Nice to meet you! My name is Alix, and I am the creator behind Fetch for Me, Human. The wrinkly dog you see plastered everywhere is Buster, my reactive Pug/English Bulldog mix.
Our journey started together in May 2012 when I adopted buster from the local animal shelter as a tiny puppy.
Buster’s start to life was pretty perfect, and he was a very easy puppy. When he was around a year old, he was bitten by another dog, which caused him to become extremely reactive to pretty much everything – dogs, people, children, bicyclists, etc.
We started life together going on adventures every moment we could, so I didn’t want his reactivity to stop that. Instead, we started working on training. Today, even though Buster is still reactive, we live an incredibly active lifestyle. If I go somewhere, Buster goes with me. We travel and hike every chance we get. Utilizing positive reinforcement training methods, Buster’s reactivity has gotten so much better, and he is usually the quietest dog on the trail!
I created Fetch for Me, Human to help dog owners of reactive dogs live active lives with their dogs, too. I promise you that you can get outside with your reactive dog and have fun without creating a ruckus!
Owning a reactive dog can be a challenge, so I want to be there for you every step of the way to support you! I provide all sorts of resources ranging from how to change your mindset, training tips, training videos, and more.
I hope you get outside soon and start living an active life with your reactive dog!
