Growl Class – Workshop demo for reactive dogs
What the course looked at:
Keeping your dog well-socialised to other dogs is not so easy, and often this area of their socialisation deteriorates the most rapidly. At some point most dogs will get into at least one fight with another dog. Sadly, this often marks the beginning of the end when it comes to their socialisation with other dogs. The owners want to avoid future fights so they avoid future opportunities to socialise. The dogs socialisation deteriorates further and the likelihood of them fighting when they see another dog increases.
Resolving this problem in the course of everyday life is very difficult. Dr. Dunbar demonstrates how to use a Growl Class to classically condition dogs and rehabilitate and re-socialise them to once again enjoy the company of other dogs.
