The show environment can present reactive dogs with many triggers often in overwhelmingly difficult circumstances.
- What happens if another dog bumps into your dog?
- Can your dog get through the door shared by all dogs at an event?
- If your dog is triggered, can you work through it? What is your dog's response?
- Should you even be there?
These concerns and many more will be addressed and answered in this seminar. While this seminar is geared to dogs who need to work in highly distracting environments, every dog owner will benefit from these techiniques and discussions.Learn how to make your dog more reliable, while they compete in performance sports or as a well mannered family companion.
