This is perfect for you IF:

  • You’re tired of your dog NOT responding to you, even with high-value treats
  • You’ve tried waving toys or treats around but nothing happened
  • Your dog is always pulling you toward the next distraction
  • Finally say goodbye to your dog barking, lunging and “losing it” on walks
  • No more pulling on leash, no more dragging you around
  • Relax when you’re out & about with your dog – because you know they will be good!
  • No more dreading walks. You’ll look forward to taking your dog outside!

Why we created Focus in Public 2.0

We recently asked our Instagram followers what their biggest worries were regarding their dog’s behavior in public.
And oh boy, did we get a lot of responses!

My dog barks the minute we go outside if anyone is within 100 feet
I want the world to see how wonderful my dog is, not just freaked out and barking
When she is so happy to see other dogs but I need her to focus on me to be safe, I feel bad
I’m embarrassed when dogs or humans pass by and I look like an owner who has “no control” over their dog 🙁
So frustrating when a dog passes by and my dog starts pulling and barking with no control
I would love to be able to walk my dog in a new environment without her pulling constantly.

We developed Focus in Public so that we can …

Help you stop feeling embarrassed to take your dog out

Make it enjoyable for you to take your dog along

Make it possible for you to get compliments about your dog’s awesome behavior

The big secret of Focus in Public is that we take the dog’s “overall brain power” into account.

If we put a dog into a situation they are not prepared for, they will fail to focus on us.

This not only leads to a bad training session, instead it teaches the dog not to focus on you.

Being distracted by the environment can be very rewarding in many cases!  Your dog is rewarded for running off to sniff bushes or saying hi to strangers.

We have the methodology to change it.

In our Focus in Public online class, we advance skills gradually through increasingly challenging activities. That means we will never put our dog into training situations where they’re guaranteed to fail.

Instead, each and every skill is carefully taught in incrementally advancing difficulties, so that our dog can rehearse being good right from the start.

don’t just take our word for it.

Take a look at this.

We gave early access to a few select students … check out their feedback!

We didn’t use “only perfect dogs” in the videos.

The dogs in our videos come from a wide variety of backgrounds:

  • Purebred dogs
  • Mixed breeds
  • Rescue dogs
  • Former stray dogs
  • Show dogs
  • Puppies
  • Seniors
  • Dogs with a history of biting.
  • A sighthound
  • A dog that was rehomed 4 times before finding her forever home.

If they can do it … your dog can, too.

Here are the crucial skills your dog will master in this course

Food Engagement

The first step in teaching any behavior is getting your dog engaged with you and interested in your rewards.

Whether you have struggled with your dog taking treats at home or out & about, in this section we explain in detail how to “level up” your treat delivery.

Handler Interactions

“Watch me” games, hand touches, spins etc. – in this section you will learn the foundations of interactive skills. 

We teach every behavior at home first and gradually advance it through different environments.

Object Interactions

This is especially good for dogs that love to explore their environment – let’s make you part of this exploration!

In this section you will teach your dog Paws Up and Up Up and learn how to utilize these skills in any new situation.

Heeling/Leash Walking

Wouldn’t it be nice if your dog could just walk by your side without pulling? It is possible.

We will start at home and gradually advance your dog’s heeling skills through a variety of different places, until they can walk nicely by your side anywhere you go.

Mat Work/Settling

Want to bring your dog along to patios or have them settle on a blanket during a picnic at the park?

Let’s teach them!

Every dog can learn how to lie down calmly on a mat and relax, no matter where you go. 

In this section we show you the progression in detail, and also teach you some fun mat work variation games!

Car Manners

Is your dog trying to barge out of your car as soon as you open the door an inch?

This is not only rude … but very dangerous!

We will teach your dog to stay in your car until released. Even if you tie your shoes or check your phone. By the end of this section your dog knows to wait politely until you tell them it’s time to hop out.


In this section we discuss troubleshooting ideas. If you are stuck teaching a specific behavior or working in a certain setting … we have many ideas for how to turn this from frustration into a training success!

