Materials

Lesson Three will examine the issue of reactivity (to other dogs, people, or objects).  Specific exercises will be presented which are designed to help dogs feel safe and learn new and more appropriate responses.

We will also discuss the importance of managing both environmental stress and owner expectations.  Several video clips will be included in the lesson to illustrate particular techniques and help you develop your skills.

Lesson Three is divided into two topics:  The first video will cover the introduction and how to start working with a stuffed (toy) dog.  The second video will then introduce the Reactivity Reduction Exercise and other management issues.

Below is an outline of the lesson:
