A few more words about this course

This course provides you with a simple, step-by-step guide for reducing your dog's leash reactivity. It is structured to focus first on foundation skills, then on defensive handling maneuvers, and finally, on desensitization & counterconditioning to create lasting behavior change.
Throughout this course you will discover how to:

  • Understand the common factors that cause reactive behavior in our dogs
  • Read and respond to your dog's subtle body language cues on walks
  • Help your dog be more attentive, relaxed, and responsive on walks
  • Protect your dog's emotional wellbeing with proactive defensive handling
  • Create lasting behavior change by focusing on improving your dog's emotional & physiological state in the presence of their triggers
