This human-only seminar will be presented by Angie Yong, PhD.
Do you have a dog that goes nuts when he sees another dog? Do you find yourself embarrassed or constantly apologizing for your dog's behaviour? Are you considering no longer walking your dog because the effort is herculean and you just don't know how to manage the walk anymore? Is one of your biggest fears meeting an off-leash dog while you are out walking your dog? YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
At the Ottawa Canine School, we specialize in reactive dogs. We have designed this seminar to be at once a pre-requisite for the Reactive Rover class but also as a means to share with you what we have learned over the years. Seminars, workshops, books, and conferences have taught us a lot, but so have our own dogs and our clients' dogs.
Here are a few of the topics that will be covered during this interactive and informative seminar:
• What is Reactivity
• Common reactive behaviours
• The methods we use to change these behaviours based on up-to-date science of learning, dog behaviour, and dog cognition
• Things you can start doing TODAY to start making changes
• How to read your dog
• How to interpret behaviour
** This is a 2 HOUR SEMINAR for people only. Please DO NOT bring your dog.**
Intended audience: general public and participants registered in the Reactive Rover class*.
*This seminar is a PRE-REQUISITE for Reactive Rover classes. The seminar fee is included in Reactive Rover I course fee.
