Leash reactivity is when your dog displays an overreaction to a normal stimuli in the environment, like another dog, squirrel, or even skateboarder.
It’s frustrating for you as owner because chances are you left your house to go on a peaceful walk with your dog, but your dog lunging and bark is anything but peaceful.
Despite how it feels in the moment, it’s actually frustrating for your dog too. Dogs that are reacting are having big feelings, which is hard on them.
In this presentation, we’ll cover the basic information on reactivity so you understand what it is, what to look for, and how to prevent it.
Sometimes, though, it’s unavoidable, which is why we’ll discuss three specific skills and strategies for both manging and changing your dog’s barking and lunging behaviors to set you up for longterm success.
3 main key takeaways:
* Strategies for management to help you feel empowered to both prevent reactions and to recover more quickly from reactions
* Skills and games for training to change your dog’s underlying emotional response to decrease reactivity
* Understand the importance of tracking dog training data to objectively see the process and improvements to make adjustments if necessary
