Our Reactive Rover program is suitable for dogs that react to other dogs, people, and many other things they encounter in day to day life. Dogs may display their reactivity aggressively, fearfully, anxiously or overly excited. Their behaviours towards their triggers may include barking, growling, raising their hair, lunging, pulling on the leash, tail tucking, shaking, or running away. All different types of dogs who struggle with these reactions would benefit from this program by learning to handle and deal with their triggers in a new, positive way and turning to their handler for guidance, comfort, and direction.
This class will provide owners and handlers with the critical skills required to safely assist their dog and navigate daily challenges that may arise in their homes or communities. The class will build trust and confidence between the handler and their dog utilizing only positive-reinforcement and counter-conditioning methods.
