Turn Your Stressful Walks In To Calm, Happy Interactions

We can easily get into a situation where walking our dogs is stressful, especially if they react to other dogs, or are scared and anxious. This course is designed to help you understand your dog’s reactive behaviour and guide you through ten practical steps to positive change. Created specifically with walking in mind and for guardians who are worried about their dog’s behaviour on walks.

First we cover the reasons for behaviour changes on walks and how your dog may be feeling. Then we explore canine communication and how you can recognise your dog's emotional state through their body language and facial expression. Next we move onto step by step instructions for teaching new and helpful reactions through positive canine coaching. Finishing on a confidence test and collection of your certificate.On successful completion of this course, you will understand;
