At The Training Studio, Anxiety and Reactivity is our specialty. Whether there’s reactivity to people or other dogs, our trainers have a great deal of experience in working with worried dogs who may use aggression to manage situations. These group classes can help your anxious dog build their ability to focus and build confidence. The tools learned in these classes can go a long way to helping you and your anxious and reactive pup to navigate the world.
