Hyper Dog to Calm Dog!
May 12th (Fully Booked!) or May 13th (Fully Booked) 2018
Hyper dogs can be fun, but no one wants a dog without an off switch! During this course, you will learn how to teach calmer behaviours and have your dog pay attention to you in the presence of other interesting and exciting things.
Many people struggle with dogs who show excited, erratic or hyper behaviours, especially when distracted. Without realising it, often these behaviour have been caused by an owner’s physical handling of their dog. For these dogs, physical contact has meant the start of some excited interaction. Often when they are excited, physical contact from their person follows. Learn how to use physical affection and stroking as a calm reinforcer, rather than a wind-up for your dog.
This course is suitable for dogs of any age who struggle to remain calm and focused on their owner around high distraction environments such as other dogs and people. Reactive dogs can attend, but not those with a history of aggression towards people or other dogs. As groups are being kept small, to maximise the number of handler places offered, John will run the course on Saturday and repeat it on Sunday.
