    We designed this class to help you help your dog by managing thresholds and environments, as well as help you understand and give you tools to help your dog learn how to cope with the outside world so that you can more comfortably walk your dog successfully on leash.  It is our goal to help you understand why your dog behaves this way and coach you through how to help him/her be more successful when out and about.  Our large facility and visual barriers allows us to provide an environment that your sensitive dog can feel safe and learn in, while we guide you through exercises that will promote alternative behaviors to their reactivity or avoidance – ultimately helping them get over their reactivity or avoidance!

    Because this is a class full of sensitive dogs and to be sure that everyone is absolutely safe in the rare instance a leash is dropped, your dog will be required to be muzzled while entering and exiting the building.  However, if your dog has never been muzzled before, we will be sure to email you muzzle training instructions so that your pup is nice and comfortable in a muzzle before you start class. 

    For those of you uncomfortable with the idea of muzzling your dog, here is a great article to read by the great Nan Arthur:


    In choosing a muzzle for your dog, we suggest Basket Muzzles, which are very comfortable for the dogs, allowing them to pant, drink water, and take treats.  Mesh or cloth muzzles that clamp the mouth shut, are used typically in emergency situations for short term muzzling and will not allow your dog to pant, drink water, or take treats.  Although your dog will only be required to wear a muzzle while entering and exiting the building, being muzzled trained is a great thing to teach your dog and gives you much more freedom to interact with other dogs and people as it will ensure there will be no injury if contact with other beings happens.  As well, if you need help finding and fitting a muzzle, we do sell muzzles at the Noble Beast Dog Training & Education Center (4335 Vine Street, Denver, CO  80216), as well as treats, treat pouches, and front clip harnesses – all of which we require for class (except the front clip harness – which is highly recommended).

    We cap this class at a 4 dog max.
