You can help your reactive dog. Have you been reading books and searching for help but it’s not working for you? It might be that you are missing something, a missing piece in the training process. You could be going too fast and actually not helping your dog.
I have worked with dogs that are reactive to people, moving objects and sometimes just that odd toy you brought home. Every dog is different because they are their own individuals and each plan I set up to help them will be just a little different.
Dogs can become reactive to another dog or it might be an object. You may have noticed a behavior change in your dog after having an altercation. The best move you can make is hiring a professional dog trainer.
Emotions can be high and you may be embarrassed and feeling lost on what to do or why your dog is being reactive.
All of this is done with counter-conditioning and desensitization and it works. There is no need for aversive training tools. Choke, prong and shock collars can actually make things worse for your dog.
Why would you want to cause your dog pain? A good example is a dog that is reactive to other dogs and the dog knows that each time another dog is in view a snap comes from the leash and the metal tightens up. Now a dog in view means pain is coming and that is not helping. Threatening a dog with pain is not an answer but Positive Reinforcement is so much better.
