Reactive Dog Course-- Get a Handle on your dog!

Does your dog lunge at other dogs while out walking?

The seminar examines all of the reasons that dogs become over reactive and aggressive towards other dogs (mainly) and also scrutinises strategies that can be used to improve their behaviour.

This course also looks at limitations on advice regarding dogs that display or use aggression (in the light of possible new legislation - which deals with dangerous/out of control dogs in public and also private places).

This is not just a lecture-- John will utilise selected reactive dogs (yes, we will ask dog owners in Christchurch) in order to demonstrate various ways of measuring and diagnosing aggression as well as showcasing behaviour modification and control training.

Who is this course for? Veterinarian, dog trainer, dog sitter, shelter employees, vet nurses or dedicated pet owner.
