About the event

Reactive Dog Social Skills Workshop with Mike Newland

Open to puppies & adult dogs

Date: Saturday 22nd June 10.30am to 12pm

Location: Merrist Wood College, Worplesdon, Guildford

Does your dog run off to greet other dogs and get themselves into conflict? Or get excited meeting people?

Does your dog bark or lunge towards other dogs in excitement, frustration or fear?

If you answered yes to the above, chances are your dog is lacking social skills!

A well socialised dog is one who is neutral towards dogs/people, neither over excited or afraid of them and able to ignore them, readily able to engage with their owners and enjoy their walks with their family. 

If you want a dog who can be more neutral towards other dogs/people and move on when asked without reacting, this is the workshop for you

We'll cover

  • Building neutrality around dogs/people
  • Counter conditioning exercises to change your dog's emotional response
  • Respond to a Leave it cue to learn to ignore dogs/people
  • Teaching the Middle cue as a safe space to avoid certain interactions
  • Learning to dis-engage from interactions quickly without conflict
  • Teaching a Let's Go cue and Backaways
  • Discussion about socialisation - do's and don'ts

Suitable for dogs with reactivity issues (barking at dogs for any reason)
