You receive a training treat pouch, detailed hand-outs and training treats!

REACTIVE DOG MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Some dogs appear to be reactive to stimuli that other dogs don’t glance twice at. For the owner of a reactive dog, the sheer pleasure of going for a walk, or joining in dog club activities can turn into a traumatic experience for both ends of the lead. The reactive dog is not necessarily an aggressive dog, though inexperienced people may label it as such. It will certainly display a dislike of having its space invaded by rude or over zealous dogs! Stress, anxiety, excitement and anticipation can all cause a dog to be reactive. Some dogs may be reactive due to genetics, others due the environment or a traumatic incident that has occurred to them at some time. Can we help these dogs and their owners? Yes we can!This program includes your six private in-home sessions, hand out notes, training treats and support.
