Training is available for dogs with behavior issues, such as fear and aggression, resource guarding and separation anxiety. Help them to change the way they view their environment and improve their behavior.
Not all dogs are ready for a class environment, or your busy schedule might not allow you to attend the Reactive Rover class. We offer private and in-home training for those who desire a customized solution to improve your dog's manners.
The first step is an initial consultation, which will give us an opportunity to do several things: explore and determine the root of the issues, explain training options, share some management pointers to take the edge off quickly, and answer your pressing questions. The Consultation is conducted via Zoom and will last about 1.5 hours. All major stakeholders should participate to ensure that everyone is able to contribute and is on the same page.
Cost: $175; $75 non-refundable deposit will be charged at the time of scheduling
This class uses Behavior Adjustment Training, or BAT, to rehabilitate dogs with reactivity issues, including fear, aggression, and frustration. While BAT is not the only tool we will use in this class, it is the central one. You will be amazed at how quickly the dogs progress.
We determine the functional reward(s) for your dog’s problem behavior and then find other behaviors that can reasonably lead to that same reward. By working with the dog in a sub- threshold (relaxed) state, he learns to offer this alternative behavior instead of barking and lunging, for example.
