Our Reactive Rover is a 7 week Behavior  Modification Program 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.

Our Reactive Rover Class is conducted outdoors plenty of room to move around. Dogs are trained in groups of one or two at a time so they are never overwhelmed. Each dog/handler pair is encouraged to progress at their own pace, paying careful attention to what your dog is comfortable with.  Your dog will learn good leash manners and to be calm, relaxed, and happy in the presence of other dogs.  You as the handler will learn how to read your dog’s body language to avoid trouble, how to deal with problems when they arise and how to set your reactive dog up for success in her daily routine.

Our Reactive Rover Course is based on the Behavior Adjust Training Program developed by Grisha Stewart. It is the newest cutting -edge training techniques for aggressive, fearful frustration in dogs.

 The purpose of the class is to rehabilitate behavior and empower your dog to gain confidence and social skills. Quite simply put: By safely allowing more control over their outcomes, especially in challenging conditions where fear, frustration and aggressive is more likely, dog parents will be successful shaping independent confident, better behaved dogs.
