Specializing in
Aggression and Reactivity

A comprehensive approach to training

Behaviour Modification

Barky Lungey Dog? Feeling stressed taking your dog out in public? Worried about having people come to your home? 

Whether your dog is acting up out of fear, frustration, or territorial aggression, we will create a comprehensive plan to change why your dog behaves this way. You will learn skills to change your dog's behaviour and emotional state as well as  management tools to get you through day to day while you train.

Foundations

New puppy?  New Dog? Looking to get started on the right paw? Pet manners, skills for your hiking buddy, or sports foundations, we create a program personalized to your needs.

About Private Lessons (Online and In-Person Options)

Private lessons can occur via Zoom, in your home, or in a public location most suited to your dog’s needs.  After each lesson, you will receive a detailed lesson summary via email.  If you have committed to a package, support is included via email or video (Marco Polo).

Group Classes

Group Classes are offered for Nosework and Disc. Please email christina@positive.dog for more information. On occasion, group classes are offered on advanced topics.  We do not offer group classes for puppy foundations or reactivity as dogs and their people very often find them overwhelming, and would benefit much more from a private lesson or two to focus on their individual needs.

What People Are Saying:

We have had an amazing training experience with four kids and pup is doing great! Trainer is thoughtful with incredibly useful tips. Definitely recommend this trainer
Christina is very knowledgeable about dog behaviour and is an excellent teacher. Her seminars and classes not only teach skills but also give insights into why your dog might be struggling. Every lesson, private, class or seminar, has been well prepared and I have come away with new ideas to work on with my dogs. I feel that Christina loves to help bring out the best possible relationship between dog and human that she can.
Excellent trainer …. very knowledgeable in dog behaviour and I love her approach to dealing with reactive dogs. Love  her easy relaxed style of teaching …. she makes it easy for even us beginners to ‘get it’. Highly recommended.
So thankful for the training help that Christina provided us for our reactive/fearful dog Phoebe. Christina’s passion, knowledge, skills and dedication to positive training methods shines through the changes we’ve seen in our Phoebe in just a few lessons! We continue to work on our goals and look forward to progressing through more training with Positive Dog!
Christina is an excellent dog trainer and teacher. If you want a knowledgeable trainer who has your dog’s best interests at heart and who uses science based training methods, look no further. I highly recommend her!
Christina helped me with a reactive foster and I was so grateful for the methods and education she provided. She gave me the tools to be able to help this dog learn how to appropriately greet new dogs, and she did it with positive training methods NOT harmful or painful methods. Thank you Christina!
