Reactive Dog Group Training – This is designed for a dog that reacts toward other dogs in a manner that the owner finds hard to control or scary. With all of our training safety of dog and human is our priority. We also understand exposure under control is what is needed.
For most dog parents who have a reactive dog, group training is a terrifying thought so this is how we do it for you. You will have 2 x 30min home lessons first – this is to assess and to ensure you have the knowledge that we teach you to be able to control your dog. We will give you homework and there is a few weeks between visits to practice. We then put you into a basic obedience class like any normal dog. As part of our program any dog that does basic obedience can repeat for free as many times as they want for one year, as long as there is space in the class. We have limits on class size for safety and so you can get the most out of your learning.
This also means compared to some classes you are getting a different set of dogs every 3-4 weeks. This will benefit your dog by proofing them against multiple dogs not just the same dogs week in week out.
You will also get in home videos to watch to assist you with your training during this journey. We are here to help and support you and there are many people who have been where you are.
We are about affordable Pet Care.
We do not charge extra for multiple dogs in the same household. Please note to take advantage of any package deals payment in Full must be done at the end of the first lesson – All trainers have Credit Card Facilities for ease of payment.
We now offer Payment plans via Afterpay which are accessed via our online shop.
If you live in an apartment complex please ensure there is parking available or we may not be able to do the lesson.
With Reactive Dog Training we do everything we can to assist you but ultimately it comes down to you the human to want to fix the situation. If you are not prepared to do as we ask you will not get the results we know you can. There is no magical pill – just hard work and dedication to your family member – the Dog. Extra assistance post training can be done thru our Club membership. This training is designed for any dog that acts in a way toward another dog that is inconsistent with expected norms. This includes at one end of the scale Labradors who just want to “Hug”everyone in the park which gets them into fights or pulls their humans over trying to love other humans – all the way up to the other end of the scale with dogs that have been attacked and are fear aggressive or have progressed through to outright attacking other dogs on the walk. We show you how to initially get control both with your leadership in the home and outside then work with you to change the behaviour of your dog so that it makes a better decision. This creates confidence in you and in your dog to be able to be out in public. This is not suitable for aggression toward humans that behaviour requires our aggression Pack. There is still a lot of work that is required by the human to teach your dog to make a better decision we help you to do that.
