Growl Class is a gentle, effective month-long series offered periodically for shy, nervous, bossy, possessive, territorial, dominant, protective, reactive or aggressive dogs.
For one week or more prior to your first class, or if you find his good behavior slipping for any reason (busy schedule, sabotage from friends or family, stressful time) it is helpful to hand feed your dog for doing simple obedience tricks or new fun skills like fetch or roll over.
Dole out a few pieces at a time of high-quality dry or specialty dog food (we are feeding our own dogs Orijen, Acana, Fromm and a few others, mostly grain-free) for paying attention to you in a polite way, or for learning or practicing his tricks, throughout the day & evening.
Give him his full ration of food without using the dog food bowl.
If you are limited in time at home due to your work hours or other responsibilities, do this just for the evening meal or whenever works for you.
This also helps a new dog bond to you faster. Dole it out a piece at a time or a handful at a time for doing useful tricks and demonstrating better manners.
