• “I went into the store looking to find out about raw food options and Bonnie walked me through all the options. She also helped me the previous day over the phone with my questions regarding training. I was totally overwhelmed when I walked in because I have a Newfie puppy coming home next week and she put me at ease. It was a wonderful experience.” - Rachel M.

Mind Your Business (Reactive Dog)
Does your dog lunge, bark, and growl at dogs or people when out in public? Is it impossible to get him to listen to you when he is so reactive to other dogs? This class is designed to teach you skills and tools to help your dog control himself when faced with everyday triggers. The most important part of reducing reactivity in your reactive dog is to get him to pay more attention to you, instead of the source of his reactivity. This class will concentrate on your dog’s focus on you. As we teach your dog to pay more attention to you, he will look to you for leadership and guidance instead of to the dogs that are setting him off. This class is limited to four dogs and open to all dogs regardless of age and previous training. The first session will consist of a 15-minute private assessment of your dog.
