Over Reactive Rovers

8 week impulse control and socialization class $500

Having an over reactive dog is stressful on owners and dogs. An over reactive dog will lunge, bark, snap, growl, and create a multitude of problems when on a walk, in a car, or at your front door. These dogs can react when approached by another dog, a human, or a wheeled vehicle such as a bike or skateboard. This is dangerous, and damages our relationship with our dogs, causing many owners to rehome or even euthanize their pet. An over reactive dog needs help and structure to learn how to be in the presence of others with out feeling the need to defend or guard. Over Reactive Rovers is an intense 8 week course that is split into two sections. The first four weeks you and your dog will work with me and my personal pack. We will desensitize your dog to the situations in which they over react. The last four weeks we will practice these new skills in a group as we walk, do basic commands and learn to relax around and among unknown humans and dogs alike. You will leave this class knowing how to manage your dog around strange dogs and humans with confidence, alleviating your dog from undue stress, and affirming your dogs trust in you.
