Reactive Dog Training

Set your pup up for success.

Our human world has a lot going on, and all that busyness can be challenging and scary for a dog. We’ve developed training especially geared towards helping prepare dogs for success in the urban environment.

This training program starts with a session about understanding reactivity that covers everything you need to know about dog behaviour and communication before tackling the hands-on class work. Finally, we'll work to apply and build the skills taught in the hustle and bustle of often unpredictable urban settings.

Not sure what training program to enroll in? Or does your dog have a bite history?  Book a consult with one of our certified trainers to help determine what program is best for your dog!

  • Gain a solid base set of obedience skills (commands like "Sit", "Drop It", recall, loose-leash walking, polite greetings and much more)
  • Focus on building your dog's confidence around handling, people, and other dogs
