The Right Approach Can Change Everything
Well-behaved pets live with well-informed owners. Get off to the right start by learning how to encourage your dog’s best behaviors.
Unless your pet has a behavior problem that needs special attention, most puppies and dogs do well in a group class. However, many pet parents’ busy schedules can not accommodate a rigid class schedule and prefer private sessions customized to the needs and their pet’s needs. Our private and semi-private classes are designed to address the specific goals and objectives of the client, so dogs and owners get the best of both worlds — special attention from the instructors along with experience being with other dogs in semi-private sessions.

Reactive Dog Workshop
(Level 1: Intro to working with your reactive dog)
Private and semi-private (max 3 dogs) classes offered
Does your dog bark, lunge, become overly stimulated, reactive, or aggressive in the presence of other animals, strangers, and environmental stimuli such as bikes, skateboards, motorcycles, flags, etc.? Are you afraid to take your dog for a walk around the block because you may meet another dog? Are you embarrassed to tell people that your dog is not friendly when they ask to pet your dog? Do you feel like a failure as a pet parent because your sweet dog sometimes acts like Cujo? Then Level 1: Introduction to working with your Reactive Dog is the class for you!
Level 1 Reactive Dog Workshop is designed to give pet parents an understanding of the reasons why their dogs act the way they do and to help build handler confidence by teaching useful management strategies, in addition to basic tools to train, control and relax your dog.
