Your dog will learn manners for real world situations like walking among other dogs at a store or outdoor park, laying at your feet while you eat at an outdoor cafe, waiting for you to go through the door when your arms are full, etc. Please check out the program at Swim classes in the summer! 6 week series.

  • Feisty Fido – If you have a dog who is barking and lunging at other dogs while on leash, you are not alone. It’s a very common behavior problem, even if the same dog gets along well with others OFF leash. It is also a problem with a high rate of successful treatment. This is a 6 week course  where we concentrate on leash reactivity using a combination of LAT “Look at That” and BAT “Behavior Adjustment Training”. Classes are outdoors at a variety of locations. First session is without dogs so you can learn about body language and the 2nd session you practice with the trainer’s dogs. After the 6 session course bi-weekly practice for 2 months is included. Only 2 students per course.
