This training is specially designed for dogs that are reactive or aggressive toward other dogs or people. These are the dogs don’t do well in daycare or social settings. Dogs can become reactive for a variety of reasons, from poor socialization or trauma to genetic and mental health issues. This class teaches owners how to interpret their dog’s body language and intervene before a confrontations with another dog arises. We learn focus exercises and work on systematic desensitization using decoy dogs to overcome overstimulated reactions so your dog can learn to coexist with others instead of spending life in isolation. Reactive dog training is held one-on-one in multiple locations. During the winter, we work both at home and at Ruffin Inn Pet Lodge in Buffalo. We work in different environments to learn to be calm no matter where the dog is.
