Hands Up If This Is You?

  Your dog is a pussy cat at home but a raging werewolf outdoors.
  You wish your dog was calmer on walks
  You struggle to cope when your dog sees another dog
  Your dog barks and lunges at least once on every walk.
  You wish you could have a relaxing dog walk but always get home feeling more stressed than before you went out.
  You have blamed your dog for their behaviour and then felt awful afterwards.
  You have cried more than once after a dog all because you don't know how to help your dog.
  You think you should be able to understand your dog and blame yourself because you can't.

You are not alone. Canine Reactive Behaviour seems to be at an all-time high. Our dogs are living in a world that is worrying to them, where they are exposed to so many human inventions that they can be stressed and in “fight or flight” a lot of the time. I have a reactive boy myself and whilst he’s eleven now we have been through some wild times together.

This course is right for you because within it we focus entirely on understanding and long-term change. There's no force or anything sinister in it. It's all positive and kind. We consider why your dog becomes reactive and how together, we can help them. We cover what’s happening inside your dog, why they make the choices they do, how this response is affecting them physically and could make them ill. You learn how you can stop the reaction before it starts, how to implement new and healthier choices, how to break habits that lead to reactivity, how to build your dog's resilience and much, much more.

This isn’t a quick fix promise, as they generally make things worse. It’s a lifelong, accurate understanding of how your dog feels and how you can help them feel better and therefore behave better. But it does work quickly when you learn and apply the knowledge.
