For many dogs seeing other dogs on a walk is a strong emotional trigger for growling, barking, pulling and lunging on leash. If you dread going for walks with your dog, this is the class for you. This class is for dogs who struggle to remain calm in the presence of other dogs because they are worried or overstimulated about other dogs. Together we will work on desensitization & counter conditioning, BAT, and CAT protocols to help your dog learn how to be calm around other dogs. You will join other pet parents and their dogs to work together, supporting one another and building your skills as a team with your dog.
Through this class you will learn how to:
- Anticipate a reaction coming & get out of potential reactive situations with success
- Help condition your dog feel more comfortable in the presence of other dogs
- Find low stress places to walk your dog
- Be your dog’s best advocate
