A glimpse of training with us

Is your dog reactive with people, dogs or both?

Reactive Bootcamp 

Does your dog lunge, growl, bark, pull, aggress at other dogs or people or is your dog scared of people & dogs & you want to build positive associations.

Reactive Bootcamp 121 training consists of:

A over the phone assessment to talk to your trainer, arrange your sessions & talk you through the experience & go in to detail on your dogs behaviour. A behavioural form will be given to fill out before your first camp session & we advise all dogs to have had a recent health check before booking to make sure thats not the route cause.

Pre-training notes to practise at home that assist the training sent by email link or printed for you to collect.

A one to one preliminary session to go through the methodologies on camp (without your dogs) - we have a list of evening & weekend appointments for you to have your session on. Notes & a help video will be given.

A observational leadwork session with notes & a help video. These are set dates on Wednesday, Thursday evenings or a Sunday, you can pick which night works best for you.

One practical with our head trainer (daytime, evening or weekend appointments) to have stooge person or dog & teach your dog a coping mechanism, what is desirable & undesirable behaviour. What’s socially acceptable. Building positive associations with your dogs trigger. Some complex dogs may need an additional stop practical which are priced at a reduced rate of £60.

All of that training for £175 we take £75 non refundable deposit on booking. We can transfer one to ones as long as cancelled out of the 48 hour cancellation policy, if cancelled withiN 48 hours to rebook it will cost a discounted rate of £60 for a replacement session.

Bootcamp meet ups £10 per dog a 45 minute session at different locations with your head trainer Tracy to practise what you’ve learnt with a group of dogs/people.

Social walks £20 for 30 minutes- a one to one with any of our 3 Bootcamp trainers where they walk dogs alongside you whilst you practise your methodologies.

You can also practise with friends & their dogs 

if your dog is reactive at the TV, garden, house windows, car this isn’t covered so would need additional sessions. As these can fuel reactivity out of the home.


Here is a small handful of comments from our previous bootcamp owners feedback thats on the forum below these comments that theyve put about their dogs feedback:

"WOW Tracy you are a miracle worker. I have just had a meet up with Joan and Val. All the dogs were brilliant, but I have to say I was amazed to see the difference with Lucy in 1 week. We did stop with Oliver and we got within 2 ft and she appeared to want to go closer. Well done to Toby and Oliver they were really calm even when Lucy barked at them....."

"Sunday's training was excellent, Sasha has improved no end and we go on walks confidently now, passing other dogs all the time. Sasha now tends to be interested and shows signs of wanting to say"hello", instead of showing signs of aggression. So a big thank you Tracey !! ...."I 

have been doing the Touch training the past couple of days, it's great fun. Lucy has picked it up quickly and even tries to cheat. Next step to start trying it with her reactions, to try to distract and calm her....."

"Loved the session today, in fact loved the whole course! Thank you Tracy for giving us the knowledge we needed to help our dogs cope with life- it feels great to be able to understand them better. Keep in touch everyone...."

"So glad me and Ruby did this course. I feel calmer and ruby seems much happier. Learnt so much, would recommend to anyone. Thanks to Tracy and the team at the academy and to all the other dogs ( and their owners ) look forward to seeing you all again soon

"Loved the session today, in fact loved the whole course! Thank you Tracy for giving us the knowledge we needed to help our dogs cope with life- it feels great to be able to understand them better. Keep in touch everyone..."

"Hi Guys, Well done to everyone on the course it's been gret fun but most of all worth every penny as now I have the skills and knowledge to continue the work with Mischa on STOP and BAT.

It was lovely today being able to walk past other dogs without Mischa reacting.
Thanks so much to Tracey and her amazing Team at A4D Xxxxx...."

"The last few weeks have flown by, I have really enjoyed it and will miss our Sundays. Thanks so much to Tracy, Kiera and I have learnt such a lot in a short space of time. Looking forward to you seeing you all for more set ups.."

"Hi Tracy, I just want to say thank you, and how much I enjoyed the Reactive Boot Camp. The format was great, allowing us to just watch some weeks and being able to arrange 'set ups' to practice has been really good. Hopefully the 'set ups'will continue. Thanks again"

"Great "set up" tonight with Tommy. He did really well and we got within four or five metres in the end. His calming signals were really noticeable. It was fantastic and really shows he's learning what to do....."

"Thanks everyone for tonight. Tommy and Uwe both making a lot of progress!"

"I really enjoyed yesterday afternoon and seeing faces from the last bootcamp and meeting some new faces too"

Thank you Tracy for the comments about Kiera she is improving all the time and that's down to you and your team. She hasn't barked at the Meerkats on Coronation Street since she boarded with you either
