Reactive Dog Private Workshop Series

Take your dog from reactive to responsive

Barking, pulling, growling, lunging—does this sound like your dog when they react to other dogs or people? This new workshop series will help you work with your dog through these issues with a program tailored to you, your dog, and your family.

You will work directly with a Certified Canine Behaviour Consultant and an assistant in multiple sessions to help you gain skills to ensure the best outcome for you and your dog. A neutral dog (unique to this program) will be provided to assist you and your dog with out-and-about real-life situations and to practice the skills you learn.

Working with Tracy through the Reactive Dog Workshop has been amazing. She gave me the skills and confidence needed to continue working and thriving with my reactive dog. She did an amazing job explaining the training and theory behind what she was teaching me. Working with Tracy has been life-changing for both my dog and myself, and I highly recommend this program for anyone having issues with reactivity in their dogs.
