Canine Fear Solutions revolutionizes the pet welfare and behavior industry by offering a richer, more humane model for dogs and their humans to move past the old-school, often inhumane and dangerous ways of thinking and acting around dogs, dog training, and dog behavior modification. Canine Fear Solutions releases the limiting knots of traditional “obedience” and “manners” approaches, freeing humans and the dogs they love from useless hindrances, and closing the care loop by offering a more complete model. Dogs can learn desired behaviors without suffering the distress so common with old-fashioned approaches, and so can dog parents.

Canine Fear Solutions is an evidence-based practice inclusive of multi-disciplinary considerations and ever-growing discoveries that improve the human-animal bond, humane dog care, and behavior treatment.  Our offerings encompass the very best practices, based on anti-aversives principles and experiences shown to deliver efficacy in interventions for fearful dogs, including anxious, traumatized, puppy-milled, hoarded, and feral dogs in captivity.


Our service isn’t just for fearful dogs though; the principles and practices we teach can be leveraged to help disadvantaged and at-risk dogs of all kinds, as well as for dogs without challenges, to best ensure they remain that way. Canine Fear Solutions is for dogs, private dog owners, foster caregivers, rescue & shelter workers, and other animal welfare and related professionals, helping them become more effective and happy together.


For dogs & dog-committed humans seeking more peace & happiness via richer, effective,  humane approaches to the concerns related to their lives and experiences together. 

Sadly, the suffering of pet dogs is not uncommon since humans and pets do not fluently share a common language. A lack of understanding is the result. Confusing behavior tends to follow. Without a dog-committed advocate, a dog may become disenfranchised and at risk.

Fear can develop in any dog at any time, and once developed will tend to get worse over time without proper care & treatment.

Even though domesticated as a species, many pet dogs struggle because they can't tell us what they need, as a species, as a breed, and as an individual dog in a particular context.

Here at CFS you'll find an expert specialist in fear and fear-based behavior to help you and your dog. We'll teach you how to best address the distressing issues you've been coping with. 


Modern best practices for the prevention and treatment of fear and fear-based behavior in canines, focusing on both current and lifelong well-being with reduced risk of loss.

As your dog's caregiver, you are the dog's only hope for access to solutions for confusion and concern. But you aren't expected to automatically know how.  That's why we're are here. We'll help you help your dog.  



Dear Dogs,

We know it's hard being you. Yes, you have your good times, but other times, it's just so hard to be a pet. You feel so good when your humans give you the things you most love, and you don't want your humans to feel sad. You know that feeling. 

Sometimes you just feel so scared, and you get confused about what's happening, and what might happen next.  You really wish you could explain how you feel to your humans, and why. You're sure they would understand if you could tell them all about it.  

You need a professional who understands what you're going through, to help your humans understand too. The good news is, we are here for you!  Things can get better, and we are here to help. We've started a revolution in fearful dog treatment, to ensure you have the very special help you need for your very special self.

Dear Dogs,

Dear Humans,

We know you're trying. Sometimes it seems like you've tried everything. We're can assure you, there's something more.  You need real help with your dog---someone who can help you understand the whole picture, so that you and your dog can learn how to feel more comfortable together.

We know you're not an animal behaviorist. We know you never went to dog behavior school, and probably don't intend to. That's okay! We did, and we are here for you. You don't need to be a "dog whisperer." You just need a humane expert in canine fear abatement and prevention.

The true game-changer for you will be learning about the real reasons for your dog's behavior. The topic is not commonly discussed, but we need to discuss it, because without a more complete understanding of a problem's basis, it may seem impossible to solve, and that's frustrating for everyone.

You might not realize it yet, but you are ready for what others haven't told you. You're ready to rely on what is more powerful than just "training." We are ready to help you embrace the more powerful, effective, and most humane interventions available to you and your dog, giving you both the chance for an entirely new lease on life together.

Let's meet soon,
Your Friends at Canine Fear Solutions

Dear Humans,

Dear Pet Industry Professionals,

We know you're tired of seeing animals and their humans suffer. We know you've been taught plenty of  training rules and mechanics, and you're good at them.  But you still find that too often, the solutions you and those who count on you really need are just beyond your reach, partial, or fleeting. We know you want to be the very best at what you do.

But you have a sense that you're missing part of the bigger picture and it's holding you back, and the dogs for whom you might be their last hope. Most of us dog pros have been misled to believe that "training" a dog to "obey" is the only thing people want. That view does a disservice to everyone---dogs, dog owners, and you. It's left too many pros hanging, too many dogs at risk, and too many pet parents broken-hearted. Become part of a true evolution in dog behavior & treatment --- new paradigm, new worldview, new life for dogs and the humans who care for them.

Let's talk,
