Reactive dog training that increases confidence at both ends of the lead

The Confident Connection Programme

You want to feel confident that you can make things better for your dog. You no longer want to feel like your dog is unpredictable and out of control.

You want to enjoy your dog. And you want to experience all the fun you expected to have with your dog.

Imagine if you knew exactly how to handle your dog when the inevitable meltdown occurs. More than that, what if you knew how to help your dog calm down and feel more focused on things that make them happy?

And what if you could also restore your own sense of calm so that stress and worry was no longer taking hold of you.

My personalised reactive dog training programme will give you bite-size manageable solutions to transform life for you and your dog.

  • Learn how to reset your dog after a reactive event, and discover what motivates your dog 
  • Small manageable steps to get you to your end goal so it feels achievable (Plus we’ll have plenty of mini-wins to celebrate along the way) 
  • Find out how to change your mindset so that your own emotions aren’t running riot and making things harder 
  • Get safety strategies in place, so you have solutions for tricky situations and can adapt 
  • Help your friends and family to support you AND your dog with ease

These are just some of the things you will learn in this dynamic reactive dog training programme that adapts to meet you exactly where you are right now.

There’s an emergency toolkit that will give you practical help right away. 

You’ll get instant access to the first lesson and we’ll book your first 1-2-1 session straight away, so you have personal guidance on the real life problems you’re facing right now.  

This 1-2-1 support will mean you’re no longer overwhelmed or unsure of what to focus on.  

Your 1-2-1 training sessions will help you navigate which elements of the programme are most relevant and necessary for you and your dog right now. And the rest of the content remains there for you when you need it.  

What my client’s are saying….

I recently became Mum to a 4 month old rescue dog from Romania. Una instantly bonded with me but everything else in the world seemed too much for her.

For 2 weeks I tried to get her comfortable with the world and every time we took a step forward we would then take a step back. I was getting upset and feeling like I was letting Una down.

She is a beautiful dog and all I want is for to have the best life, out on adventures with me, running, walking, going to the countryside & beach!

Not a chance.

Una wouldn’t walk outside and was upset by every small noise or person walking past the window.

Because I am on my own I want her to get along with my parents, but that was also hard for Una. She barks and shows her teeth.

Then I found Sonia, she gave me a call and instantly gave me solutions to help Una.

Even before enrolling in the course, I had tools which, helped Una relax.

The course has been invaluable and Sonia as well, who is so supportive, constantly in communication, and there to help.

The 1-2-1 sessions are amazing to get specific solutions & suggestions. The course itself is easy to follow along and logical.

Una and I have a lot of fun trying out the activities. Which not only help her confidence but strengthen our bond. Her progress is outstanding!

I honestly can’t thank Sonia enough for everything she has done to help us.

Be patient, keep your faith and all will get better I promise. With Sonia’s help, you will overcome any barriers you & your dog face.
