Has your dog's on-leash growling, barking, and lunging towards other dogs begun stressing you out? Do you want to understand their behavior better and get some immediate relief? If so, then this is the workshop for you!

The Human Side of Dog Reactivity is an interactive humans ONLY class. This class is designed to provide you with the essential information needed to effectively manage your dog on-leash around other dogs.

You will learn the following:

• Why does my dog growl, bark, and lunge at other dogs on-leash?
• What does my dog's body language mean?
• How can I get my dog to pay attention to me on walks?
• How can I prevent my dog from going off on other dogs so I can enjoy my walks again?
•Prevention techniques via a live demo.

This workshop consists of one (2) hour humans-only session and is limited to six participants.

Once you have registered, you may attend the workshop with your family members or anyone that regularly interacts with your dog.


For more information or to be placed on a waiting list for upcoming workshops, please email trainer@mdspca.org or call 410-235-8826, ext. 151.

Once you have completed the workshop, you will be given priority access to enroll in our outdoor reactive rover group class. You will also be given a $50 off coupon code that you can apply when registering for the live group class.
