Sundays 10:00 a.m.

This is a virtual class via Zoom. For more information about virtual classes is available here: What You Need.

Instructor: Mel Hardwick

Managing a Reactive Dog is an entry-level course for dogs who frantically growl, bark and lunge at dogs, people, or moving objects while out on walks.  We will complete exercises designed to address the root cause of reactivity: the emotional state of the dog.  We will also complete exercises that help the dog have better focus on his or her guardian and teach behaviors other than reacting. These exercises are designed for everyday dog guardians who are not professional trainers. Our goal is to help you maintain better control of your companion.

We will not cover how to introduce your dog to new animals or people.

If you have any questions regarding whether this class is right for you and your dog, please call Gail Bird Necklace at 804-521-1332.
