Do you have a reactive dog?

A dog which barks at people, other dogs or anything which moves?

This course is designed for dogs who are frustrated when out, or mildy fearful of other dogs or triggers which therefore makes them bark, pull and lunge.

The course provides a safe and controlled environment with instruction from a qualified behaviourist to guide you and your dog through the training to help you work towards changing your dogs behaviour.

Reactive dog '

''Lucy's encouragement and coaching has been invaluable; particularly on the Rowdy Rovers course, in which my reactive dog and I have made great progress. I'd thoroughly recommend her and the teaching methods she uses. They really work''

Rowdy rover

''I have just finished a six weeks rowdy rovers class with my dog Elsie. We have learnt a lot in the six weeks and feel very positive going forward. Lucy is very knowledgeable about what she does, very friendly and easy to get on with. She quite obviously loves her job. Thank you Lucy and Les''

aggressive dog training

"A huge thank you to you, Lucy, it has been great working with yourself, Les & of course, Rosa over the past few weeks. As you know, we have seen a handful of different trainers over the last 2 years since we adopted Roxie, and I have to say that I have never felt so at ease during a training class as I have in your sessions. Your methods are easy to follow, practical, and these practices speak for themselves with all the dogs in the class making visible improvements. As I know Roxie's reactivity training will be ongoing probably for the rest of her life, I think it's good for her to have a little nudge out of her comfort zone under the excellent controlled conditions you provided in class, she can then learn how to cope in these situations if we come across them in the real world. We hope to see you soon!  Thank you again, from Emily & Roxie"
