What our past students say:

We had our best training session ever on Saturday at a huge park. Rocky was relaxed, watching other dogs, guys playing basketball—this bothers him when our neighbor boys play—and girls playing softball. He was great loose leash walking and sitting, as well as sniffing and scarfing up treats in the presence of all these triggers. We edged him a little closer to the girls, and his ears shot up and he froze a little. So let's back up, can he sit? And he sat and took a treat and we went on relaxing. It was amazing to see these behaviors kick in for my dog!

So, here's an update on Lucy the terrier. Background reminder: I live alone with Lucy. She bit me several times in her first weeks, but became very attached. Using your methods, we are now able to walk quietly on the street, and to welcome family members and friends into our home. I have successfully resumed dogsitting, and Lucy is willing to share me with other dogs. Currently, I am turning every sound from the street into a cuddle fest; a slammed car door, the UPS and mail trucks, the house builders working behind us, are all cues for extravagant affection. I think I'm going to recruit dog savvy people to come to the door as a next step. Thanks so much!

Steffi, this class has been so helpful. I appreciate so much how you can go at your own pace, have it forever to refer back to, the price is reasonable, I like the organization into units. Your lessons are easy to follow, especially with videos, and I can see the change in my dog after only a month.

I just finished the Tackling Reactivity online course and found it super insightful and beneficial! I’ve already started implementing the skills from the course into my training and am seeing huge benefit for my dog. I can’t wait to take more of Spirit Dog’s online courses!

Here's what they've said:

“Watching the reactive dog series. learning to identify the behaviors I see. Since we got our boy at 9 weeks, I wondered if he could see. I would Throw a treat and he could not find it. He does not know how to sniff. I have learned more in this video series in a few hours than from 4 trainers. It all makes sense now. Very excited and optimistic for our future❤️ can’t wait to continue the learning tomorrow. A+++, five stars, best money I ever spent for my dogs.”

"Steffi is incredible. There is nothing better than to play with your dog teaching him/her new tricks and, more importantly, good manners. Her training is fun, in-depth, and results oriented. Her training does NOT include reprimands, time outs, etc. We only focus on positive which is so important if you want your dog/puppy to really bond with you. I highly recommend Steffi. No one better."

Dara has come so far in just two weeks! We are also learning to walk loose leash. It's so helpful how you break it down into little chunks and appreciate your mindful approach too. Excuse all the messages - my mind is so blown by what Dara is capable of and how it actually wasn't so hard!

Went for our first walk and it was a lot better than expected! So much nicer than my arm being ripped off for the entire walk and I’m sure it’ll even keep getting more and more fun. Thank you!
