Reactive Dog Class

Does your dog bark or lunge at dogs or humans while on walks? Would you like your dog to feel more comfortable around passing strangers or dogs? This class is for you!

 

This five-week class utilizes a variety of techniques to teach you to help your dog feel calmer on a leash. You will go home with handouts and instructions each week.

 

9:00 AM on Saturday mornings at the Rhode Island College, 600 Mount Pleasant Avenue Providence RI 02908 East Campus - Kauffman Center Lot. See the map below.

 

It is suggested that you arrive early to get your dog used to the sights, sounds and smells before class begins. Your dog will be more successful if he is well exercised prior to the start of the class.

  • Carabiner securing collar to harness, unless your head halter has a safety clip
