Click here to view dates and book this courseReactive Dog Training

This course is designed for dogs that have dog to dog reactivity or dog aggressive. Usually this means the dog will  lunge, bark or growl when passing other dogs. This reactive dog course will teach you the skills and knowledge to improve your dogs behaviour. This reactive dog course provides a safe and controlled learning environment to practice your new skills in the presence of other dogs.

This 6 week course is fully supervised by two dog trainers. This course has  a maximum of four dogs in each class. Dogs that are severely dog aggressive , aggression toward to people,  or have redirected and caused injury to another person are not appropriate for this class. It may be more appropriate to book a private training session.

What to bring

We are located in the Station Road Creative Precinct and the address is:

Unit K

241 Station Road

Yeerongpilly. 

 We are directly opposite the road from World Gym which is on the same street as Yeerongpilly Train Station.

Parking is available onsite or on the street.

 

PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG TO THE FIRST CLASS.

 

But you MUST provide a current vaccination certificate or titer test certificate.

 

If it’s easier for you, you can email me or text me a photo of the proof of vaccination before the first class.

 

AFTER THE FIRST CLASS, here’s what you need to know, or what bring, to the rest of the classes: –

 

  • your dog!
  • fully enclosed shoes
  • a standard leash and collar
  • a 2-metre leash
  • a large snap lock bag full of your dog’s favourite treats cut into very small pieces
  • a mat for your dog

 

For the treats, we recommend you use chicken, turkey, ham, devon or cheese cut into really small pieces.  No “Smackos”, liver treats or dried biscuits.  Why?  Well, rewarding your dog for doing something really awesome with “Smackos”, liver treats or dried biscuits would be like rewarding a child with broccoli for learning the alphabet.  These snacks are boring! And not very motivating.

 

At FUR GET ME NOT we use positive reinforcement training techniques.  We are not into harming our dogs, trying to dominate them or treating them badly.

 

Do not bring or use retractable leads, ropes or chains. We also do not allow or condone the use of check, choke, prong, electric, citronella or sporn harnesses and collars.  You will be asked to leave the course if you bring these.
