REACTIVE DOG REHAB

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED MANNERS

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED MANNERS


Cost: $300 for 4 weeks


Who: Dogs that bark and lunge at people and/or other dogs on leash.


This class is for reactive dogs that bark, lunge, snap etc. towards other dogs on leash.


  • Does your dog go crazy every time another dog appears on your walk?
  • Are you embarrassed by the hair-trigger lunging and barking?
  • Is your worst nightmare meeting up with an off-leash dog on a walk?

Reactive dog training focuses on teaching your dog to relax and get into an operant or “learning frame of mind” in the presence of other dogs (or whatever stimulus they are reacting to). We also teach your dog to look to you for cues on how they should react when other dogs are present.

​THIS IS A TWO PART WORKSHOP!   

PART ONE:  Orientation Workshop  (Hand outs and powerpoint presentation)

Join us for a 2 hour orientation workshop.  In this session we will discuss why your dog is reactive, what makes the behavior occur , and how we can use positive training techniques to change that behavior to something more desirable. We’ll discuss dog body language and stress signals, handling techniques, training equipment, and techniques that you can use with your own dogs at home.

PART TWO:

​Using the knowledge you acquired from the orientation you’ll get to put those techniques to the test with your own dog in this semi private, hands on workshop. We’ll set each dog up for success and we will coach you through the training techniques to help your dogs reactivity.   The remaining three weeks of class with dogs we will be rotating the dogs each week.  This  allows a less stressful environment for the dogs and gives owners the opportunity to observe.

Space is limited

This class is not for dog who are reactive to people.   Please contact with questions.

Don’t Stop Your Dog From Smelling!
Your dog has an amazing natural gift.  The gift of smell.  In fact, a dog primarily experiences the world through its sense of smell that is thousands of times more powerful than ours.  There is nothing more fun for your dog than time spent tracking new smells.

This popular dog sport enables you to wear your dog out mentally so it is ideal for active dogs, dogs with physical limitations or anyone who just wants to play a fun game with their dog. Dogs learn to systematically search boxes and other objects for hidden food. The level of difficultly increases each week and it is fascinating to watch the dogs catch scent and make a find.
Dogs and parents give this class a very high rating for fun!
