Event Series Event Series: Reactive Dog Clinic

Reactive Dog Clinic

March 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

- $150


Work with your dog to gain confidence in social interactions


Join us for this opportunity to work with others who also own reactive dogs, to gain confidence, calm, and capability. Teach your dog (and yourself) the self-confidence and the skills needed to relax, focus, and enjoy being around others – people, dogs, and other animals. The first meeting of each session is a humans-only orientation.

Pre-requisite: Participants must be able to keep physical control of their dog. We reserve the right to restrict any dog’s participation for any reason, for the safety of other dogs and participants. Evidence of current vaccinations required.

Bring: Collar, harness with chest-pull D-ring, treat bag, treats your dog loves, good stout leash (recommend waist belt), and water. Participants will need to bring printed evidence of current vaccinations, a signed Waiver, and a completed  Conflict History Questionnaire.

Instructor: Mark Helpenstell KPA-DTP has been training animals for 50+ years, working with hunting/retrieving dogs, stock dogs, horses, donkeys, goats, and other pets. He is an advocate of Positive Reinforcement Training, working with dogs, donkeys, mules, and cats. Mark has completed multiple Animal Behavior Certification and other courses. Mark got involved in donkey and mule rescue, and has been Clicker Training to rescue/recover frightened, confused and difficult animals. Visit the Facebook page: “Come on, Let’s Train.”
