Reactive Dogs: Recognizing, Managing & Improving
Saturday, April 22 @ 1:00-3:00 pm

Is your dog reactive in certain situations?  Or perhaps on leash?  This workshop, presented by Michael Nichols, the brains behind The Dog Guy, will help you determine the reason behind your dog’s behavior and what you can do to help.  Michael will discuss the different types of reactivity, talk about appropriate methods to manage & improve their responses and walk through the CARE method, including real life applications of this concept.  Reactivity in dogs can be a very challenging & frustrating issue, but we are here to help!

This class is FREE, but registration is required.  To reserve your seat, register here!  Questions?  Contact Zakia at outreach@whatcomhumane.org or call 360-733-2080 x3116.