Prey Drive

Squirrels. Pigeons. Ducks. 

Need I say more?

In these lessons you will learn the concept of the “Second Best Choice” and how we can use it to redirect our dog’s prey drive!

Student Training Sessions

Wondering what other dog owners’ training looks like?

We filmed several students and their dogs training both at home and out and about. 

They are dog owners just like you. Watch them succeed and do the same!

With this course, you also get treats! Six bonuses to help you live a happy, healthy life together with your dog

Inge Blythe

I am SO happy we signed up for this course! I learned more about my dog's reactivity in the first two lessons than I did in multiple sessions with a private dog trainer. My dog Moka and I are about halfway through the course and not only do I now understand her reactivity better, we are also seeing slow but sure results!! Steffi is amazing not only in how she presents her material, but also in the fact that she responds personally to every single individual who might have specific questions about their dog, which is pretty unheard of especially in an online class where thousands of people take it. She is truly dedicated to helping us and I am so grateful. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other classes when we finish this one. I know I will be coming back to the information over and over again. Thank you Steffi 🙏🙏🙏

Sarah Wisniewski

I am currently in the reactivity course and it’s amazing! It is so educational and so motivating. Not only is the course very extensive and thorough, but you are able to read and leave questions that get answered the next day at the latest! It helps you get your training moving quickly and at a great pace! Very very happy with it!

Morgan Macintosh

This was probably the best online program I've come across for reactive dogs! She covers all different forms of reactivity, educates the reader on some common terms (counter conditioning, classical conditioning, desensitization etc), gives step by step instructions in a video and written form on how to prevent the reactivity but also what to do if it happens.
I also liked that you cover the dog as a whole in the form of talking about physical and mental exercise. (Hierarchy of dog needs)
Honestly covers everything a reactive dog owner should know but in the simplest comprehensible way.
For reactive dog owners I would recommend this package then her other packages later on specifically targeting obedience behaviours like walking on leash, recall and extras such as the brain game package. So many reactive dog owners jump right into obedience programs such as how to walk good on leash etc when they actually need a different form of training to target the emotion behind the unwanted behaviour. Classical conditioning THEN counter conditioning.

nathalie demeurie

I was a little suspicious about online training, I have to admit, but SprititDog blew me away. First, the content is positive, science based, takes into account your dog as an individual and the methods just work! Steffi has some really incredible ideas. Second, I had never had things explained to me so well before. The lessons are so well thought out and everything is structured and presented in a way that's both really smart and easy to follow. Third, customer service is incredible. You can ask questions and you get help and answers quickly, and you can just feel how passionate they are about helping us help our dogs. I found a few hours here already more helpful than any trainer I've ever hired in person. I really wish I had found SpiritDog years ago!

Derry Bunting

Hi Steffi Just a few days in and I would already highly recommend your Tackling Reactivity Program to anyone with a highly reactive dog! Thor (our Jack Russell) & I have been practicing the sniffing exercise using scattered treats for several days now and have progressed to doing this in longer lawn grass on our outdoor walks morning and night. Thor is very reactive to other dogs and nothing has helped but this evening when we encountered 2 other dogs at different times he began to get agitated but when I tossed his treats in the grass he was more interested in sniffing for his treats than leaping on his leash and barking at the other dogs! A very promising start! Thanks! Derry Bunting and Thor Ragnarock

Heather Stewart

I am really enjoying this course, Tackling Reactivity. The explanations and supporting videos are very clear. I like Steffi's no-nonsense and straightforward way of describing what she means. We are only beginners at the reactivity training but I feel I have enough confidence to succeed. I have also tried other trainers' methods but find this one precise and without lots of "hype". Access to other users' comments is very useful and seeing SpiritDog's responses is informative.

Ellen Grol

The Tackling Reactivity Course of Spirit Dog Training really has given me exactly what I needed to not only understand why my dog behaves like she does, it also offers very helpful tools for counterconditioning and training. Since I was able to discuss particular problems with a professional dog trainer I could personalise the training for my specific situation. My dog and I still have a way to go but this course already absolutely exceeds my expectations.

