The Transformation is Real.

This is all possible within a couple of days

When it comes to dog ownership, everyone wants the same thing: People want their dogs to be involved in their life, they want the ability to have fun with them, and they want them to integrate into their lifestyle as seamlessly and peacefully as possible. For most dogs, this is a fairly straightforward thing to do. Bring the dog home, spend time with them, get some baseline training done, and start forming a bond. 


…until it’s not. 

What happens when a dog doesn’t quite fit the mold? Or when a dog already knows their obedience, but is still struggling mentally with crippling fear, reactivity to strangers, and the inability to calm down? Behavioral issues are not the same as a dog not understanding how to “down” when told. Extreme behaviors cause dog owners to make hard decisions, lose sleep, and ultimately sacrifice their quality of life.


And that is not what anybody signed up for when bringing home a dog!

The world will tell you:

“love them more.” 
“Avoid their triggers.”
“Don’t ever push the dog past threshold.”
“Accept them for who they are.”

Yet, millions of dog owners are already following this advice and living with frustration and desperation…because their dogs continue to struggle.

What if the solution was actually the complete opposite of what’s being taught out there?
And dogs could transform from fearful to FREE by being shown how capable they actually are?

The Fear to Freedom course reveals how much is possible for dog owners and their dogs, when they step outside of the “norm” and start training for the lifestyle they ultimately want.

This course will BUST through the training myths that are keeping so many dogs paralyzed with fear and reactivity. This is a virtual training event like no other, because Fear to Freedom will be showing our proven methods for rehabbing even the most fearful dogs…LIVE and unedited. 


As a dog owner, you are by default, a dog trainer.  

And you will walk away from this training feeling empowered, confident, and ready to help your dog succeed. 

✅ Even if your dog has never been able to go in public before.

✅ Even if you have stopped having guests come to the house.

✅ Even if you feel totally hopeless, and nothing has worked up until this point.

The Fear to Freedom course is unlike anything you’ve ever tried before, because there’s nothing else out there like it. 

We will be spending 4 weeks together, in live and recorded virtual  training sessions, showing the step-by-step rehab process of our board and train dog, Shelby. 

Shelby struggles with extreme fear, barking/growling/lunging at humans, and is always on edge. Her owner can’t bring her anywhere because she can’t hold command when she works herself up. She missed some key socialization in her early life, and their world together is growing smaller by the day. 

We are Shelby’s last chance at living a fulfilled life in her current home, and we’re documenting the entire rehab process.

Imagine Yourself a Month From Now

You’ve completed the Fear to Freedom training. You look at your dog, who’s now confident and content, lying by your side at the coffee shop while you catch up with friends.

You see the peace in your dog’s eyes, and feel the calm between their breaths. You wonder how on earth you ever got by before training? But you don’t stay with that thought too long.

Because now you’re here, enjoying every minute of what you imagined dog ownership to be.

No longer barking and causing a scene due to their underlying insecurity. 

You’re both at ease. Your dog is FINALLY comfortable in their own skin. You’re both so grateful you did the work. 

Your world is huge, and you have your weekends planned out for the next six months (your dog included)

Everyone asks, “what changed?! How did you do it?” 
You smile proudly and say “I trained them myself!”

FAQs – You have questions, we have answers:

We know the dog industry has likely made you feel like your fearful dog is a lost cause. But we have worked with thousands of truly fearful dogs, and every single one has benefited from training. Do some dogs have a ceiling? Absolutely. But you don’t know until you see how far they can go. Even SOME training is better than none at all. It’s never too late, or “too far gone.”

No worries. We will show you how to condition your dog to the tools. You likely will need them for leverage, and to work your dog through their current stress threshold. Tools are great communication systems, especially when fearful dogs typically don’t take food or care about toys.

You might feel like you’ve tried everything, but we promise, you have not gone through a program like ours before. We do things differently here (you’ve heard that before, too, most likely.) But we wouldn’t call something proven that has worked once, for one dog. Our training has helped thousands of dogs around the world. It’s easy to follow, implement, and it actually yields results. We create courses and trainings for YOU in mind. We want you to win more than anything. We put a guarantee on our programs for a reason. If you feel it’s not the right fit, no worries. Just contact us and we’ll get you into another program, or refund you. *terms and conditions apply

yes! But we’ll show you how. All leash work will be shown inside this course. PLUS you’ll have a chance to snag our signature Green to Graduate 2 course for an insane price (all your e- collar and baseline training can be found in there, too.)
