Social Skills Class
This four week Social Skills course teaches owners the tools to help their anxious, fearful and aggressive dogs through daily life. Skills like leash handling, self-soothing and coping mechanisms are covered. It also provides an opportunity for dogs to gradually practice being in the vicinity of other dogs, in a supervised and supportive environment.
This course is ideal for any dogs exhibiting socially inappropriate behaviors, including (but not limited to):
– being shy or timid
– barking uncontrollably
– lunging or snapping at other dogs
– overly excitable
