for Dogs Who Are Reactive On-Leash . . . .
Does your dog bark, howl, growl or lunge at other dogs or people
when out for an on-leash walk?
Bring your dog to the "calm doggie gym"!

What it is:  A club where dogs who are reactive on-leash can practice learning to relax and stay calm
with the technique called Behavior Adjustment Training. 

What is Behavior Adjustment Training?   With this technique people practice having their dogs behave calmly in a situation where they would usually be reactive.  The rewards for calm behavior are real-life rewards, usually trotting away from another dog (release of social pressure).  It gives your dog a chance to choose to be calm instead of being reactive.

Usually your dog barks & growls at another dog or person to make them go away, and it works because you DO leave the area!  We will give your dog what he/she wants---increased distance from those "triggers"---for offering calm behaviors instead.  Working opposite another dog/handler team at a distance great enough so that your dog will not be reactive, which is called working “under threshold”, your dog gets to practice approaching another dog and person and offering “calming signals” instead of erupting into a barking frenzy.

Goal:  To have your dog behave calmly in the presence of other dogs and people.
