Growl Class is our newest class. These classes are designed for dogs with aggression/reactivity to other dogs. The Growl Class will actually be a series of classes that you will need to be enrolled in and committed too.

We realize that there are very few social opportunities in real life to help resolve dog reactivity. Our goal is to set up and classically condition the dogs, and to rehabilitate and re-socailize them so they can once again enjoy the company of other dogs.

Please sign up and an email will be sent for what to bring, when & where to meet.

NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME!!
