - 

  • I can support you throughout your dog's training journey.

  • I can tailor-make the training to your and your dog's needs.

  • We can progress the training at each visit and ensure we are on track.

  • You know what commitment is needed to ensure you have all the tools you need to train your dog. 

Sessions can take place Monday to Saturday; with morning, afternoon and evening* sessions available. 

*Evening sessions throughout winter are available for initial zoom calls - it is always best to train in daylight.

Behaviour Session Package

What is included - 

  • Gathering details on your dog and training goals so I can plan for our time together.

  • Veterinary referral and liaison, as required.

  • 90-minute Zoom consultation with Karen.

    We will talk about the issues you are having, your goals, why your dog behaving the way they are. With behavioural cases we will work through how to reduce your dog's stress (and yours!) and how to set your dog up for success before we start training.
