“Leash Demons” – A BBF Problem Busters Workshop for Reactive Dogs

Does your dog bark and lunge “aggressively” at other dogs or people while on leash? Are you embarrassed or scared by your dog’s behavior and not sure what to do in those situations?

Then you and your dog might be perfect candidates for our “Leash Demons” Problem Busters Workshop!

During the workshop we will discuss what is driving your dog’s behavior, what the behavior really means, and why specific techniques work or don’t work.

You will learn and practice methods from the ground up – starting with the very basics and building on them step-by-step. Will we use video to analyze technique at all stages and you will be able to see for the very first time exactly how your behavior can influence your dog. On the final day, you will be applying the techniques with your dog in the real world.

Problem Buster workshops are limited to six dogs meaning that each attendee receives all the personalized attention they need.

Problem Buster workshops are not for everyone – only those who are truly committed to overcoming their dog’s behavior problems should attend.

To find out if you and your dog are good candidates for a Problem Buster workshop, a Behavior Evaluation (or Private Lesson) is required. Behavior Evaluation fees will be credited back to you when you sign up for a workshop.

Leash Demons Schedule

Friday, July 28: 8am – 4pm
Check-in, introductions, introduce techniques, practice without dogs, video analysis, practice with skilled dogs, more video analysis, Q & A, and review of exercises to practice that evening.

Saturday, July 29: 8am – 4pm
Review, practice with your own dogs, video analysis, new concepts, how to apply in real world, contingency plans, Q & A, and review of exercises to practice that evening.

Sunday, July 30: 8am – 3pm
Real world practice, video analysis, review, Q & A, individualized training plans.

Missing any portion of the workshop will result in you being left behind so please plan to attend the entire three days.

Each day is divided into a morning session and an afternoon session with a one hour lunch break. Coffee and drinks will be provided, but you will need to make your own lunch arrangements.

You will not bring your dog on Friday – instead we will provide dogs that have already learned the skills so that you can focus on your own technique. On Saturday and Sunday mornings you will bring your dogs and immediately begin practicing the skills learned on the previous day.

Working with the dogs will typically happen during the morning sessions to avoid the afternoon heat. During afternoon sessions we will be working indoors without the dogs.

You may drop your dog off at home during lunch or crate trained dogs can be crated in the room with us. We have extra large metal crates with optional covers, or you may bring your own.
