This class offers help for reactive dogs. Does your dog lack focus? Is he highly excitable? Does he lunge, bark, growl overreact or bite at the leash? In this class, we teach dogs how to relax and redirect their attention away from distractions in a safe environment. Additionally, we give you tips on safely handling difficult situations you may encounter with your dog.

 

Class size: Maximum 4 dogs

 

Fee: $175

 

Requirements:

  • Current vaccinations

  • If your dog has bitten another dog or person, we recommend a private lesson before enrolling in Relaxed Rover.

Intro to Nose Games is designed to tap into your dog’s primary sense – his amazing sense of smell! This class introduces the concept of a search game that you can play at home, and helps you learn to read your dog’s body language while giving your dog a fun sniffing workout! Each week increases the level of challenge for your dog. Any dog is welcome (reactive, shy, exuberant, senior dogs, etc.). The exercises are performed with one dog at a time and are tailored to set up each dog to succeed. No prior training is needed. The only requirements are a 6-foot leash and a generous supply of your dog’s favorite yummy treats. This class is similar to  K9 Nose Work  developed by Ron Gaunt, Amy Herot, and Jill Marie O’Brien.

 

Class size: Maximum 4 dogs 

 

Fee: $125

 

Requirements:

  • Current vaccinations

  • Minimum age 20 weeks

  • 6-foot leash
