Sometimes, as pet owners, we struggle to help our dogs with unwanted behaviors. If we do not understand why our dogs exhibit certain behavior, it makes it difficult to find a solution. This class will help with reactive dogs by learning to reinforce good behavior while stifling the negative ones. Reactive behaviors can include a variety of problems such as: biting or nipping, leash reactivity, cage aggression, food aggression, other aggressive behaviors, and more.
