You’re trying to walk your dog, but it’s stressful because every time another dog appears, your dog begins to growl, bark or lunge. You’re holding on for dear life, trying to pull your dog away while shouting apologies at the other dog’s human. You’re not alone! This class will give you the tools to go out and about without the stress you’re experiencing now. You may not have a dog that likes other dogs, but by the end of the 6 weeks, your pet will look to you for guidance rather than taking the situation into his own paws.
This class requires evaluation with our expert trainer before sign-up. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
