A Word From Your Instructor

Mary Angilly

If you have a dog who is reactive on leash it can be frustrating, stressful, and embarrassing, but it doesn’t have to be! Not only can you teach your dog behaviors that are incompatible with barking, lunging, and growling, but you can achieve these results with force-free methods, making sure you feel good about how you get there. ​ I have had reactive dogs in my family, and specialize in working with them professionally, so I remember the awful feeling of wanting to hide behind cars or bushes when seeing someone with a dog walking by, or having to walk a dog in the middle of the night. You are you dog *can* do this and I’ll be with you every step of the way to help with questions as they come up throughout the course.
