Specially designed to train a dog not to bark, growl, lunge or “lose it” on walks.
"Scylla is finishing up Agility 2 and has been the star of the class. Your Growl classes have made her into a whole new dog!!"
"The course was perfect for my big guy. The personal attention was exactly what he needed."
"I was afraid that my “Jekyll and Hyde" dog would be too reactive to other dogs to be able to participate. She was great in class, thanks mainly, I believe, to the well thought out, strategic arrangement."
"Ashley and I can't thank you enough for everything you helped us learn in Reform School! Walk time used to be scary and fraught because Ashley would be barking at other animals and pulling on the leash. But would you believe it, now we're relaxed and actually having FUN!!! I was nervous about doing a training class online - especially one about how not to freak out around other dogs - but it actually worked out fantastic. I will be recommending Wonder Dog to everyone I know!"
"My favorite part of Growl Class was seeing Gus’ improvement outside of the class. It's like a little light bulb goes off in his head and he says "oh I’ve got this." We can take Gus for walks through the neighborhood. He knows we have his back. When he sees a dog, he looks at us. Seeing a dog means look at my human and get a treat. We will never be able to walk him without constantly surveying the streets for possible triggers, but once we see the trigger, we are prepared on our end so he has a positive response not a negative one. The class gives you the tools to help your dog navigate his scary perceptions of his environment. It will give you more control in a difficult situation where so much depends on how your dog responds. Having a reactive dog does not mean you need to be a shut in. Having a reactive dog that has gone through the Growl Class gives you the chance to experience life with your dog. Months after Gus completed class, I was surprised at how much he has retained. Only once a month we may practice the “Call your dog!” cue, and he responds each time. Gus is a slow moving dog, so any cue to get him to run impresses me. Everyone was always so encouraging with Gus and the other dogs in the class. If one person had a question C.C. would answer it for all to hear. Gus enjoyed going to class and did not stress during the car ride to the facility. You helped a scared/nervous dog become a more confident dog. You set Gus up for success. That is what great dog training is: setting the dog up for success."

HOW DO WE GET SUCH AMAZING RESULTS?
Trainer magic? Nope. Over many years working with these behaviors we’ve crafted incredible tools that you can put to use right away for real life changes:
Reform School does more than train a dog not to bark. It's for dogs who lack self control. Your dog may unable to settle down or even lunging, barking, or growling when frustrated seeing other dogs or people. We will show you how to teach your dog to encounter and calmly walk by other dogs or people without these problem behaviors.
Includes foundation & focus skills training, advanced leash handling, management strategies, classical conditioning, and counter-conditioning behavior modification exercises.
