Group Therapy for Reactive Dogs
Group Therapy is designed for my clients with reactive dogs. You must have first done an In Home Assessment and be on a modification program with me, to attend.
Group Therapy is where you get to continue your dog training weekly. Once you’ve started my program at home, it’s important to continue training your dog and building on what you’ve started. This weekly outlet is crucial to your dogs overall rehabilitation.
In class your dog will learn how to remain focused while around other people and dogs. Your reactive dog will not have time to bark, lunge or react as we continually move the mind forward with some excellent focusing exercises. (See my Reactive Dog Class video here).
I have created a positive, trusting environment where your dog and yourself can develop a better relationship on lead and off lead.
Building owner confidence is also part of the process, most clients with reactive dog over time lose confidence, this class is designed to help you build that back.
Most people with reactive dogs struggle to practice around other dogs due to the unfair judgement of others. That’s exactly why training your dog in an environment that you feel safe and comfortable in will help with your progress and overall results.
You will be taught how to respond when your dog reacts, how to change the outcome and regather and move forward.
At no time will you be made to feel that you have a bad dog or you are a bad owner.
Group Therapy is about building the dog’s confidence and ability to stay calm around other dogs. We also work to develop the human behind the dog. When we have human and dog working in harmony, projecting calm confidence the results are exceptional.
It’s also important to know that having a reactive dog doesn’t mean you have an aggressive dog.