Terry Harmon Neff

I am so pleased with myself for moving forward with training and taking the Spiritdog training reactivity course. I never expected immediate miracles but after 2mos I can definitely see a calmer dog (2.5 yo rescue dog I adopted at 10mos old) in most situations that were over and above him prior to your guidance. Every email and message you post takes me to a another level of knowing how to best train. This retired senior from north of Boston 'thanks you' every day.

Deborah Gabbert

As a professional dog trainer, I am constantly learning from other trainers to improve my art and skill. I also like to review on line training programs to recommend to clients to enhance the learning process since I do not have such content of my own. I have been reviewing Spirit Dog's Tackling Reactivity course and am delighted. Steffi is extremely knowledgeable and her program is thorough and detailed. She provides students with great clarity on essential topics and phenomenal support with 24/7 answers to questions and terrific email reminders and teaching tidbits. I have already recommended this course to others and I look forward to reviewing more Spirit Dog courses!

Julia Hoffmann

I love the positivity of Spirit Dog Training! The fun and free December games are a great way to bond and work with my pup. With so many people out there training with punishment and shock collars, it is refreshing to have trainers who really want to help you love everything about your dog and teach you to have your dog love working with you and not afraid of being punished! Thanks, Spirit for providing free content as well as low cost classes that anyone can do.

Mar Sto

I just started the Tacking Reactivity and it has provided the missing piece and I'm already seeing amazing results with my rescue dog! I previously spent hundreds of dollars on private training lessons, group Reactivity classes and other online courses. The suggestions here are so much easier to follow and having the videos is so helpful. I'm finally feeling hopeful that someday we will be able to go on a "normal" dog walk without him going ballistic at the sight of another dog.

Nel Broers

There's so much to love about the SpiritDog training! After having read many books, followed many courses and sought help of in-person trainers, we were still struggling with behavioral issues of our canine companion. The clear, extensive online course and very responsive staff of SpiritDog, has been most supportive to us and our reactive dog of everything we have tried thus far. Thank you!

Erika Miller

Training a pup is not an easy task, it takes time, consistency, patience and the right people leading the way. After my first few lessons I have already seen a huge change in my pup. The course, Steffi, and Elise are amazing. I truly enjoy logging in to learn how to help my pup. The lessons are extremely informational and the feedback to questions is like having a trainer right here with us! I am not even half-way through the course and can't wait to see what the rest of it brings!! Thank you all for helping me learn how to help my are amazing!!!

Jon Sanford

I’ve already learned so much from just a few days of the online Tackling Reactivity course. I can’t wait to keep working my way through the course!

Pernille Joost

We are about 1/2 through the course - and already loving it! Everything is very simply explained - From the theory behind, the practical stuff, preparation, what to expect and the actual training. I love that it has text, illustrations, videos, comments and answers and short quizzes. Steffi (the trainer) seems very empathetic and conveys great patience and understanding of the struggles and frustrations that come with having a reactive dog. We've only just started, but I've seen changes, and my whole attitude to working with my boys reactivity has changed - I feel confident, optimistic and in safe hands with this course and trainer! I highly recommend this course for anyone struggling with a reactive dog - and who does not wish to use aversive methods 🙂


 I really like this course. I am taking the reactivity course. It is very simple, yet so effective! I had given up hope, after having done 2 months of professional training and still having a reactive dog. However this course gave me hope again! I especially appreciate the quick responses and feedback from the trainers when you have a question.

Tiffany Ashton Baker

I am absolutely loving this course! I have learned so much already and cant wait to put it all into practice. My dog is calmer and I know how to avoid situations that would cause her to become reactive and more importantly how to handle those situations when they may arrive. I am thrilled to have found this course and recommend it 100%.

Renee Bolz

Recently completed this online course and found it so informative – has helped so much with my reactive dog! We continue with our training daily but now I feel like I know what to do and understand her behavior!!

