About

If you dread going for walks with your dog because he or she lunges, barks, and pulls every time they see another dog or person, then this course was made for you

My Name is Tyler Muto, and I am a dog trainer from Buffalo, NY who specializes in helping families overcome challenging behaviors with their dogs. I am very excited to bring you this course on leash reactivity as it is one of the most common behavior problems that I receive calls about.

This course will be tackling the specific issue of leash reactivity, which should be distinguished from dog-aggression in general. However, many of the principals and theories that we will be covering relate to aggression in general and thus the information contained within this course will be valuable to anyone who works regularly with dogs.

Throughout the 10 modules of the course we will be taking a very systematic approach to managing reactive behavior. When designing this course it was very important to me that we didn't just give quick fixes, but rather that each dog/handler team develop the skills, techniques, and understanding necessary to achieve lasting results. The course begins with a variety of foundation exercises which will help both the dog's and humans get comfortable with the various mechanics and skills that will be required of them later in the course. Then we will move into a theory portion of the course, which will help each student to better understand the motivation underlying their dogs' behavior, and how to work with those motivations rather than against them. Lastly, in the last half of the course we will be successively adding additional tools and skills to our practice until each team finds the approach that will work best for them.

TAREGET AUDIENCE

The course focuses on reactive dogs, but the information within can be applied to all dogs in order to create a conflict-free, loose leash walking experience. Professional dog trainers who would like to implement new strategies with their more difficult client dogs will also benefit.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS
