The Number One Problem dog owners seek my professional advice for, is what to do about their dog’s aggression towards other dogs. So, because of the high demand, and because I can’t physically get to everyone who wants help with this, I’ve put together this foundational online course.
My main aim with this course is to help you help your anti-social dog learn lifetime skills in a proactive (non-aggressive) manner.
5 Questions to Determine if this Course is for You
1. Do you avoid seeing other dogs, and change direction if you see one coming toward you?
2. Do you choose to walk late at night, or not as often as you should, or worse not at all, so you don’t have to deal with your dog’s bad behaviour?
3. Does your dog’s lunging and carry-on leave you feeling embarrassed, and do other dog owners give you funny and dirty looks?
4. Do you feel overwhelmed with your dog’s unruly behaviour when other dogs are present, and feel that it’s having a major impact in your relationship with your dog?
5. Do you feel guilty that you don’t exercise your dog enough and that it spends most of its days in the back yard?
Well, now, you no longer have to put up with your dog’s bad manners. There are ways to help you enjoy walking your dog and helping your dog cope better when it sees other dogs.
In this 6 Module Course you’ll learn to read your dog’s subtle communication signs so you’ll stay a step ahead, sometimes even two steps ahead! By accurately interpreting your dog’s behaviour you will be able to intervene much earlier should your dog be thinking of reacting.
With these skills you’ll have more enjoyable outings and will look forward to safely getting your dog out in public rather than avoiding walking your dog.

7 Point Summary of Why You Should Invest in Kathy’s Reactive Rover® Online Program
1. Understanding Your Dog Better
This information enables you to get into your 'reactive' dog’s head and understand it on a different level. This helps you break through the language barrier, and is the next best thing to reading your dog’s mind.
2. It’s Simple
It’s a simple, uncomplicated process, quick to learn and easy to implement. The instructions make helping your dog a lot more enjoyable and all the theory part is done at your own pace in the comfort of your own home.
3. Better Dog Behaviour
The strategies give you an insight into dog behaviour as you learn how to read your dog’s body language just like the experts do. In fact, after completing this course you’ll be a savvier dog owner and be a more skilful 'action taker'.
4. How to Read Your Dog
You’ll learn how to read your dog so well that if your dog could talk to you, they’ll be thanking you for caring enough to learn how to ‘speak dog’. You’ll begin to take more notice of your dog because you'll understand they’re communicating and so you'll need to stop, look and listen to them – this information is really that important. Your dog will be grateful for making their life more enriching without added stress.
5. Control Your Dog
You will learn the early ‘subtle’ signs that tell when your dog is about to ‘lose it’. And I’m not talking about the obvious signs like growling, barking and snapping. You’ll also see how to immediately recognise the signs that represent when your dog is stressed or anxious. You’ll become so good at recognising even the subtle signs, that before a growl occurs, you’ll be able to reduce (and potentially eliminate) your dog’s bad behaviour and curb their aggression.
6. Become More Confident
Just like us, dogs need to feel secure to be truly happy. This means they need to feel confident you will be the leader and that they can count on you to take control of matters. This is especially true for reactive dogs. You can feel content in knowing that the methods described in this Behaviour Modification Program are free of harm. Rather than inhibiting your dog’s learning through fear-based methods and scare tactics, you learn to apply ethical, dog friendly, training principles that work at changing your dog’s emotional response when in view of other dogs.
7. Expert Knowledge
"I live and breathe these strategies every day with dog owners who feel frustrated and confused with the array of techniques available to them, embarrassed by their dog’s behaviour, judged by other dog owners, and ultimately at their wits end with what to do. With dog aggression being the biggest dilemma, my focus continues to be on educating dog owners on living life on a more relaxed level, and offering them guidance and lifting their spirits."
- Kathy Kopellis McLeod
You’ll feel better about taking your dog safely out in public, and won’t have to walk late at night to avoid other dogs, or even worse not walking your dog at all.
The main aim of the course is to increase your level of confidence and control, as well as modify canine behaviour so your dog is safe and civilized around other dogs. By observing even small improvements in your dog's behaviours you will find yourself more motivated to keep working with your dog rather than giving up on it.
I guarantee that the information I provide in my online training is derived from my years of experience and I adhere to the highest quality possible! If, after completing the course and actively practicing the techniques with your dog, you are not convinced you received great value for money, I will happily refund your money.
NOTE: It is important to have realistic expectations. No one can 100% guarantee that all dogs will be successfully treated by any program, including this one. But the behaviour of many dogs will improve if you follow the guidelines within this program. Just keep in mind that every dog is different and has a different potential for successful treatment.
