Learn About Dog Fear
and Dog Aggression
Fear and aggression are often the same thing. They are at most one quick flinch away from each other. When a dog reacts in fight or flight mode, this is literally the nanosecond of time when he’s making a “decision” to react with fear or aggression. It’s all just energy surging through him that needs to get released. We need to help make our dogs confident and relaxed and drain any pent-up anxiety in a healthy manner. Then they can enjoy living up to their full, happy, loving potential.
There is help to fix whatever issues you are dealing with… whether your dog is reactive to other dogs, fearful around new people, lunges at bicycles, or even if he has bitten someone. If you’re worried, just give The Pooch Coach a call to set up an evaluation and you’ll be on your way to having a happy, well balanced and stress-free dog and life again.

Don’t give up hope!
Proof that dogs can learn
to stop aggressive behavior.
“Beverly was our last hope. After trying a couple trainers in SF, we took Herbie to UC Davis, where they told us we should have him euthanized. We were heartbroken. He had tried to bite 3 people and they thought he could not be trusted. But after working with Beverly for 3 months, Herbie has turned around. He loves people now. He just had trust issues from his rough past and he needed to be carefully retrained. He’s a new, confident, happy dog! We could not be more grateful to Beverly for saving Herbie.”

“Sandy was very reactive to other dogs. I stopped walking her because I couldn’t handle her any more. But Beverly worked with us and Sandy can now walk by other dogs with no problem. Our lives are SO much better! I highly recommend the Pooch Coach!”
