A specialised class for dogs who bark, lunge and otherwise show aggression when on a lead around other dogs. This science-based class will help you calm your leash reactive dog and gives you the confidence to walk your dog in public again. With a high student-teacher ratio this class is limited to a maximum of four participant dogs and their families, with an additional four places available for auditors – people who attend as observers and can use the skills to practice at home with their own dogs. An application form is sent following registration to determine the best candidates for this highly successful positively-based class.
Each weekly 90-minute session covers a range of useful and positively developed skills under experienced and qualified instruction with veterinary behaviour endorsement and ongoing support.

A specialist class for any age of dog over 3 intensive sessions. Build a more reliable recall or “come quickly when called” off-lead –  for in the park or on the beach. Includes an off-site practice session at a local park. Dogs attending must be both people friendly and socially comfortable around other dogs, as this class involves considerable off-lead activities.
