About this Class:
The goal of this class is to develop the tools to walk your dog on leash without his barking or lunging at other dogs. You will learn the skills needed to help your dog’s comfort level around other dogs and to reduce your own anxiety when out on walks. At the same time, your dog will learn to focus less on other dogs, and more on you. Each handler/dog team has an individual coach during class, but you must do homework with your dog between classes.
The Reactive Dog Class is not for dogs who have snapped at or bitten a human or for dogs with a history of causing serious injury to other dogs.

Reactive Dog Class is filled from our Wait List. The class is offered on Wednesdays from 8:10 – 9:40 pm. If this time will work for you, join the wait list below.
If Wednesday evenings do not work for you, contact us and we can recommend another class or a private trainer in your area.
Under “behavior issues”, you will find handouts on dog-reactive dogs and reactive dogs living in apartments/condos. The ideas in these handouts can help you while waiting for class.
