2018 Training Seminars & Workshops
Reactive Rover Seminar  
October 21, 2018 Salida CO 9:00am - 5:00pm
Want your dog to be happier and more relaxed when it sees other dogs?  This is for dogs that are fear reactive or over-excited reactive when they see other dogs.  Changing behavior by using proven, peer reviewed scientific methods of positive reinforcement with counter-conditioning. We will introduce counter-conditioning to change your dog's conditioned emotional response (CER) when it sees another dog.  We will train replacement behaviors for you to use when you encounter other dogs.  Owners will learn the necessary skills of helping their dogs overcome their reactivity.
Let's make walking your dog on leash and enjoyable experience for you and your dog!

For this seminar, dogs cannot have a bite history.  If your dog does have a bite history, it would be appropriate for private behavior modification.
