Aimee & Louis

"I highly recommend this program. When my partner and I signed up, I was almost ready to give up. I can say I wouldn't be where I am today without the skills and support I found in this program.

Not only will you gain coping skills from a qualified professional, but I think you'll find the peer support invaluable as well."

Kelli & Cosmo

"The program makes you feel understood and seen in a way that the rest of the world never does when you have a reactive dog.

You feel like you can be open about everything and people will actually know what you are trying to say... And the lessons actually expose things you didn’t even see yourself."

Lisa & Patches

"I have mentioned this program to numerous people. I tell them this is the best thing you can do for you and for your dog. 

I have become much more aware and patient with my dogs and myself. We are much more calm and take things day by day. I am more aware of MY emotions and not letting them influence my pets."

We are building an amazing community of reactive owners who understand you, and understand your dog.

Coping with Canines is led by Jess Adam, a coach for dog owners with a background in mental health.

There is nothing else like this program out there to support owners of reactive or challenging dogs!

You can change life with your reactive dog in 30 days! 

Count Me In!

Okay but... How does Jess even know this stuff?!

Even though Handlers & Humans does not provide therapy, I AM actually a licensed therapist and professor of counseling psychology by day ... and a reactive dog owner coach by, well, also day! 

But most importantly... I own and love a reactive dog too. I have been exactly where you are, and I had to figure out how to work through my own "stuff" to be the best owner I could be for Dio. 

When I started applying the same, evidence-based skills and concepts that I use every day in my work as a mental health professional, our training progress, our bond, and our life started to change! 

Listen, your dog is ready for you to do YOUR training.

If your dog could talk, this is the training they'd send YOU for

Your emotional state has a huge impact on your training success and your bond with your dog. Typical dog training teaches you how to work with your dog's issues... but not with yours. 

Coping with Canines is a one of a kind program that addresses the HUMAN side of dog training. 

You can learn the skills to change life with your dog in just 30 days!

You'll learn how to shift your mindset, cope with your feelings, and find joy with the dog you have... all informed by the evidence-based, real life practices from Jess's mental health background.
