Many dogs lunge, pull and bark at other dogs, objects or people when on-leash, a behavior we call “leash reactivity.” Living with a leash-reactive dog can be quite difficult but it can change with training.
Typically, we meet with you in your home on the first session to learn more about the behaviors your dog is exhibiting and to teach you and your dog some foundational exercises in a quiet environment. We will then meet you out and about where the behaviors you want to change are occurring; perhaps near a dog park so we can practice. We do not go into the dog park but we may work around and near a dog park so we can teach you and your dog new behaviors and practice them. After every session you will receive a detailed, personalized report with the behavior modification exercises we taught you. We are available between sessions to coach you as needed. We look forward to working with you and your canine companion so you can both enjoy many walks together!
