This 8 week course gives owners and dogs the tools to deal with things in the environment that cause reactivity. Numbers are strictly limited to 4 dogs per course, and it is a course where homework is vital to success. You will learn to look for potential triggers before your dog notices them, so you are in a position to help your dog deal with the situation. We include some focus games, some impulse-control games, and how to help your dog notice a trigger and then look to you, rather than react to the trigger with barking, lunging etc. The first three weeks of the course are for owners only (i.e. no dogs), so your are able to do some groundwork with your dogs before they come to class. A questionnaire must be completed before registration is confirmed, to make sure you and your dog are suitable for the class.
