Reactivity Club

£70 per month 

A week by week course for any age dog to help work through reactivity struggles around other dogs. These classes are on a weekly basis and build on a dogs skills via desensitisation and counterconditioning and slowly altering the dogs responses to other dogs. This sets them up for success in a controlled exposure and secure environment. During these classes we work on different approaches and scenarios around other dogs while building on techniques to help owners in uncontrolled situations. We also will work on building handling techniques and owner confidence. All classes are held in secure field so may vary slightly by timings (please check date and time for confirmation).
