If your dog growls, barks, or lunges at dogs or people on leash, this is your first step to a happier, more relaxed dog!

This 3-week class meets live weekly and will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what reactivity is, how it develops, how to manage/reduce it quickly, and will introduce you to the training techniques that will resolve the behavior long-term
