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? Mind Your Business is designed to teach you skills and tools to help your dog control himself 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! Check schedule for dates, times and locations.
