    Are you struggling with a nervous, fearful, or anxious dog and searching for a program that's ACTUALLY proven to work?

    If you're on this page right now, it means you want results. You're hungry for way more than you are currently experiencing with your dog...and it seems like every other training program out there never seems to get you where you want to be.

    Example and Demo from Jeff on Nervous and Fearful Dogs

    You're ready to experience massive success. And deep down, you know your dog IS capable of getting past its current limitations...

    The good news is, the results you're searching for ARE possible. And we're not just blowing smoke up your ass. If you're familiar with our work, then you know we will NEVER BS you when it comes to training and the methods that are most effective. 

    If you are struggling with a dog that has ever been labeled "untrainable" "too nervous to work with" "hopeless" or anything of the like, you'll find the answers you've been looking for inside of this course. 

    Let us know if any of this sounds like you and your dog:

    -Your dog is afraid of EVERYTHING-- loud noises, cars, new people, new environments, even a leaf blowing in the wind

    -Your dog's behavior is actually effecting your quality of life and/or relationships. You can't have people over, and you can't go out for too long or too far because the dog is left at home.

    -You're beginning to feel like a failure to your dog because you don't know how to help them

    -You have gone to multiple trainers only to find their methods ineffective or have very short-term success. 

    -Even though it seems like nothing is working, you are NOT ready to give up, you're just searching for the right trainer to help you get where you want to be. 

    -You found this page because something deep down told you to click here, and give it one more shot. 

    You are looking for the missing "thing" that you haven't found...yet. 

    You see the videos on social media with people making these magical transformations with their dogs and wonder why your transformation hasn't come yet. You might even see OUR social media and wonder how we get dogs to overcome massive fear to become confident and fulfilled. 

    How DO we have so much success with tens of thousands of dogs all over the world?

    The answer: We simplify everything. 

    We demystified dog training, we make it easy to understand, and most importantly, implement.

    We make our methods so easy, so fool proof, people can do it through a computer screen and still get the same results we do. 

    After 20+ years of training dogs, you figure out what works and what is just a bunch of smoke in mirrors. Dog training, even seemingly "untrainable" dogs, is actually a very simple process. 

    Let's let go of our egos, fear of the unknown, analysis paralysis, and learn a much better way...

    Most of what you've been taught about rehabbing nervous dogs is WRONG.

    It's ineffective, counter-productive, and quite simply, its just NOT working...

    It's leaving you confused, disappointed and overwhelmed with very little to show for all the hours you've invested into training your dog. 

    How do we know this?

    We work with thousands of clients around the world just like you. With the same struggles, the same feelings, and the same concerns about their dogs. 

    So, what do you get when you join this program?

    With this course, you'll get our exact formula for rehabbing nervous, fearful dogs. We show you step by step from intake to go-home how the process looks, nothing held back. This will be a fully transparent course (just like all of them) so that YOU can learn how to make progress with a very challenging dog. Like we always say, we'd rather work with AGGRESSION than fear!! And we don't say that lightly. Fear can be one of the most difficult things to help a dog overcome...but we do it every day, and we want to show you EXACTLY how we do it. In this course, whether you are a trainer or an owner who's struggling, you will find the roadmap to success that you are likely missing in your training program. 

    If you own a fearful dog, or simply just want to learn more about dog behavior and the many ways to rehab a dog, then this course is for you!

    We also recommend taking the Green to Graduate course as the perfect supplement to this program. Rehabbing a Fearful Dog focuses more on behavior modification, while Green to Graduate is our key course for both on and off leash obedience. We always recommend putting a strong foundation of obedience on your dog regardless of what you are struggling with, as it will make everything that much easier for you and your dog!

    I know your struggle because I have been there myself, too.

    Whether you just got a dog and have no idea where to start, or you've been struggling for a while, you might have some common problems going on within the household. Does your dog pee everywhere, chew on everything, bolt through doors, not listen to anything you say? Do you even feel like there's no hope in sight?

    It doesn't have to be that way...

    Imagine if you could fully train your dog and FINALLY find a way to communicate in a way you both understand. Imagine not being frustrated and actually looking forward to all the places you can go together. Imagine not ever having to leave your dog out of important life events ever again. This Green to Graduate course will walk you through the journey of dog ownership step by step, and you'll be able to bring out the best in you AND your dog in four weeks or less!

    If you're ready to start enjoying your dog and all the freedom training has to offer, then look no further. This course is for you!

    Meet Your Instructor

    Hi, my name is Jeff Gellman, owner of Solid K9 Training. I've been training dogs for over twenty years, and I also hold dog training seminars around the world. Throughout my career, I have worked with tens of thousands of dogs and humans, and I know firsthand how lack of training can affect the quality of life for both ends of the leash. Between my free social media content, virtual one-on-one work, seminars, and in-person training, I have kept countless dogs in their homes who were on their last chance. 

    I have always wanted to find a way to help EVEN more families and their dogs. There is such a need for dog training that works, and so I created this course. My Green to Graduate series addresses one of the most common pain points I see people struggling with- lack of training overall! So many folks are struggling to get their dogs to do the basics, so I wanted to create a course that truly covers it all. 

    Jeff Gellman

    This simple and easy-to-follow video series will get you on the path to better walks, better obedience, and a better lifestyle with your pet for the long run. You'll finally be able to live life with your dog exactly as you imagined, and the best part is, you'll be there in 4 weeks or less.
