About the event

The Dog Who Barks at Dogs or People

Saturday 19th December

9.30am to 12.30pm

Max 4 dogs

This workshop will help you to understand the ins and outs of your dog's reactive behaviour, and show you simple and straight-forward training exercises that will help you to regain control and give you a greater understanding of your dog's behaviour

  • Dog body language - diagnosing and understanding why your dog barks at other dogs or people
  • The other end of the lead - understanding how you influence your dog's behaviour through the lead
  • Lead handling skills - learn how to reduce tension on your lead, to reduce lunging and barking
  • Simple cues - easy obedience exercises to help you to re-gain control at a critical moment
  • Emotions - learn how to change your dog's negative emotional response to a more positive one
  • Arousal - learn how to manage and control your dog's arousal levels so that he can make better choices
  • Relationship - learn key skills to improve your relationship with your dog, and build trust

Put all of the above together, and you'll have a much greater understanding of your dog's reactivity and how to work within your dog's limitations and make improvements to his behaviour.

This is an outdoor workshop, but due to the nature of the dogs attending, you must be prepared to leave your dog's in your car for short periods. Your car will be parked right next to the training field, so you will be able to see your car at all times.  You will learn with your dog, but also from watching others. It is not safe, or practical to have a group of reactive dogs out training at the same time, nor is it productive for your dog's progress.

There will be 4 dog spaces available

Price is £149 per dog - with access to the online reactivity clinic
