 Reactive Rover

Dogs 6 months of age to senior citizens who are reactive/aggressive to other dogs while on leash. Six (6) week course.

Classes scheduled as needed and based on demand for class. $190/6 weeks (includes required readings, etc)

Learning to be comfortable in the presence of other dogs can be challenging for some dogs. As owners of such dogs it is imperative that we work hard to make them safe members of society. Taught by certified, experienced instructors who understand the unique requirements of dogs and handlers, this class will give both dog and handler confidence and skills to use to safely and comfortably navigate in our society.

This class is for all non-canine social dogs who are reactive and/or aggressive towards other dogs. The Reactive Rover curriculum includes exercises that will improve confidence in your handling skills, decrease your stress around dog-dog encounters, decrease your dog’s negative emotions (stress and anxiety) while improving behavior when in the presence of other dogs, all to prepare you and your dog for “real-life” close encounters of the doggy kind. This class will also teach you how to classically condition your dog to be happy when he sees other dogs and behave politely and appropriately in such situations. All class exercises are on-leash.

Length of Class
One hour per week for six (6) weeks.
** First week is a humans-only information session – no dogs allowed this week

This was a wonderful class, life changing. I was always nervous and unsure of what I was doing, now I feel confident and can pass that along.  My dog and I bonded and I feel he loves me more now and respects me at home and on walks. This is the way he and I will continue working and socializing with real world situations.  Thank you!
