Calm Your Canine class is designed to help dogs who overreact to other dogs by excessively staring, barking, lunging, growling and/or snarling.

Emma Parsons, KPA-CTP, CDBC, teaches an easy-to-follow "training recipe" format from her book, Click to Calm. This 8 week class will focus on how to:

  • Desensitize your dog to approaching strange dogs.
  • Train a dog to perform canine calming signals, instead of aggressive displays, on cue.
  • Train a dog to turn and give eye contact whenever another dog approaches, to avoid leash tightening.
  • Use your own body language when under stress as a cue for your dog to remain calm.
  • Grab your dog's collar even when upset or aroused, without snapping from the dog.
  • And many more creative and effective means of managing and modifying behavior through clicker training.

Class is limited to 4 dogs total. The cost of the class is $250 for 8 weeks and includes a ‘Blackdog’ head collar or ‘Easy Walk’ harness.
