This video shows you how to structure and run reactive dog classes. It gives suggestions for prerequisite lessons and skills, as well as exercises to use in class, including examples of advanced, custom-made exercises for particular dogs’ challenges.
Whether you are teaching a reactive class, a student in one, or working on your own, this video will show how to use positive reinforcement, shaping, and classical conditioning to help your dog learn to tolerate the world around him. There are no magic solutions to reactivity, but through working consistently in the manner in which you see here, a whole world of possibilities opens up, often possibilities unforeseen. Take this opportunity to change the way you perceive your dog’s reactivity.
