Does your dog struggle with reactivity (barking or lunging at dogs, people bicycles, vehicles, etc.) while on walks or out in public? If so, our Reactive Rover class will give you tools to address these problem behaviors and help your dog feel calmer, safer and more secure on walks in the presence of their triggers.
This is a 6-week hybrid course: 50 percent online via Microsoft Teams, 50 percent in person. The first three classes will be held online where you will meet your instructor and class members and get personalized instruction and “homework” assignments each week to be completed with your dog. Weeks 4-6 will be in-person at Berkshire Humane Society, where you will have an instructor assigned to work with you and your dog to integrate the skills you learned online into a group class setting (among other dogs and humans). This class will be SMALL (4 dogs maximum) and has a 1-to-1 student-teacher ratio during classroom time to ensure individualized instruction and success for each dog-handler team
Class Schedule: Saturday
