If you are uncomfortable or embarrassed to take your dog to a “regular” obedience class because of barking and/or lunging at other dogs, among other things, this class may be for you. Our classes take place in a supportive, safe and controlled environment under the careful guidance of several experienced trainers present during each session. We give you the skills and techniques to help identify your dog's triggers, and re-focus and re-condition your dog in a positive manner.
The training methods used will be based on both "BAT" Behavior Adjustment Training" and "CAT" Constructional Aggression Treatment approaches. We will use desensitization techniques; identify dogs' thresholds and triggers and work with the use of very high value food (of course, the dogs have to be very hungry for class for it to work).
