Does your dog pull you down the street? Do you avoid walks because your dog has no leash manners? Leash walking can be troublesome to train because it requires human consistency and doesn’t come naturally to dogs. Mastering the mechanics is difficult, add endless outside distractions and leash walking becomes downright overwhelming!
In this video, Brandi will demonstrate exercises to get your dog moving nicely on leash. She’ll also show you an easy “leave it” technique so he stops picking up nasty items on the street. The video includes leash walking exercises for both large and small dogs.

Does your dog growl when you approach his food, toys, bones, or dog bed? In this video, Brandi will show you

Resource guarding is a very serious behavioral issue, please follow the exercises in this video very closely and with progressing difficulty to prevent injury or worsening your dog’s behavior. It’s important to restrict access to items that cause growling during the training process to ensure safety. Please also contact a local trainer so you continue to progress and instill kind leadership to your dog. Visit www.ccpdt.org or www.apdt.com to find a trainer in your area. For further information, Mine! A Practical Guide to Resource Guarding by Jean Donaldson, is a remarkable book on the topic.

Does your dog bark while you are at work, destroy your home when you go out to dinner, or urinate or defecate in the house—only when alone? Separation anxiety is a serious behavioral issue causing life-altering emotional distress to you and your dog.
Brandi will demonstrate new ways to interact with your dog to build confidence, give you exercises to reduce home alone anxiety, and show you techniques to lessen the stress while you work through departure exercises. Methods are designed for dogs who have mild separation anxiety or begin the process of easing severe separation anxiety. We highly recommend consulting with a separation anxiety specialist and your veterinarian if your dog’s anxiety persists. I’ll be Home Soon: How to Prevent and Treat Separation Anxiety by Patricia B. McConnell Ph.D. is a wonderful compliment to this video.
