with Melissa Dallier of ACanineAffinity, Training Advocate

Wednesday, Apr 14, 6 PM MDT

This support group is for people who are living with dogs who struggle in the outside world Choose how you would like to access the recording below

Please join me for bi-monthly support groups as we discuss what it's like to love and live with dogs struggling with fears and anxieties and how we can help each other cope, and help our dogs feel safe and supported along the way.


This week we will be chatting all about our worried walkers, reactive rovers, fearful fidos - AKA we are the "Midnight Walkers Club". If you live with and love a dog who generally finds the outside world a bit overwhelming, you are not alone and this is the place for you!


Does your dog?

  • Bark and lunge at people or dogs
  • Refuse to walk due to environmental fear (noises, people, dogs, EVERYTHING)
  • Jump at the sight of his own shadow
  • Tremble when people appear
  • Refuse treats on walks


Do you envy friends who?

  • Always brag about their dog park friends?
  • Enjoying relaxing time at cafe's with their dogs?
  • Have lots of doggy play dates?
  • Walk during normal times in busy places?
  • Never seem to worry?


You are not alone in feeling like you just wish you had a "normal dog" - but remember all dogs have stuff and our sensitive pups aren't giving us a hard time they are having a hard time.

Let's use this hour to chat, relate, share stories and connect. I'll share tips on ways to build confidence gradually and we can all come away knowing we are not alone!


Here's your first hint - not all dogs NEED walks... especially if they are doing more damage than good. We will talk ways to enrich your dog's daily life at home and find the activities you can enjoy together!


Join me on Wednesday April 14th at 8pm EST for this support group and informal chat!
