Leash Reactivity 1 Dog Training Classes

Enroll

In our Leash Reactivity 1 dog training classes, dogs learn to build tolerance towards each other in a safe environment.


We Use Large Barriers During Class



Does your dog growl or even snap at other dogs while on leash? If so, you probably already know how challenging it can be to work on training - in order to build tolerance towards other dogs, you need to be around them, and this can make the problem worse. That's why the leash reactivity course is so great! You can practice being around other dogs, in a very controlled environment where all the participants are in the same situation.

In Leash Reactivity 1, we use large barriers that keep the dogs hidden from each other until they are brought out for various exercises, usually no more than one or two at a time in the beginning. The exercises are geared towards desensitizing dogs towards each other, such as seeing them from a distance, and from the use of props. By the end of the 6-week course, many of the dogs can pass each other and are much lower on the reactivity scale.

We also give you home exercises, so you can keep practicing in between sessions.

The room is spacious, so the dogs have plenty of room to spread out. The class size is small, so it is not overwhelming to the dogs. In addition, the trainer is highly expererienced in helping dogs with reactivity issues. No dogs are ever allowed off leash during this course.

Please note that this class is for dogs who are reactive towards other dogs. We understand that some dogs don't react well towards humans either. We do take precautions to avoid any bites, including ensuring that the other people in the class don't get too close to your dog. The trainer may walk up to you from time-to-time, at a safe distance.
