You’ve practiced your training skills in the Foundations and Skill Building classes, now it’s time for a challenge! Our one-of-a-kind Reactive Rover: Open Air class will give you a chance to practice your dog’s training in an outdoor group class setting.
We help provide safe opportunities for you and your dog to explore different neighborhoods and parks around Portland, with a supportive group of like-minded students. Your dog may also practice closer-distance skills, potentially on-leash greetings, depending on your dog’s skill levels and readiness.
Our professional trainers lead the walks, run training exercises, give you feedback on your training, while also keeping an eye out for dogs in the environment. The locations change each of the four weeks to keep things interesting and fun for you and your dog.
