Fear & Aggression 101

For Humans Only - No Dogs

Is your dog a Feisty Fido? This class is for dog owners in the Seattle area who have dogs that aggressively growl, bark, or lunge at other dogs on leash. Whether your dog is frustrated, fearful, or angry, this class will help you manage and train your dog. Fear & Aggression 101 is a prerequisite for the first Growly Dog Class.

Note: This lecture is for humans only, please leave your dog at home.

You will learn the basics of clicker training, why dogs exhibit aggression and the tools we use (and don’t use) to rehabilitate aggression and fear in dogs. You will learn practical leash handling skills that can greatly reduce dog reactivity. You will need this skill to be successful in the Growly Dog class. Two people from the same household can attend per registered dog.

This class includes a FREE book, Behavior Adjustment Training 2.0: New Practical Techniques for Fear, Frustration, and Aggression in Dogs, ($24.95 value), a free dog training clicker, a free instant download of our 150+ page dog training manual. You can also purchase a hard copy of the book at the training center in Ballard.
