Tucker Pup's is considered an "essential business" and we are open and available for boarding, daycare, and grooming.

Training is currently on hold through April 7, when the statewide lockdown expires. The government could push this date back, so we are not scheduling any classes or socials until we have more certainty.

We will soon be providing virtual classes and private lessons, where you will participate from your device at home. They would follow the same curriculum, and you would still be able to access TrainTrack in order to view the homework, watch videos, and track your progress. Let us know if you are interested. If you have already signed up for training, we will let you know more very soon.

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 our Leash Reactivity class, 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.



Highlights from a Leash Reactivity Class (2:26)



We had a great experience in David's Leash Reactivity class! I learned so many helpful skills, tips, and tricks to help me manage my dog's reactive behavior when she's outside on a leash. Her behavior has improved tremendously and walks have become so much easier! I can't recommend this class enough.
