Life with a reactive dog, stranger danger. With special guest @thedackpack (#18)

We talked all about what life is like owning a dog reactive dog in Episode 16. In this episode we explore what life is like when living with a dog that can be reactive to people.

Jess @thedackpack is dog mom to Luna and Stella, a shelter volunteer and a canine behavior counselor in training. She opens up and shares what her day to day looks like living with Luna who can be reactive to people.

If your dog can be reactive to people, this episode is a must listen!

It’s important to realize that dogs who can be reactive are most likely afraid of the stimulus and that is why they are reacting in an unwanted manner. By using management and positive reinforcement training you can get to the root emotional response that is causing the unwanted over reactions.

I offer in person training as well as remote consultations to help you work through your dogs reactivity. If you need help finding help a qualified trainer in your area, please send me a DM, @agoodfeeling_inco

Life with a reactive dog, with special guest @arielthebrindle (#16)

Do you live with a reactive dog? What is your dog reactive too?

My special guest is dog mom to a reactive dog and we talk about what life is like and how she has been using positive reinforcement training to change her dogs behavior.

By using a high value reward to pair with your dogs triggers you will be able to change your dogs emotional response to the trigger. You’ll know you are on the right track when your dogs body language start to loosen and they are able to turn back to you in anticipation of a reward. By changing your dogs emotional response you will also get rid of the unwanted barking, lunging, pulling behavior.

If you have a reactive dog and need help with training please reach out. I am happy to work with you remotely or connect you with a qualified trainer in your area!

Remember to do your research when you are looking for a trainer. Trainers should be transparent about what will happen to your dog if they get it right and what will happen if they get it wrong. There is no need to use harsh tools such as pinch collars or shock (e) collars.

This is the organization that I am certified through. CCPDT
