Holistic Dog Training in Seattle, WA

Our Process

Our work will begin with a two-and-a-half-hour initial session. Beyond the initial session, Sensitive Dog offers single sessions, and phone consultation/coaching. In-depth, customized intensive programs are offered on a case-by-case basis.

Our holistic approach to working with dogs and their humans can illuminate and stabilize some of the most challenging and puzzling manifestations of behavior. Examples of focus areas might include, but are not limited to: puppy foundational life skills, mental stimulation, senior dog mental/emotional wellness, communication responsiveness, loose leash walking, jumping up, behavior around guests, boundary issues, separation anxiety, reactivity, displays of aggression, environmental adjustment/adaptation, problem chewing, stealing things, demanding attention, excessive barking, and leadership and family dynamics.

While we are most known for our work with complex behavior cases, your reason for seeking our guidance does not have to be rooted in difficulty. We are passionate about working with dogs of all ages, from puppyhood to old dogs, to enhance your quality of life together through connection, conscious awareness, and understanding.  Learning from our dogs does not always have to be initiated through struggle.


A Private Clinic for You and Your Dog

A comprehensive and personalized learning experience for you and your dog of any age.

There is so much conflicting information out there about working with dogs. Year after year, we hear people say that they are clear they don’t have the tools and information they need, and are afraid to do anything that would negatively impact their dog. We intend to relieve this confusion for you.

People come to us with all sorts of goals… and dogs! Whether you have a new puppy, adult dog, or senior dog, our intention is to empower you with knowledge and tools for understanding your dog in a way that will serve you and your dog for life. You will leave with a deeper connection and understanding of your dog, and feel clear about what your dog needs from you, to be the best version of themselves that they can be.

The initial session is a private, two-and-a-half-hour deep dive, at Sensitive Dog, tailored to you and your dog. The content of your initial session is determined by your priorities and the current capacity of you and your dog, in relation to your goals. You will fill out a detailed questionnaire before our appointment, so that we can make the best use of the time we have together.
