Reactive Dog Classes

Having a reactive dog does not mean that you have to hide or keep your dog secluded for the rest of its’ life. In fact, it is important to know that you and your dog are not alone. Many people are worried about how their dog behaves. DOGSmart Training offers classes to help people understand the problematic behaviour of their dog, why it might be happening, and what to do to reduce or eliminate the behaviour. As each dog’s situation is different, please call us to determine your dog’s needs and appropriate next steps.

Important Note: A private consultation is required before you can join any reactive classes. Due to the specialized nature of reactive classes, we are unable to offer “make-up” classes for any classes that you miss. One-week notice prior to the date of the first class is required for cancellations or refunds. Dates and times of classes are subject to change. Visit our website or give us a call for more information as well as to find out the dates and times classes are offered. Please equip your dog with a flat buckle collar, front clip harness, or head-halter only for all classes. All other types of collars including pinch, choke, martingale and shock collars, as well as retractable-leashes are not permitted.

Private Consultations

Private consultations are available, day or evening, for those wishing to work one-on-one with a trainer. We offer private sessions at our Ontario Street location, in your home, or at a location within the Vancouver area that is suitable for your specific situation. Phone DOGSmart Training at 604-267-9500 for further information.
