Reactive Dog Training

Reactive Dog Group Class

Prerequisites: None

6 weeks meeting once a week.

A dog that responds inappropriately or overreacts to a dog, person, or object is generally considered a reactive dog. Reactions can range from lunging, barking, and growling, to difficult to manage overenthusiasm.

Reactivity is not created overnight and it definitely will not be solved overnight. This can be a long process. But we’ll be there for you as you learn how to give your dog the tools he needs to navigate life.

This is a group class of 4 dogs max. You will each have your own space, where you will not be able to see other dogs but hear them. We will start with critical foundational skills building on those each week. We will gradually introduce the sight of another dog in various contexts if the dogs are ready.

This class is best suited for dogs that are leash reactive towards dogs but are not human-aggressive.

*Dogs that are reactive towards people may be better served in private sessions.

*Dogs that have more serious aggression issues should start in private training.
