Join us for an in-depth series of seminars on canine behavior. This seminar is taught by local, reward-based trainer Cindy Peacock, KPA-CDT, CPDT-KA. Does your dog choose fight over flight? Does your dog cower when people approach? This workshop is to help you better understand your dog’s behavior and give you the skills to better manage it. While it can present in many forms, reactivity is a common behavior issue. Simply put, reactivity can be defined as an overreaction to external stimuli. Dogs may be reactive to people, dogs, other animals, noises, motion, or any combination of the above. Reactive dogs may be fearful, frustrated, and aggressive or over excited.
