We all know our reactive dogs are big softies at heart and at home behind closed doors where the world cant set our dogs off into a dramatic response. We all know the feeling of having to avoid high footpath traffic times for walks! or fining a pet sitter that feels safe enough to look past the scary bark, but wouldn't it be nice to let your dog see the world as a less stressful place? perhaps take them on a family picnic? or even just down your usual walking track at a decent time? Reactivity does not make your dog a bad dog. Sometime they just need the right guidance to understand what they are feeling and how to communicate that differently. When a dog is reactive it is important to remember that they are in a conflicted emotional state of high arousal and not reacting badly by conscious decision. Because this behaviour is usually fear and anxiety based, punishment for this behaviour will only heighten anxiety and worsen the problem. As an owner of a reactive dog you need to consider why our dog is feeling this way and how to help them through it. We need to be aware of what type of reactivity our dogs may have and find ways help them. Reactivity can be such a wide array of issues such as leash reactivity, barrier frustration, resource guarding, over or under socialisation, fear, anxiety and so much more.
