Reactive Dog Support Group

Do You Love a Reactive Dog?

If you answered yes, then we invite you to join our online Reactive Dog Support Group for 2023 which meets monthly in our Zoom Room from February through November.

Our Support Group will help you learn about your special dog as well as give you a chance to connect with other reactive dog owners, share your challenges and successes, and hear the stories of other participants.

At each 90-minute session, participants are encouraged to share their struggles and challenges and get support from other members. Resources are provided and “homework” assignments given to help reinforce your knowledge of reactive dog behavior and needs as well as how to provide loving care for them.

Special guests also join us throughout the year to answer your questions and provide additional tips and ideas. Each Support Group is limited to 15 people.
