This class is for dogs that bark at other dogs or people while out on leash, or fearfully in the home. In the trainer world we called this reactivity, and it can happen for a number of different reasons.

In this class you’ll learn about your dog’s behavior, how to prevent and manage it, and each week we’ll work on various training exercises addressing these behaviors.

NOTE: This class is not for dogs that bark in the home at the doorbell or people that knock. To address that behavior, give us a call and we can schedule a private lesson in the home. 

Classes are $160 for 5 weeks and run for 1 hour, located in Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo. 

Please contact for availability.

Bark-a-holics Practice Group

This is a practice group for dogs who are reactive to other dogs while on-leash, or dogs who are aggressive either towards people or other dogs. Reactive and aggressive behaviors can be the result of a wide range of behavior issues. 

This class is for students that have already gone through some private lessons and have been working on the reactivity, but need more practice in real situations with other dogs. 

Classes are run for 1 hour, located in Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo.
