Reactive Dog Training
Does your normally sweet and loveable dog change into Cujo when he or she sees another dog or person? We can help you to understand and change this behavior.
Working with an experienced, and certified professional, we will show you how to change your dog’s on-leash reactive behavior toward other dogs or people (or whatever) out on walks. Having issues with your dog reacting toward visitors in the home? We can help modify that behavior as well. After every private lesson, you will receive a complete written report and handouts so that you can practice successfully at home.

The goal of this training will be to help you learn to lower stress (in both you and your dog), build calmness and attention, train alternate behaviors to reactivity and/or over-arousal, reinforce the absence of reactivity, and most importantly build your dog’s confidence and trust in you to support a safe emotional state which will facilitate behavior change.
How does it work?
Most people want to know how we can change their dog’s fear aggressive behavior in the home when other dogs (or other stimuli) are not around. Simple; we create new skills and behaviors first. Both you and your dog need time to practice these alternative behaviors. Then when you are both practiced and skilled, the stimulus (dogs, people, cars, etc) is added in a controlled way and at a safe distance. In this way, your dog builds confidence, first in a distraction-free place and then in the real world.
