Reactive Rover classes are progression classes from one-to-one training both at the centre or for clients whom we have assisted in their own homes with Miranda or Sarah. They can also be great for dogs (or handlers) who find it hard to concentrate in normal obedience classes. If you have not had a previous 121 with Miranda or Sarah, please click here to book before registering for this course.

Classes are kept small, normally between 4 and 6 people. Every dog and handler has a large personal training space of their own. Designed to allow dogs who are overly fearful, overly aroused or who can potentially be reactive to gain confidence and manners around other dogs and people, but in an environment designed to set them and their handlers up for success.

The goals of the class are to teach daily management skills, obedience, build trust between the handler and their dog and teach methods to reduce reactivity.
