ADULT WORKSHOPS (6months & older)


This class is for dogs who bark, growl or lunge when on-leash and in the presence of other dogs. Training is done in a safe, environment to teach you and your dog the skills to manage and modify your dog’s perception & reaction to the presence of other dogs. Class size is limited to four dogs.

Week 1 is humans only, without dogs: this class will discuss thresholds, trigers & morivators. We will hold time for open discussion about your dog’s behaviors and begin the conversation about how we will be trying to help you modify these behaviors.

Week 2 you join class with your dog for 10 minutes of private time, rotating through all four dogs in class one at a time, while your classmates observe & you all learn from each other and let your dogs get comfortable with the space.

Weeks 3-6, you will be in class with your dog for the full class time, with the other students and their dogs as well! Your tuition for the in-person class also includes one in person one for an assessment.


This class is for dogs and humans who have completed Reactive Dog I or equivalent private lessons with PFPT. This class helps you incorpoate the tools learned in Reactive Dog I. We will go at your dogs pace to dog generalize to help with reactivity skills and continue to practice in a safe environment with added difficulty & distractions. Enrollment in Reactive Dog II class requires completion of Reactive Dog I or  Private consult first.
