Reactive Rover (Thurs May 23 @ 12:30)
Is Reactive Rover Class Right for your Dog?
The Intro level RR class is the best fit for dogs that:
* React by staring, barking, pulling and/or lunging towards other dogs when on a leash
* May be comfortable living with other dogs or interacting when leashes are off.
* Are Comfortable with most people and objects in the environment. (Dogs that react to multiple “triggers” often have trouble
in the class room setting.)
* Are not necessarily aggressive, but may be fearful and/or overly excited when they see another dog.
* Are able to focus on the handler and eat tasty treats (or play with a favorite toy) if other dog are 5′ to 35′ away.
* Are comfortable wearing a front- attachment harness (or in some cases, a gentle leader head halter).
* Live in a environment where they can be kept at a distance from other dogs during training
If your dog demonstrates reactive behavior to multiple triggers ( dogs, people, bicycles, etc.) we recommend that you pursue one-on-one training with a qualified trainer.
If you dog is having a difficult time with a specific dog (or dogs) in the home environment, we recommend that you pursue one-on-one training with a qualified trainer.
If your dog is truly aggressive toward other dogs and/or people (snaring,snapping,biting) we recommend that you pursue one-on-one training with a qualified animal behaviorist.
If your dog is distracted by small animals (Cats, squirrels, rabbits, etc.) the Control Unleashed Class may be a better fit.
