rottweiler smallSkills for the Reactive Dog Workshop

Living with a reactive dog can be difficult.  In this presentation Jane will explain how to help your dog learn to turn away from triggers such as other dogs, bikes, cars, etc.  Having a dog that lunges and barks and completely "tunes out" the human end of the leash can be embarrassing, frustrating, and sometimes scary.  Over the years, Jane has noticed that more often than not, it is how the leash is handled that triggers the dog into the unfavourable reaction. During the presentation, you will learn how to connect with your dog using an understanding of Dog Speak and how movement can influence the outcome.  Learn leash skills that will communicate with rather than control your dog. 

This presentation is for the human end of the leash only, but do bring your dog's will be learning the mechanics of leash skills on each other rather than learning on your dog.

The next presentation will be held at the Canine Conduct Training Grounds on Sunday, March 4, 2018 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.  This presentation follows the Dog Speak presentation.
