Reactivity is a term used to describe barking, lunging and growling at dogs, people or things. It's often described as an overreaction to something "normal" in the environment. Dogs, people or other things. This behaviour can occur while on a leash, behind a fence or at a window. It can look aggressive and can feel overwhelming to the human end of the leash.
If this sounds familiar, join me for a free information session on all things reactivity.

Where: SafeK9 Dates: Time: From 6:15 - 7:15 pm Every dog's behaviour, triggers, history and environment are unique to them. While I will happily answer any questions and give many examples, a formal assessment is required in order to create a proper training plan for each individual dog.
