Is your dog insecure or shy when meeting new people and potential dog friends? Does your dog seem nervous about exploring new environments? Wallflowers will benefit both of you! We train in a safe, low-stress environment to help your dog build confidence and gain new skills. Each week will include a mix of training to help them overcome their fears, confidence building activities, and discussion on key aspects of life with a worried dog. If your goal is to enhance the quality of your dog’s life, look no further- we’re here to help!
This class is not suitable for dogs who demonstrate reactivity or aggression toward people. If your dog is reactive or aggressive toward people, we are available to support you in a private behavior consultation. You may schedule a behavior consultation through our website (look under the “Training Services” tab) or by calling 303-442-4030 ext. 368.
For the first night of class, each dog will be assigned a private 10 minute time slot to get to know the instructor and explore the room without the other participants present. This will also give you a brief opportunity to talk to the instructor about your dog’s specific needs. Your instructor will reach out prior to the first night of class to notify you of your time slot.
A martingale collar is included in your registration. Martingales are great for worried dogs because they are specially designed to prevent your dog from escaping if they get startled.
