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: First night of class is a Lecture only! No dogs first night of class, and it is critically important that you attend the lecture!

Control Unleashed® (CU), developed by Leslie McDevitt ,and Behavioral Advancement Training (BAT) rehabilitate and prevent dog reactivity. This 16 week class will examine the function of growling, lunging, or fleeing behaviors and help the dogs learn socially acceptable behaviors that serve the same function. CU and BAT build confidence by teaching dogs how to control their environment with little interference from us. CU and BAT will empower you and your dog as you learn how to understand your dog while your dog learns to safely interact with people and other dogs. You will learn:

  • How to encourage or shape a "replacement behavior" that provides your dog with the same function as the unwanted behavior.
  • Why it's important to keep your dog calm in the presence of a trigger while teaching him to make good choices.
  • Practical ways to keep your dog from being pushed into a reactive state in and around your home and on walks.

The first night of class will be lecture only, please do not bring dogs to class.

Please bring your dog to class on a soft buckle collar or front clip harness, a six foot leather or nylon leash. No retractable or chain leashes allowed. No prong/pinch collars allowed. Bring 2-3 quart bags of soft, small, easily eaten treats such as hot dogs, cheese or chicken. Bring an inexpensive, portable mat. 

  • You will need a 15 – 20 ft. long line and a front attached harness for the later portion of the class.  Both long lines and harnesses can be purchased at AnnaBelle’s. Training clients receive 15% discount off all leashes.

This 8 week class is fantastic for improving your dog’s level of impulse control by teaching your dog to relax when something stimulating, unpredictable, or unexpected occurs. When your dog understands the basic exercise and is able to remain relaxed in response to each of the distractions listed in the individual sections, the exercise can then be adapted for use during many other situations such as front door greetings, exposure to stimulating events, relaxing around other dogs, etc.

We will be using Dr. Karen Overall’s Relaxation Protocol
