Is your dog a Fearful Fido? A Nervous Nellie? No worries! We will introduce several confidence building activities in this 6-week online course to help them be more confident pups. You will enhance your bond with your dog and learn techniques to help them in their journey of becoming more confident.


Having a dog that lacks confidence is not fun for the human or dog part of the team. There are so many things we can do to help our dogs build confidence and have FUN while doing it. Whether you have a dog that competes in dog sports and just needs a confidence boost or you have a dog that is afraid to leave your house, the activities and resources available in this class will work wonders for ALL dogs lacking confidence.

In this course we will walk you through how to teach your dog some skills to help cope with the scary world around them like go to place/relax on a mat and also introduce some fun activities including scent work, dog parkour and tricks.

Using fun and engaging games, we will build your dog’s confidence and help them navigate and be more comfortable in this sometimes scary world. Using only positive reinforcement and reward-based training, we will create positive conditioned emotional responses to things they previously didn’t feel so good about! Additionally, you and your dog will have FUN learning new activities to build their confidence.

What did you enjoy about this course? "Subject matter, each lesson, & Lori’s style of instructing." Karin L. 


Probably sound like a broken record, but its easy to follow, makes me (and therefore my dog) enthusiastic, go at my own pace.

Introducing Birch Course

What did you enjoy about this course? Took me out of my comfort zone. Making me keep training logs. Teaching me to break down behaviors. That is huge because all I ever see is what I need to work on.

Now What Do I Do?! Course

I liked the pace of the course, how the material was presented and most importantly all of the wonderful feedback. I think the at-home learning experience was far better, due to the enormous amount of feedback (and encouragement!) that we would not get as much of in a live class.

Introduction to Scent Work Course

The explanation followed by the videos to show the skill or skills. That was helpful. The feedback on my videos was also helpful. The practices each week- gold!
