Reactive Dog Workshop
Your dog's reactive behaviour is likely triggered by various factors such as fear, excitement, or frustration. In such situations, the only response your dog knows is to overreact. The purpose of this workshop is to help you understand why your dog reacts this way and provide you with the necessary tools to help them cope better with different situations. By adjusting their behaviour and equipping them with new strategies, we aim to improve their overall well-being.
What will we learn:
The workshop will last approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The workshop will be in our conference area and without your dogs, so you can leave them at home.
What are you going to take home from this workshop?
A better understanding of your dog’s behaviour, why your dog is reacting and how to help them. With better understanding comes your confidence, you will be able to handle situations better.
Tools, strategies and exercises to practice on your walk to avoid reactivity, to calm your dog down if a reaction happens.
Following the class, we have 1:1 sessions with the instructor to help build on the reactivity skills taught in the initial workshop, following a successful 1:1, we will then move to a group class setting of no more than 6 dogs to allow you and your pup to put your skills into place and work on this further.
Anything else needed before booking?
Before booking onto the workshop we would like you to have your dog checked by a vet to make sure he/she is not dealing with pain or health problems. Pain, discomfort, physical limitations can cause behaviour problems.
