Your dog just can't control himself when the pizza delivery guy shows up, and oops, there goes your pizza! 

If these scenarios sound familiar, don't fret! Jumping is a common, natural but embarrassing issue. Learn why YOUR dog jumps by sending in details about your pup and even videos that Emily can address to provide specialized techniques tailored to YOUR dog to keep four on the floor.

Canine as a Second Language - Basic Body Language


Our dogs "talk" constantly through body language.  This online course will give you insight and knowledge as to how they "tell" us when they are stressed, anxious, happy and unsure.  Knowing the subtle language of dogs can avoid bites and fights.  This is a must for anyone who has contact with dogs - you will be surprised at what you learn!  



Advanced Body Language


You know the basics - whale eye, submissive grin, head turning and lip licking and many more.  This course will go beyond the basics and identify subtle body langue cues that signify stress, reactivity, fear and over arousal to help you avoid unwanted behaviors and situations - the results will be eye opening!
