Growly Hounds Club
Bi-Weekly Meet Up For Reactive Canines
Do you have a dog that lunges and barks at every dog or every person in sight? Are you tired of being accosted by off leash dogs and their humans who don't seem to understand your dog's need for space? Do you get frustrated when strangers reach out to pet your fearful dog without asking, then make you feel bad or embarrassed when your dog reacts by slinking away or barking?
At Growly Hounds Club, you will meet up with other reactive dog owners in a controlled and safe setting under the supervision of two professional dog trainers at all times. One visit entitles you to one hour sessions with your very own professional dog trainer by your side. Work on your handling skills and learn how to safely manage and modify your dog's behaviour so you and your dog can gain the confidence you need.
