Your End Of The Lead Class: A Very Special Offer for DINOS!

Put down your kale chips. Remove your cat from your keyboard. I’ve got some news:

Your End of the Lead is being offered, for the first time ever, as an on-demand online class. And to celebrate, I’ve partnered up with the founder, Janet Finlay, to offer you some really sweet deals.

This unique online course will change how you think about yourself and your reactive dog. 




First things first.

What is Your End of the Lead?

This is not a training class. Your End of the Lead was designed to complement the training you’ve done or are already doing with your dog. Created and taught by professional dog trainer, coach, and Tellington Touch practitioner Janet Finlay of Canine Confidence in Wales, this is for YOU. The lessons are there to help you become a more aware, calmer, confident, and effective handler.

I’m really excited to share this class with you guys.


For a long time, I’ve wanted to offer Team DINOS (that’s you!) something more than what’s on my website and social media, like: an online forum, classes, support groups, a junior prom, and at least one national holiday.

But I know my limitations. I’ve never felt comfortable creating and offering those particular kind of resources. Still, I knew there was a gap and I really wanted to fill it because many of you need more support. I wanted so badly to offer it to you!

So imagine how stinking happy I was when Janet started offering her online class Your End of the Lead last year and I began hearing from her students that they loved it. Janet let me audit the course a few months ago and in all 15 lessons, you could hear me shouting at my computer “Amen!!” and “I meant to write about that for DINOS!” and “Oohh, that’s a great idea!”

I immediately started putting some of her suggestions to use, particularly her calming practices. And not just when I’m dog walking. It’s good stuff for all the time.

This looks nothing like me and my dogs, but HIGH FIVE y’all!


Your End of the Lead covers, in depth, a lot of what I just touch on over at DINOS, along with other stuff we never really get into – thanks to Janet’s TTouch and dog training expertise. So if you find DINOS helpful, I think you’ll really dig YEL.

YEL covers everything from understanding your dog’s triggers and thresholds to dealing with other dog owners out in public to learning TTouch wraps and breathing exercises to help you relax. Each lesson is overflowing with information, thought provoking prompts, and exercises for you to try.

Janet is really talented. She put all of this together in such a professional, yet compassionate way.

That’s why I’m promoting the class as an affiliate partner. I feel a deep sense of responsibility to all of you, so I don’t take promotions or sharing other people’s work lightly. I hope you know how much I want things to be better for you and your dogs. I think this class can help many of you.

If you’re stressed out by your dog’s reactive behavior, this course is designed for you.


Ready to sign up right now? Don’t let me stop you! Hop on over to the DINOS affiliate page to learn more about the class and register now.


Living with a reactive or fearful dog can be really hard and isolating. Maybe you’ve gone to dog training classes already, but found there really isn’t anything out there that directly supports you. Now there is! Your End of the Lead is really special in that it addresses your needs. And you can take the class on your schedule, at home, no matter where you live.


Using techniques from Tellington TTouch, coaching, and positive-based dog training techniques the class will:

Increase your awareness of yourself and your dog

Teach you how to be calm under pressure

Show you how to handle your dog with kindness and confidence

Not sure if you should take the class? Go on over to this page and watch Janet’s special video just for Team DINOS to hear more from her about why this class rocks and how the lessons are formatted.  You can also access a free sample lesson on TTouch.

Who is this class for?

This class is for you if any of the following apply:

You live with a dog that is reactive, fearful, anxious, or aggressive.

You want to learn relaxation techniques that you can apply to yourself and/or your dogs.

You’re interested in learning and incorporating TTouch techniques.

You work with reactive dogs, especially those of us that walk them.

You’re interested in becoming a better observer – of our dogs, our environment, and ourselves.

You work with owners of reactive, fearful, aggressive, or anxious dogs and you want to learn new skills to help dog owners stay calm while working with their dogs.


I think most folks would benefit from the class. Even if you’re already an experienced dog trainer or have owned reactive dogs for years, I bet there’s more than a few week’s worth of lessons that will be fresh material for you. Like Lesson Five on Limiting Beliefs or Lesson Ten on Practicing Calm. This is not your average class about living with dogs.

But it’s not for everyone. You’ll only get out of it as much as you put into it. There are no magic potions or quick fixes offered in this class. You have to dedicate time to each lesson. You still have to do dog training and management. You have to be interested in exploring your relationship with your dog.


Ahh, I feel better already!

Ahh, I feel better already!

  4. Hello, My name is Kathy Cascade, a Tellington TTouch Instructor. I am happy to endorse this course, as I have worked with Janet. I also offer an online course, called S.A.N.E. Solutions for Challenging Dog Behavior as another resource for DINOs. I think this type of approach is so important for these dogs and their people!

    April 16, 2014
    • Hi Kathy, Thanks so much for sharing your course here. I didn’t realize you had an on-demand course as well! I’m a big fan of your work (I originally found you through your wonderful work with Alf). I’ll add your class to the DINOS website, so it’s there as a resource as well.

      Do you ever do workshops in New England? We’d love to have you out here!

      And for anyone that’s interested, here is Kathy’s course link:

      April 16, 2014
      • Appreciate it, Jessica! I hope to get to your area and am working on it.

        April 16, 2014
        • Thanks Kathy. YEL includes links to several of your articles as further reading as well as a link to your online course in follow on opportunities as I think these complement each other really well.

    April 16, 2014
    • Those lessons are jam packed, right? I still go through them and pick out new links/videos to explore. It’s a great resource. Hope you enjoy the class!

      April 16, 2014
  6. Thanks for this opportunity! I’m a total amateur, but this sounded like exactly what my dog and I need right now (and I was one of the first 10…lucky us)!

    April 16, 2014
    • Oh, that’s great! It doesn’t matter how much experience you have or don’t have – the lessons meet you where you are on the journey (and Janet is a wonderful resource). Congrats!

  8. Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! I am so excited about this!

    April 17, 2014
    • Wahooooooooooo! There’s an entire section about how to deal with loose dogs while your semi-incontinent dog, wearing a Velcro suit, skateboards by them to safety. On second thought, maybe that was a different class…

      April 17, 2014
  9. This is so awesome, on all all fronts. Way to go and congratulations! Can we at least discuss a junior prom though? 😉

    April 17, 2014
    • Thanks! And please consider this your official invitation to join the Decorating and Refreshment Committee of the DINOS Junior Prom. May I suggest spiking the punch with sedatives and decorating with privacy screens? Because when Team DINOS hits the gymnasium together, it’s gonna get real funky!

    This would have been perfect, especially with things spiraling out even more – ah, life! – but being unemployed makes it a no go 😐

    Thank you for this, Jessica! When you wrote some time ago you would be pursuing other projects I never would have fathomed something like this. You are a gift!

    My pit mix, Molly, has been recovering from pancreatitis and has been so weak, we have not been able to follow the garbage truck up and down the street (one of the fun activities we do before other dogs wake up). We were outside doing our business a couple of days ago when a small, white, yapping dog, approached. My sick Molly garnered all of her strength to lunge and bark like, well, like a pit bull. Weak as she was. What a champ. Funny thing is, as we cannot use treats and she is so lethargic, all I could think was to get down on my knees (in my work clothes not less), squeeze her and offer calming words. Clearly, YEL is here at the right time. Thank you so very much.

    All the very best to you,
    Lynn (the mom) and Molly (the pit)

    April 22, 2014
    • Lynn, I’m so sorry to hear that you and Molly have been going through this and I hope that her recovery is a speedy one. Wishing you both well!
