Reactive Dog Class

Reactive dogs are dogs that bark, lunge or growl at a stimulus without the intent to harm. It you have a reactive dog it can be hard to walk outside, take them into public, or take these dogs to a group training class. Reactive dogs are not necessarily aggressive frequently these dogs will react because they are fearful, anxious or frustrated. In this class we desensitize the dogs to triggers, while teaching replacement behaviors. This class will have two instructors and the class limit is three dogs.

In this class we will learn:
• Desensitizing the dog to triggers
• How to read your dog
• Prevention and management
• Hoe to keep your dog below threshold

Replacement behaviors:
• Targets
• Mat Training
• Sit, down, stand, spin, roll over, bow, stay, come, interrupt, leave it.
