The root of your dog’s reactivity can come from any number of causes such as leash frustration, over-excitement, aggression or even fear. For example, your dog may “just want to say hi” but his barking and otherwise inappropriate behaviour puts you and others on-edge. Participants will learn how dogs communicate through body language and examine their relationships with their dogs. Focus on how to teach and reward appropriate or alternative behaviours in their dogs to diminish his reactivity. Designed primarily for dog-to-dog reactivity, but the same techniques can be used with other reactivity issues (i.e., strangers, kids, skateboards, etc.) 

*The small class size (maximum of 4 dogs) provides encouragement, support and a positive learning environment. We have a large indoor space right on the edge of a huge outdoor green space for flexibility depending on your dogs learning needs (and unpredictable Calgary weather!. 
This course is for dogs over six months of age with known reactivity (e.g., raised hackles, increased arousal, barking, lunging, or growling, etc.).
