Does your dog act aggressively, excitedly or fearfully on walks?

This course is for you!

 

For Humans Only - you will not be managing your reactive dog while trying to listen and learn at the same time.  The format includes lecture, group participation, skill building exercises, Q & A and more.

Join other caring dog parents who want to make walks better for their dogs.

Does your dog over-react to strangers, other dogs, bikes, skateboards and other triggers you encounter on walks?  Does he bark, whine, lunge, spin, hide, tremble or jump up? Are you feeling stressed, exhausted or embarrassed by the situation?  This course is for you.

 

In three 1-hour sessions, you will learn the ABCs of dog reactivity, loose-leash walking, skills to change your dog’s emotions around triggers, tools to manage in tough situations, how to build a solid recall and ways to set both of you up for success on walks.

 

This course will help you to reduce your dog’s leash reactivity and make walks enjoyable once again.

"So proud of Miku! Thank you, Bonnie for giving us 

the tools to help Miku become less reactive and more

confident around other dogs. We will continue to practice skills we learned in class so that Miku can enjoy living her best life with her furry pals."
