From Rowdy to Calm
Reframing Reactivity In-depth Course

Learn the proven strategies and skills for effectively and safely transforming your dog's reactivity without using force or intimidation.

  • Do you have a dog that lunges, snarls, growls, or barks at other dogs or people?
  • Does your dog get so excited when seeing another dog that they pull you off your feet?
  • Does your dog feel out of control and over reacts more than usual? 
  • Are you afraid your dog might accidentally hurt someone that comes into your home

You are not alone, reactivity affects 1 in every 3 dogs.

During this program you will learn ways  to better understand and communicate with your dog to empower them to make better decisions under stress. 

Your dog's Reactivity is not a voluntary behavior. Learn to teach your dog alternate behaviors when presented with the things that overwhelm them, build focus and attention to you, and reinforce calm behaviors.

Knowing the best choice for you and your dog in any given situation is the pathway to infinite success!

You and your dog will learn how to calmly handle any situation using proven and reliable handling techniques.

You will build your own confidence as a handler, and work as a team with your dog.

 "I was referred to Canine Learning Academy from a friend. I took my Boston Terrier puppy home at 7 weeks and I reached out to  The knowledge, care, dedication, and professionalism of Yo and her team is unbelievable. This was the best decision I made for Darla's life; you will not find better than them! When Darla started as a 7.5 week puppy, she was timid, scared, and uncertain of her surroundings (as one would expect from a baby puppy).  If i could give them 6 stars, I would. You get the picture!

Adam Michael

 "First off incredible!!! Canine academy right away treated me and my wife as family. We had no idea what we were getting into when getting our dog Ludo. So we searched and searched for help everywhere. Yo and her team were a blessing to find. Yo sat down with us for an hour and went over everything. We are so incredibly grateful that Canine Academy is here for us and we are always in good hands. If you are thinking of having them train your dog please please just do it. You will have the best trained dog ever!

Jason Shelton

"I fully believe in virtual training. We started with Canine Learning Academy just before the Covid restrictions began. We continued our training virtually and my very reactive rescue has gone from a rowdy rover to a helper pup during the practice in-person class yesterday! The on-line classes explaining all the why’s and how’s were invaluable. The ability to rewatch classes and tapes were very helpful when I would forget how to do something. Leash handling, body language and so much more was addressed. And the ability of the trainers to coach via zoom, help with adjustments, and make corrective suggestions were key. Long way of saying Yo Michele Swinson-Armendariz and Julie Fryman are the best! 💚"

Pam Bridges

 "You have to be careful who you trust your dog with.  I have met other trainers that say they have impressive certifications, but it wasn't until I started working with the CLA team that there is clearly a big difference in training styles. I took the on-line classes with them I learned how fun it was for both me and my dog to train. They use reward based training, they taught me to never punish and I have seen the biggest difference with my relationship with my pups.  CLA are good trustworthy trainers that really want the best for you and your dog. Thank You Canine Learning Academy

YES! If you're willing to put in the work and be patient with your dog, then this course is right for you. Canine Learning Academy is perfect for pet parents with dogs of any age, size, or breed.

100% YES! We have found virtual training to be as effective as in-person training. You receive the exact same guidance and instruction as our in-person programs, with the primary difference being that you will be the one handling your dog for the duration of training. And that alone can be extremely helpful to build your confidence and provide fast results at home. Even some of our most complex cases of reactivity, separation anxiety, and other behavioral problems can be tackled with a high level of efficiency using virtual training. We often find that the presence of a trainer walking into your home alone, can set some dogs off. The learning because more difficult and often leads to frustration for both pet parent and their dog. It's especially important in that you, the pet parent, is empowered to take the lead on your dog's training and that you truly understand the principles behind the training. Virtual dog training will give you all of the tools you need to do just that and see the results you're looking for so that you can have the relationship with your dog you dreamed of.
