TRAINING OPTIONS

Join the Life!

While each of our training programs do start from the beginning and show you and your dog how to achieve your goals, it doesn't end at graduation. We want to accomplish and create new goals through continued training by applying socialization, group sessions, new environments and distractions. 

Each of our program options is a stepping stone into the ReviveK9 life, to ReviveK9 Dog Training Social Club. Each month we hold group sessions doing different types of events, (pack walks, off leash play, social hours, etc.) This way owners and dogs have the opportunity to continue putting their new found life into action, they are able to reinforce training and get to a place in training they never dreamed of!

PENSACOLA BEHAVIOR PROGRAM - RESULTS BASED AND RK9 PERKS

Welcome to ReviveK9's Behavior Program, a specialized training initiative designed to address challenging canine behaviors and foster positive transformations. Our program is structured in two comprehensive phases, each meticulously crafted to meet the unique needs of dogs exhibiting severe behavior issues.

Phase 1: Foundational Rehabilitation

In Phase 1, we focus on establishing a solid foundation through targeted exercises and behavior modification techniques. Key components include obedience commands such as sit, down, place (with send away), heel, and recall, with an emphasis on duration and distance. Check-ins, muzzle acclimation, and play therapy/drive expression are integrated to promote positive interactions. Ecollar acclimation and exposure to mild distractions, including Bayview, neighborhoods, and in-home settings, are incorporated to build resilience.

The program unfolds over seven weeks, gradually progressing through a structured curriculum:

  • Week 1: Check-ins, eye contact games, and an introduction to hand feeding.

  • Week 2: Place duration and mild distance exercises.

  • Week 3: Continued place training, check-ins, and reinforcement of the down command.

  • Week 4: Ongoing reinforcement of the down command and introduction to loose leash pattern walks.

  • Week 5: Shaping the heel command, continued work on sit, down, and place, and an introduction to place send away.

  • Week 6: Advanced heel training, place send away reinforcement, and continued muzzle acclimation.

  • Week 7: Continuation of obedience training with a focus on refining learned commands.


Phase 2: Advanced Rehabilitation and Real-World Application

Phase 2 addresses real-world scenarios and advanced behaviors, including door routines, greetings, handler generalization, and exposure to high distractions in downtown areas, stores, breweries, and with guests in the home. Group classes, vetting practice (if needed), social sessions, and resource guarding routines are incorporated as required.

Our program's flexible structure allows for customization based on the unique case, ensuring that each dog's rehabilitation journey is tailored to its specific challenges and needs. We are committed to providing effective solutions and empowering both dogs and their owners to overcome severe behavior issues, fostering a positive and lasting transformation in their relationship.

Catey Cuesta

Pensacola Lead Trainer

Reactivity and Aggression Specialist

Catey Cuesta's illustrious journey in the world of animal care began in Memphis, TN, where her early passion for all creatures led her family to foster for the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County during her high school years. Transitioning from fostering to a professional role as a kennel tech, Cuesta faced firsthand the behavioral challenges that dogs encountered at the shelter, focusing on injured and abused animals. Unfazed by the difficulties, she took the initiative to establish a comprehensive training program, tailored to address each dog's specific needs, resulting in the resolution of numerous behavioral issues before these dogs found their forever homes.


Growing up with a Catahoula Shepherd mix named Ty, Catey learned the art of training alongside her father, establishing a strong foundation in understanding canine behavior. Later, she continued her dedication to animal welfare by fostering and working at the Humane Society of Memphis, where her focus remained on rehabilitating injured and abused animals.


Relocating to Oxford, MS, Cuesta pursued a degree in Psychology while managing roles at a local animal hospital, eventually ascending to the position of Resort Coordinator. Here, she showcased her expertise in fostering positive interactions among diverse canine personalities, overseeing a facility that accommodated non-dog-friendly dogs in its daycare.

A pivotal moment in Catey's life occurred when she faced personal challenges, leading her to prioritize her mental health and resilience. This transformative experience fueled her commitment to making a positive impact on the world.

After graduating from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor's in Applied Science of Psychology in 2020, Cuesta continued her dedication to animal welfare by working at the local animal shelter. Her advocacy for justice within the organization led to positive changes, including the closure of the shelter, creating space for reform.

Catey's profound connection with dogs continued with the addition of Zami, a dog she obtained at the age of 18. Zami became an integral part of her life, symbolizing resilience, companionship, and joy through various milestones. Catey's love for Zami further fueled her commitment to enhancing the lives of shelter dogs.

Her passion for dog training and welfare led Cuesta to Pensacola, FL, where she collaborated with Dog's Playing for Life, receiving formal training in rehabilitating dogs with severe behavioral issues. Eager to contribute to the community, Catey joined ReviveK9, where her dedication and expertise have not only saved numerous canine lives but also played a crucial role in shaping training programs for dogs and new trainers alike.

As an invaluable member of the ReviveK9 team, Catey's commitment equips dog owners with the tools necessary for a joyful life alongside their canine companions. Thrilled to have her as an integral part of the team, ReviveK9 recognizes Catey Cuesta as a professional canine advocate and accomplished dog trainer, contributing significantly to the welfare of dogs and their owners.
