Reactive Dog Training

Registration Closed Next Class Begins this fall

This class is designed to help you understand how to help the reactive dog mitigate the world without setting off at every trigger they see or hear. The class will cover too many topics to list, such as; understanding and reading canine body posture to better anticipate and prevent reactions, understanding your own body language and how it communicates to your dog, the other dog and people, how to work with your own emotions instead of fighting them, realistic expectations and how to accept your journey, specific dog training techniques to build a tool chest, techniques to manage the situations when they go south to minimize fallout, all built within a community of support that will continue after the class concludes.

$75 for 6 weeks of class

Participants that have the ability to take and upload videos are able to submit homework videos for feedback and analysis from the instructor, and ask questions, both regarding their own dogs and also on fellow students submissions. Video submissions are not required, but it is the best way for us all to learn! The class will operate within a secret facebook group (so you need to be on facebook), which will be left open after the class ends for everyone to continue to support each other after the class concludes and I will provide feedback for folks catching up for an additional 6 weeks after class ends. All the class materials will be available for you to access on your own schedule and it is suggested you submit a video each week for feedback, but not required.
