You will learn what to do in day-to-day situations to help your reactive dog. Your dog will learn that it has control over his or her environment and that’s a beautiful thing! When that switch happens, your dog realizes he or she has other choices that pay much better than barking, lunging, growling, whining, charging or (insert undesirable behaviour here).

You will have experts coaching you through the exercises and guiding you along each step of the way. Your dog’s emotional reaction to the trigger is addressed and you will learn exactly what to do to help your dog change that reaction. Unwanted behaviours will be replaced with new, more appropriate and desirable behaviours.
