        Helping the Leash Reactive Dog Webinar


        Course Description:

          • Rachael Johnston, Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner, and the developer of When Hounds Fly’s Reactive Dog program, will guide you through what reactivity is, how and why it develops, and how you can begin to help your dog work through their reactivity challenges.

          • Reactivity is very common amongst urban dogs, as they struggle with overwhelming stressors every day. Barking and lunging is their way of coping with this – but take heart, there’s a lot you can do to help your dog! We help people every day.

          • This 2 hour webinar is an excellent starting point for understanding what it takes to effectively and humanely help your reactive dog, and sets you up for success for subsequent private lessons or attending a Reactive Dog Group Class
