Teaching a Reactive Dog Class
This Session teaches experienced instructors how to teach reactive dog classes safely. A “reactive dog class” is one specifically designed for reactive and aggressive (biting) dogs.The structure is a classroom setting with several other dogs, in contrast to one-to-one behavioral counseling.
This Session is geared toward teachers who may already be using clicker training principles in one-to-one behavioral counseling involving reactive and aggressive dogs, but who are interested in a service that could expand their impact on the many dogs and owners who need assistance.
Using slides and videos, Emma gives students a base reactive-dog class curriculum that uses clicker training. She provides instructions on how to set up and lead a class that keeps trainers, owners, and dogs all safe.
