After years of experience working with countless clients and their reactive dogs, and with Ben, her own aggressive dog, award-winning author Emma Parsons has found a better way to help even more owners and their dogs: by carefully orchestrating controlled exposures to triggers in a class setting. Teaching the Reactive Dog Class presents Emma’s hard-won techniques and format for safely and successfully teaching dogs that are reactive toward people and/or other dogs.
