Reactive Dog Class
Reactive Dog Class
Got a dog who doesn't play well with others? Maybe your new rescue lunges and barks at other dogs? Tries to bite other dogs or people?
If your pet need reparative socialization with other dogs or people enroll in my Reactive Dog Class. This class is specifically geared to dogs with these kinds of problems.
The purpose of the Reactive Dog class is to teach dogs to relax around other dogs, stop barking and lunging at other pets and reduce aggression toward humans and dog.
Lots of dogs with a history of attacks from other dogs, lack of socialization or poor previous circumstances aren't able to join a 'regular' class just yet. They can't settle down and feel safe and comfortable around other dogs. These dogs cannot learn in class as they are thinking about the other dogs, not thinking about learning manners. Regular classes do not teach the special skills needed to re socialize and calm a nervous dog.
To ensure safety for pets and people all dogs are required to wear a basket mask. The ideal brand is the Baskerville. I call this tool a mask and not a muzzle as it is not painful, does not squeeze the dog's face and is treat friendly. You'll be able to reward your pet, with the basket mask on, with delicious treats as he learns to relax and be friendly.
I do not use shock collar, choke chains or pinch collars in the Reactive Dog class. Most of the dogs enrolled are rescues and have endured plenty of abuse in the past. More abuse from collars that produce pain does not help.
Baskerville muzzles are available on Amazon.com in all sizes.
