Reactive and aggressive behavior can be the result of fear, anxiety, or frustration. As dog behavior experts who live and work in crowded urban areas, we have considerable experience working with dogs who bark, lunge, and even bite when on-leash.

We know how frustrating it is when you can’t enjoy a peaceful stroll with your best friend. And we know how to help your dog feel safe again so you can get back to enjoying your walks, regardless of where you live.
