The reactive dog


Can you relate to any of the below statements?

  • I walk my dog early morning or late at night
  • He goes nuts at the sight of another dog
  • I have a lead to his flat collar and another to his harness
  • People stare at me or give me nasty looks
  • People cross over when they see us coming
  • I have to check out the area first before I get him out of the car
  • He is a lovely dog in the house just nuts outside
  • He has pulled me over in the past
  • I can’t control him
  • I’m thinking about rehoming him

Angry, upset, frightened, scared of strangers, scared of dogs. This is how you feel never mind the dog!

Many things can cause reactivity in a dog some of which are fixable some of which are manageable and occasionally, unfortunately some aren’t or will ever be.


If you feel up to the challenge and are willing to commit to a new way of being with your dog then contact me and I will work with you to:

  1. Identify the triggers
  2. Lead management
  3. Rewarding at the right time
  4. Alternative behaviours
  5. Building tolerance
  6. Accepting change
  7. New regimes
  8. Importance of body language
  9. Engagement
  10. Managing within the environment

I train people to help dogs, to keep the rescue kennels empty and build a bond and a better understanding between dog and owners
