Learn the comprehensive, award-winning Click to Calm methodology for addressing a wide range of unwanted behavior including reactive or aggressive dog behavior.

The behaviors addressed in this course include reactive and aggressive behavior (like snarling, lunging, barking, and snapping) toward dogs, people, and generalized or specific stimuli, in a range of environments from homes to stores to parks. You’ll learn to apply this methodology both with your own dog(s) and with client cases. You'll gain access to time-saving training plans and other handouts that are ready to use with your clients as well as ongoing support after you graduate.

This course will increase your confidence in this high-demand area of behavior modification by developing your competence in the Click to Calm methodology and the associated observational, environmental arrangement, and client skills. At the end of this course, you should be able to offer clients safe and effective solutions for a range of unwanted behavior.

Important: Dog-reactivity and aggression cases vary widely in their complexity and potential for danger to instructors, clients, dogs, and others. The course will not make you an “expert" in all types of dog aggression. That knowledge is earned only with more experience than can be gained in this course alone.

    KPA Faculty Member

    REACTIVITY AND AGGRESSION • WRITING • TRAVEL

    Emma Parsons is a renowned canine reactivity and aggressive behavior specialist, teacher and trainer, dog-sports competitor, author of three popular books on aggression and reactivity, and the creator of the Click to Calm protocol for which she was awarded the Animal Welfare Advancement Award from the Animal Behavior Management Alliance (ABMA).

    Emma loves dogs, dog training, and teaching dog training. She is a Karen Pryor Academy faculty member and has been an instructor within the KPA flagship Dog Trainer Professional program since its inception, earning rave reviews from her students. Emma is also a long-standing member of the ClickerExpo faculty, delivering standing-room-only lectures and Learning Labs related to dog behavior and training. Emma is known for her empathetic but no-nonsense approach and her entertainingly delightful Boston accent!

    A mentee of Karen Pryor early in her career, Emma was driven to find solutions to aggressive behavior because of Ben, her golden retriever— both her most demanding client and her best teacher. With Karen's encouragement, Emma focused on managing and rehabilitating reactive and aggressive dog behavior and developed breakthrough marker-based positive reinforcement methods thereby helping Ben and, eventually, thousands of other dogs live rich and relaxed lives. 

    Emma has authored three popular books on reactive and aggressive dog behavior: Click to Calm: Healing the Aggressive Dog; (nominated for DWAA's training book of the year), Teaching the Reactive Dog Class: Leading the Journey from Reactivity to Reliability; and The New Click to Calm: Solutions for All Dogs in a Challenging World. For fun, Emma is a successful competitor in Obedience and Agility, earning titles at the national level with several of her dogs.

    In addition to being a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP) Emma is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (CDBC) and holds a BA degree from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. She shares her life with her husband, Greg, and their three clicker-trained competition obedience/agility dogs: Border Collie Joshua-Hunt, Golden Retriever Sprit-Rayne, and 2018 Golden Retriever Hall-of-Fame inductee and 5-time Agility Champion Austyn-Roque.
