Reactive Dog Class-
Need help communicating with your dog “reactive dog”?
Reactive is the term coined by dog trainers and owners who own dogs that overreact to certain stimuli. It might be the sight of other dogs, people, kids, loud noises and chaos. The dog’s reaction to these stimuli is usually a bark and lunge type of behavior that scares the pants off both the person or dog being barked at and the person holding the leash.
If you own a dog like this take heart, there are many of us who share those embarrassing moments with you and through training you will see the light at the end of the tunnel.
This ongoing class is for anybody wishing to have a calmer more accepting dog when out and about.
Learn how to get your dog to focus on and follow you, rather than the things he/she finds disturbing, thus causing a bad reaction.
First time members must call Mark at[masked] to set up an evaluation PRIOR to attending the first class. This can be done 30 minutes prior to class.
Class takes place at our 10,000 sq. foot boarding and training center in Germantown MD. We walk outside and then continue in our agility/training room.
Class Cost is $30 per session paid prior to class.
Goals of the class:
Assess the severity and source of your dog’s reactivity.
Set up controlled exercises and real life scenarios
Block antisocial stimuli and signaling through the use of Leave-it, Come, Sit and Watch commands.
Most classes start with a controlled walk outside our center, and then we move inside to utilize our agility course to provide a fun way to interact and work on impulse control. Sessions end with a AA type circle session, relaxing on a mat with other dogs at a safe distance.