Valerie Chang

We’re working our way through the Tackling Reactivity course, and it’s great. I have taken my dogs to many courses over the years, hired trainers and purchased other online courses, and this is absolutely the best. Thank you!

Rebecca Adelman

Wow! we've seen such drastic improvements with our reactive dog by just implementing some of the suggestions in the first couple of lessons. I can't wait to see how far we will come after finishing all the lessons with our girl! Thank you Steffi for these amazing classes and helping us tackle our dog's reactive behavior! I wish we would have found you sooner!


My dog is 5 yrs old and unbelievably reactive to other dogs on leash; she looks and sounds like she wants to eat them and this happens all of the time. She is a rescue, and after having puppies on the street I though this behaviour was absolutely engrained and was just something i would have to accept. We are just a couple of weeks into the reactivity course and I am seeing small changes in her attention toward me when facing her triggers. This in itself has been a huge step as we've been to group classes and had a personal trainer at home, both of which were not effective in their methods. The lessons are very informative and easy to follow. They give us a great foundation of understanding why our dogs react the way they do, then small steps to make the training effective. It's taking a lot of consistency on my part but absolutely worth it when seeing gradual changes. The trainers are very attentive to the students and are there through the process, promptly answering questions as I'm facing new challenges. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone with a reactive dog; we're both learning so much together!

Ariel Jeffcoat

I purchased the Reactivity Bundle after hitting a wall with our training and it was the best thing I could have done, it was informative, easy to understand and gave a great foundation for at home, then applying it outdoors as well, and my dog has made so much progress with me just having the extra bit of knowledge. I highly recommend


I have recently enrolled in the Tackling Reactivity course. I must say prior to enrolment i was quite skeptical especially when the course was delivered online without a face to face trainer to help problem solve. I have a 15 month old Toy Moodle- he is a Covid puppy. Being a first pet owner I have no idea how important socialisation is for Meeko. I thought as long as we bring him out for a walk and play in the park he should be ok. When he was growing up we have a few visitors that came over to the house and played with him without any issues. The problem started when he turned 1. When our country's 6 months lockdown was lifted, Meeko became anxious in the park.Going to the shops became very stressful for the family as he got defensive and reactive to people and dogs that came near him. This went on for a few months until i stumbled across Spirit Dog Training. This course was carefully prepared from the science behind the "Why" dogs are reactive to "How" we can manage and then "Train" to overcome that behaviour. It was eye opening for me even before the actual training began. What really struck me most was to understand how my dog's constant "Rehearsal" of his reactivity can ultimately be deeply ingrained into him and if that is not resolved, it will be even harder to untrain that behaviour. Steffi taught us to constantly be aware of the "triggers" that will set him off and help train him to associate that trigger to something positive. The other thing that i found very useful was how clear Steffi was in her teaching of the training "Mechanics". I realised my previous training methods had flaws hence the progress was slow. Steffi and her team is very prompt with their response to any comments or questions you have with any training issues. It's like having a real trainer next to you except you learn way more than when you are in a class setting. I am super happy with this course. My dog is already learning to focus on me more . I am slowly getting Meeko to be a little more accepting of people and dogs in public at a distance. I have to keep reminding myself that there is no quick fix for the Reactivity problem. I have to protect Meeko's confidence so that the training will not go in vain. Highly Recommend ! Give it a go !!

Who is this for?

This is the course for you if you are struggling with a distracted, overly energetic & unruly dog in public. If your dog is overly excited or stimulated – we can work on this energy and channel it into good behavior.

If you have been hoping your dog will “grow out of” barking and pulling on leash … nope. We will need to train that!

Focus in Public 2.0 is also the perfect course for graduates of our Tackling Reactivity course that are looking for the next steps in their dog’s training.

Who is this not for?

A dog that has a strong negative response to triggers is not yet ready for perfecting behavior in public. They need to work on their reactivity first.

Is your dog “angry” or “mad” at people and dogs?

Does your dog want others to disappear and leave them alone?

