Cranky Canine is a one-of-a-kind, specialized group program for dogs who are fearful, defensive, or offensive toward other dogs while on leash. They often make embarrassing displays including barking and lunging at other dogs.
Some dogs experience leash-reactivity but are perfectly social off-leash. That too, is normal.
Reactive dogs are generally the most fantastic dogs: loving, affectionate, smart, and sweet. We always say that they’re 95% perfect but this 5% is heavy…
We know how it feels to have a reactive dog - every single team member here at The TCCE has (or has had) a reactive dog. We’ve lived through it and we’ve modified it too! (And we’ve lived to tell the tale, so that should make you feel better!)
This program is a combination of online learning, private in-school lessons, and group classes (for dog-reactivity only). Students are then added to a closed Facebook group for lifelong support and opportunities for practice.
We will change your dog’s emotional responses to dogs while on leash, teach alternate behaviours, promote relaxation and focus, and build the bond rather than breaking it down. We use science-based methods and force-free techniques, avoiding the use of punishment, which suppresses aggression and creates a ticking time bomb. You'll walk away with your dignity AND your relationship.
We can’t wait to help you through this.
