Snarky Dog: This
class is for dogs who act inappropriately in public. They may react to people, dogs or
distractions in general. There can be
many different reasons why a dog acts inappropriately, including genetics, lack
of positive early socialization, frustration, unintentional reinforcement of
inappropriate behavior, poor communication skills, etc. Whatever the cause, it can be said that the
dog simply has not learned what IS appropriate.
The goal of the Snarky Dog Class is to help you better read your dog to
prevent the inappropriate behavior, and to teach and encourage your dog to do other,
more suitable behaviors for social settings. Only 4-5 dogs at a time are accepted to the Snarky Dog class, locations , may vary and may be outdoors.
