Does your dog consistently react strongly to humans or other dogs?
Reactive dogs have a hard time focusing on their owner during the class making it hard for them to learn and retain the information they are being taught. If you are unsure if your dog will be successful in a group training class, a Drop-In training class is a great way to see if your dog is able to learn in the busy environment our training center provides.
If you have any concerns about the behaviors your dog displays, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (515) 473-9131.
