Carefree adventures with your dog are within reach

Your walks are ruined by your dog’s barking and lunging. You feel embarrassed when other people see your dog going crazy and are anxious just thinking about leaving the house with your dog. You’re overwhelmed and grieving the life you thought you would have with your four-legged best friend.

From Barky to Brilliant is the perfect course for you, delivered by reactivity expert Dr Anna Muir, and tried and tested to give you the life you dream about with your dog. Start today to make dog walks the best part of your day.

6 Lessons | 2hr 45mins | Resources & support




As soon as your dog sees another dog in the distance they become alert, trying to get them to move away is impossible, then they start loudly barking, they’re jerking and pulling your arm as they lunge, and you’re desperately hoping that the other dog is on lead on not about to run up to your dog because then they may growl or bite.

With Barky to Brilliant you can instead feel confident to walk your dog, go on adventures to new locations and stop in at the pub or a cafe.

From Barky to Brilliant Includes:

Your dog will become calm, confident and free to enjoy spending time with their favourite person in the world - you! ​

“I am so pleased with the progress Luna has made. Before we started training she was incredibly reactive to both dogs and people, lunging and barking uncontrollably and I was even bitten by her myself on multiple occasions. I would absolutely dread taking her out and after most walks I would come home crying and covered in scratch marks from her jumping up at me. It was absolute hell.

It has taken time, patience and hard work but I can now take her out and walk her like a normal dog! There is still a little way to go as she does have her moments but they are few and far between and I now know how to deal with them and so does she. Luna used to absolutely hate going for a walk, she would even hide when she saw her harness but now she is all waggy tails and running to the door. We both absolutely love our walks and we get to go on so many adventures that beforehand would have been impossible. I finally have a happy, calm dog who loves to sniff and explore and it is absolutely brilliant!”

– Deanne, Luna’s owner
