How an Online Training Course Helped Me Help My Reactive Dog

My goal with any dog I bring into our family is to give that dog the best, most enriching life possible. I’ve written a lot about living with and training my reactive rescue, Charlotte. As a result, I was offered the opportunity to check out Absolute Dog’s Summer of Transformation course, and I jumped at the invitation! The online classes were an intensive course for what they call “naughty but nice” dogs — such a great way to refer to reactive pups, don’t you think?

And I really liked that it was taught by two trainers: Tom Mitchell, who is also a veterinary behaviorist, and Lauren Langman, also a high-ranked dog agility competitor. Their styles blended well and enabled me to feel connected to classes even though they were originating in England.
