Amanda Ferris

RESCUE Dog TrainingAmanda Ferris, of R.E.S.C.U.E. Dog Training, is a protege of Carol Hein-Creger of the Canine Training Center and has been training with her for two years. Amanda fell in love with pit bulls not long after high school and spent the next 15 years learning all she could about dog body language and canine communication. Amanda's love of pit bulls has turned her into a bully breed advocate, and now she wants to showcase how many pit bulls are simply lovers of people, especially children. She adopted Luna, who was a fighting dog, two years ago and has turned into an absolute lover of people and lights up with excitement whenever she interacts with children. Amanda's mission is to help people with rescued dogs, even those with challenging pasts, learn how to rehabilitate their pets to live in a family home through positive reinforcement and patience. She says that there is no better feeling than the joy a family experiences when they begin to see the improvement in their dog's behavior and learn that their dog can live in harmony with their family.

R.E.S.C.U.E. Reactive. Education. Support. Confidence.  Understanding. Energy. 

This class is for dogs that react to people and other dogs by barking, lunging, shutting down and are distressed. Having a dog that is on constant alert and anxious is hard on the owners and the dog. In this class, we will focus on better understanding of your dog's reactivity, how to communication with your dog and we will teach coping skills and desensitizing your dog with positive reinforcement.

Class does not address resource guarding and may not be suitable if that is your main problem.

PLEASE NOTE: NO DOGS FIRST CLASS! And, it is critically important that you attend the first night of class!
