LEASH REACTIVITY REHAB
Rowdy & Reactive I
Orientation + Private Session + Six Group Sessions
Get help now for you rowdy, leash lunging dog.
Orientation: The orientation is from 2:30 pm until 5:30 pm and is without your dog. You’ll learn about equipment, body language, management, training and more for leash lunging dogs. You’ll watch part of a class in progress. You’ll receive an overview of the program, written handouts, program goal tracking sheets, and instructions for what you need to do during the week to prepare you for class.
Private Session: Handling a dog that is likely to pull, bark, and lunge without careful, skillful, management is a challenge. 45 minutes with you, your dog, a trainer focused solely on coaching you, and a second trainer (handling a trained helper-dog) jump-starts your progress and helps prepare you for class.
Group Sessions: Group sessions are Sundays at 3:00 pm; 4:30 pm; or 7:30 pm. In the group sessions, you will learn to help your dog relax and respond to you even when other dogs are in sight. Your dog will learn and practice a new behavior that is incompatible with lunging at other dogs. In the process, he will start to feel more comfortable being around his triggers. The program thus focuses on two aspects of your dog’s reaction on leash: what he does and how he feels.
All dogs progress at their own pace. Our classroom sessions give you and your dog hours of focused practice with your new skills in the controlled presence of other dogs. After your six classroom sessions you can elect to take more Level I group classes ($100 for each set of three additional classes) or, if you are ready, you can graduate to Level II: New Challenges, take On Leash Agility For Space Sensitive Dogs, or take Teamwork Training For Focus & Relaxation.
