Do you have a dog that exhibits on-leash reactivity, such as barking and lunging, when he or she sees other dogs? Does your dog become stressed, uncomfortable, or over-aroused in the presence of other dogs, and do you have a hard time keeping your dog calm and focused when other dogs are around? This may be the class for you!
In this 5-week class, we will help you understand your dog’s reactivity, and will give you methods for managing and modifying it. Our goal is to help you teach your dog focus, impulse control and relaxation so that walks and outings can be more fun and less stressful for you both. Over time we can change the dog’s emotional response to his or her “triggers”.
Dogs who do NOT fit into Reactive Paws Class
•Dogs who have done major damage to another dog (such as hospitalization another dog)
•Dogs who bite their handlers when their handlers try to redirect them from focusing on another dog
For dogs who do not fit into a Reactive Paws Class, we would recommend consulting with an In-Home Trainer first.
