Training Opportunities with Seventh Heaven Pet Care

On-Leash Reactivity Classes

Does your dog bark, pull, or lunge when you encounter any of the following on your walks?

Other dogs, strollers, specific types of people, skateboarders or bikes?

Reactivity classes are designed to help you improve the ability of your dog to walk on leash around these triggers and be able to maintain a calm demeanor and low stress level. We will work with leash handling techniques as well as teaching you to read your dog closely to be able to reward the behavior that we want… calm dog who is sure that we have his or her back and that we give him/her the tools to manage their emotions in these situations. 

Classes are one-on-one for the time being and can either be held at your home, assuming that we can find a relatively distraction free outdoor space, or at my house in the front yard, where we have the room to increase and decrease distance to your dog’s comfort level. 

Once we have the coping behaviors installed, we will take it on the road and make sure that we can teach your dog to use the same tools in different environments. I have a few good places to go for this purpose!

Training Walks

Training Walks are designed for Owners who would like to have more training sessions for their dog and do not have the time to be present for all of these sessions. Your Trainer will pick your dog up for a walk and train skills for the first third of the scheduled time, go for a walk the second third of the scheduled time, and then play a training game for the last third of the scheduled time.

You will be given a report for each walk and emailed a homework assignment. When the set of skills that you and your Trainer have decided to focus on are installed, then you and the Trainer will meet to do a skills transfer session in which you will be coached as to how to cue your dog to get the behavior. This may include going to settings that you select and testing the training and your comfort level before moving on to another set of skills. 

This is also a great alternative to a training boot camp when you are on vacation! You can book an in-home Pet Sitter and then book a week of Training Walks during the day when you are away. When you come back, it will be to your dog who has new skills or improved behavior!

1 Hour Training Walk

This is the minimum length for time for a Training Walk and a good Learning to play ratio!
$ 45 Per Session
  • 15 Minute Skill Training at the Beginning of the Walk.
