CHALLENGING DOG: FOUNDATIONS

NO DOGS WORKSHOP * 90 MIN * $50

 We know that you are worried about the idea of a group class for dogs that are not polite when they see other dogs or people.  Our first meeting will be without dogs, so we can discuss the foundations for training, and work on some handling skills before you get to work with your dog.  This group session is also an opportunity to meet other people working through similar issues, and benefit from hearing answers to everyone’s questions.

From here you can:

  • Sign up for the over reactive to dogs group class
  • Sign up for the over reactive to people and/or dogs group class
  • Sign up for private training instead of or before you are comfortable joining a group class

CHALLENGING DOG: OVER REACTIVE TO DOGS

5 WKS * 60 MIN * $195

Over reactive behavior is frustrating and embarrassing to deal with as an owner.  If your dog is fearful, frustrated or aggressive when they see other dogs it is also often very stressful for them.  Addressing this behavior utilizes many of the tools in the trainer’s toolbox. This class will help you build the foundation behaviors you need, deal with the inappropriate/over the top emotions surrounding the triggers for the behavior, and  give you practical and hands on opportunities to teach your dog how you would like them to behave instead.  Only 4 dog and handler teams may enroll, so you get the one on one attention you need.  This class is focused on dogs with over reactive behavior towards dogs.  If your dog displays this behavior with humans, please discuss your case with our trainer to determine the best solution for your dog.

 

CHALLENGING DOG: OVER REACTIVE TO PEOPLE AND/OR DOG

5WKS * 60 MIN  *  $275

Over reactive behavior is frustrating and embarrassing, but when the behavior is directed towards people, it can be even more complicated.  Other humans are much harder to manage than other dogs most of the time, and getting humans to cooperate to help with training can be a big challenge!  Our solution is to pair up owners with dogs who need to work on these behaviors, and work on one another.  These are semi private sessions, and will be modified to meet the needs of the particular owner/dog teams.

Addressing this behavior utilizes many of the tools in the trainer’s toolbox. This class will help you build the foundation behaviors you need, deal with the inappropriate/over the top emotions surrounding the triggers for the behavior, and  give you practical and hands on opportunities to teach your dog how you would like them to behave instead.  Only 2 dog and handler teams may enroll, so you get the one on one attention you need.
