Do you have a dog that lunges, snarls, growls, or barks at other dogs or people? Does the thought of going out with your pup in public fill you with dread? Living with a reactive dog can be stressful and feel isolating. You are not alone – being a dog in the city is HARD! A lot of dogs struggle in urban environments and struggle with varying levels of reactivity. Our trainers can help you to better understand why your dog is struggling, what they are trying to communicate and how to help them feel more at ease in their environment. Behavior plans are customized for you and your pup to maximize success in helping them to think, assess and make better choices.
