Work in a safe, supportive environment
as your dog learns appropriate ways to behave around their triggers!
Reactive Rover is a course designed to help owners with reactive dogs (dogs that react negatively to other dogs and/or people exhibiting behaviors such as growling, barking, lunging, shaking, or shutting down in the presence of such stimuli) learn better management and handling skills based on Emma Parson's highly acclaimed book, "Click to Calm; Healing the Aggressive Dog."
The course is also intended to help re-condition the dogs response to such stimuli to help create a positive association through scientifically-proven clicker training methods. Because of the sensitive nature of this course, the dogs must be evaluated prior to enrollment and must strictly adhere to all required safety protocol.
This course is limited to 5 dogs and homework will be handed out at each class and students are encouraged to keep in contact with the trainers outside of class.
Our Reactive Rover Accelerated Program is intended for those who would like to put their reactive dog behavior modification program on the fast track. It includes enrollment in our Reactive Rover - Level 1 group class plus four private training sessions from the instructor outside of the classroom. This program helps speed up the rehabilitation process to help make training more efficient and effective.
This program includes:
Reactive Rover 2 builds upon the progress made in Reactive Rover 1 through the implementation of games & exercises which facilitate closer work between the dog & handler teams and their triggers. Emphasis will remain upon changing how the dog feels about their trigger/s, helping them practice and improve upon alternative behaviors to reacting and improving handler management. Class is limited to 5 dogs.
