Top Dogs Level 1 (Online Only) 08/31/22 at 6:15 PM

This class is for dogs with reactivity towards other dogs or people, who have not bitten or injured any person or other dog.

-------------------------------------------

All sessions in this six-week series will be held online, meeting weekly on Zoom and supported through Teachable, an exciting online/interactive module. Please note that the first session of this class is 1.5 hours long. The remaining 5 sessions are 50 minutes.

-------------------------------------------

Join us in a virtual classroom! All you need is a way to shoot videos (your phone!) and access to the internet. Your videos WILL NOT BE public unless you want them to be, but your teacher will be able to coach you on the exercises.

This 6-week course will give you and your reactive dog the skills necessary to navigate the everyday environment with reduced stress. With an emphasis on management, skills taught will include:

  1. Impulse control
  2. Threshold management
  3. Coping skills
  4. Emergency exits

And much more.

We recommend you have the below items by the first session:

  1. Clicker
  2. Standard leash
    1. No retractables!
    2. Nylon, leather, cotton, biothane or other non-chain material
    3. We recommend a flat leash in 1/2", 5/8", or 3/4" width
  3. Dog treats, kibble, or small objects such as candy, dried beans, etc.
  4. A cup or small bowl

This class is one of the prerequisites for our in-person Level 2 course, which will build upon the skills learned here to work toward a more confident and calm dog.

Please note that this class is not for dogs who have injured any person or other dog.
