Growly Reactive Dog

canstockphoto40663287.jpg

Our group class is designed to fit the needs of dogs that do well with other dogs when off-leash. The class is not designed for dogs with aggression issues towards people and dogs when on and off-leash. Such behaviors need to be addressed individually in one-on-one sessions. Behaviors such as growling, jumping and lunging at the sight of another dog is not an uncommon behavior often caused by the restriction of the leash they are hooked on to.

We focus on teaching the dog an alternative behavior and provide you with management strategies should unexpected encounters occur. We will teach you and your dog to become a successful team. We will provide barriers and a safe and controlled environment in Level 1 & 2. Level 3 is for those dogs that have successfully completed Level 1 & 2 and are ready to encounter real time environments.
