Remedial Socialization Walking Class

175.00

Starting Tuesday May 8th:

11:15am

12:30pm

Specifically for remedial positive socialization, and desensitization in a controlled setting for shy, fearful, or reactive dogs.

The class will run for six weeks and is offered as a package of 6 training walks for $175.

Your dog will get exposed to a variety of dogs and people each week, with coaching for each interaction, so that you will feel more prepared to help your dog through real-life situations at home. The location provides lots of space and a relaxing setting to help the dogs feel more comfortable.

Learning how to safely spending more time around other dogs and people allows everyone to relax and desensitize. We will always keep the dogs under threshold, where they have enough space to observe but not react. Then we will walk them together (almost like parallel play for children!), work on pass-bys, relaxing as a group, meet-and-greets, and practice emergency situations.
