Walk & Train for Bold or Fearful Dogs

Serving Boulder, Louisville, and Lafayette, Colorado

This is more than a dog walk: it's mental enrichment and physical exercise for your dog with a rewards-based handler with nearly a decade of training experience. While we walk, I help your dog learn alternatives to unwanted behaviors like leash pulling, bunny and squirrel chasing, and reactivity.

Hi there! I’m Libby, and I know first hand how hard it can be to have a high energy, distractable, and impulsive dog. See that sweet little heeler? That’s my girl Daisy, and she is a handful. Two whole handfuls, actually. While her bold spirit is a part of her that I never want to correct, together we have learned better ways for her to navigate our human world.

Finding a dog walker you trust with your bold, fearful, or reactive dog can be a challenge. I’m here to help.

Rewards Based

I use positive reinforcement to teach your dog what we want them to do—not punish what we don’t want them to do—using what they naturally find reinforcing, like food or sniffing.

No Fear, No Pain

I never use shock, prong, or choke collars, leash corrections, intimidation, or other harsh methods. In fact, if you need a high-quality harness, I can help you select and source one for your dog.

Consistency is Key

I give detailed updates, including video, on what your dog and I are working on during our walks so you can implement the same techniques on your own. If you already work with a rewards-based trainer, I will communicate with them to learn the training plan.