Then this is not the right course for you.The curriculum is not suitable for severely reactive dogs.

If you are struggling with reactivity, please check out our Tackling Reactivity course.

Having a dog that’s unruly when out and about is …






But it does not have to be that way.

You have three options …

Option #1: Trial and error. 

You can consume all the free videos on the internet. It could work.

But it will take way longer than it should. 

Plus, you will get a lot of conflicting advice.
Different training methodologies. Different progression timelines. 

No personalized feedback if you get stuck and need individual help.

And what if you followed the wrong advice?

Option #2: Go with 1-on-1 trainers or other online courses.

Honestly – as long as you and your dog succeed, I don’t care who you train with!

I want every dog owner to enjoy calm walks and stress-free outings with their dogs. Whether you learn that with me or someone else – both are good for me.

The only thing I do not like is to see dog owners being “stuck” and frustrated with training. 

Whatever training option you pick, make sure that it comes with a lot of personalized feedback

Every dog and owner team is unique. Individualized instructions are what really helps them excel.

Option #3: FIP 2.0. 

Or … you could join us and get access to over 150 lessons showing over 15 different dogs learning focus skills.

You will learn how to plan your training so that your dog succeeds in rehearsing wanted behavior.

You will not get stuck with our unlimited trainer feedback. 

I promise that your dog will improve if you take action now. 

And if you don’t like it – no problem. You are always protected with our 60-day money back guarantee.

“I have tried other trainings before, how is this different?”

And answers to other big questions

Question #1: “I have tried other trainings before, how is this different?”

Most trainers use inefficient methods when working with reactivity, which results in poor outcomes.
Our course however teaches a unique method combining counterconditioning and sniffing. In this process we change how your dog feels about his triggers. As a result, he will be calm, relaxed and focused.
Because we help you change your dog’s behavior at the root, the training will transform him.

Question #2: “What happens if I get stuck and need extra guidance?”

Every dog is an individual and every situation is unique! With that comes the need for personal feedback during training.

Our course includes unlimited feedback from our professional trainer. Ask as many questions as you like – we are happy to help and want to watch you succeed!

Question #3: “What if this course doesn’t work for my dog?

Our purchases are risk-free! We have a 100% money-back guarantee and will gladly refund your money within the first 60 days if you are unhappy for any reason.

Question #4: “I don’t want to punish or correct my dog. Does this course use these methods?”

We do not utilize or recommend any kind of physical or verbal corrections.

This course does not make use of corrective collars, leash pops, harsh words or other means of intimidation or punishment.

Question #5: “My dog is not food-driven, will this still work?”

Every animal is food-driven – if they were not, they would be dead.

The reasons many dogs refuse treats are either that they are too stressed to eat or that we have not yet found the treats they REALLY love.

In this class, we discuss in detail how to address both possible causes. We teach you about how to find the right treats for your dog, as well as how to react if your dog refuses treats during training.

So far every single student has succeeded in getting their dog to take treats!

Question #6: “I don’t want to just bribe my dog with treats to behave!”

Good – because we also don’t want you to do that!

In this course, we use treats to change the dog’s “CER” (conditioned emotional response). In the beginning you will use many treats, but over time the dog’s actual feelings about his triggers change and you can fade the treats – your dog will still behave.

Why Focus in Public “2.0” ?

I first released a Focus in Public online course in early 2020. 

This original course included all foundation skills for focussing in public: leash walking, mat work, training in public spaces …

… but as time went on and more students were studying it, I started to see areas of improvement.

I noticed my students needed:

  • More in-depth training videos for dogs that get over stimulated and as a result bark, pull and lunge
  • Training videos specifically for prey drive (dogs that go crazy for squirrels – I am looking at you!)
  • Training videos with a larger variety of dogs (Focus in Public 1.0 featured only 4 dogs – this one over 15!)
  • Student training videos showing real-life training of clients who are using our methods

So a few months ago we set out to start filming a brandnew course … and now Focus in Public 2.0 is ready for you!
