Growl Class
Whether your dog is reactive, fearful, aggressive, or super-duper friendly, this is the class for you. Or, if you have a dog that for no reason keeps getting attacked, this class can prevent that from continuing. These classes are designed to give the owner's the tools that they need to work with your dog. Your dog may not leave this class 'cured' but you will leave more confident and educated knowing how to read your dog and how to help him to become a good citizen. This intense and always positive class will give you a lot of daily homework - the more often you can train, the quicker your problems will go away. The main goal of this class is to have all dogs work through the exercises each week, WITHOUT EVER AGGRESSING. All dogs will wear haltis, and muzzles if needed - meaning that this class is a safe place for your dog to work on his skills and gain more confidence. Dogs will enjoy coming to this class and re-learning the social skills that they are lacking. After week six, we take all of our classroom lessons out into the real world. We then get to practise walking as a pack, and walking past strange dogs.
