If your dog growls, barks, or lunges at dogs or people on leash, this class is for you! This Reactive Foundations Online course includes all three of our live-instructed, online reactive modules: Understanding Reactivity, Management for Reactive Dogs, and Training Fundamentals. This 3-part course provides you with a comprehensive understanding of what reactivity is, how it develops, how to manage/reduce it quickly, and how to train the key behaviors your dog will need to know prior to training in the real world.
