    • We both loved the way Sheila Harper presented herself - not to 'tell' or 'advise' us on what to believe or not (like many trainers do in a sometimes intimidating manner) but to allow us to think...
    • It was superbly facilitated and directed with dog handling, case studies, and in-depth perspective being important.
    • Sheila is not into "Sit", "Down", "Stay". The concentration is on having a positive and gentle development with your dog - you are a team - so that you can both enjoy...
    • I have been to presentations before where your attention starts to wander and where you can’t wait for the course to end. I was completely focused on this course for the whole 2 days; there was...

    • “I soon realised that my inexperience really didn’t matter, as what we had come to learn about was new to everyone. We all had a similar motivation for doing the course. To do the best...

    Reactive Dogs - March 18

    Seminar : Reactive Dogs - March 18

    Venue : West Sussex

    Date : Spring 2018

    Cost : £125.00


    This seminar provides an insight into working with reactive dogs, this course examines what is meant by reactivity and the reasons for this kind of behaviour. Often there is a fine line for dogs when it comes to reactivity, and it can happen in a split second. It's of the utmost importance to recognise the build-up and to anticipate before the dog gets to the stage where he is driven to exhibit his level of discomfort. This is frequently shown by a display of undesired behaviours such as aggression, simply because of the situation the dog finds himself in.

    • What are reactive dogs?
    • Identification of symptoms, triggers and patterns of behaviour
    • The use of management and prevention along with working with tools that will help put dogs and owners in a better position to learn and react appropriately.
    • Suggestions to improve relationships and trust, building skills (dog and owner) and working
    through challenges.

    Analysis of video material will guide you through the process of observation, handling and management.

    This course provides a foundation for future practical courses.
