When dogs growl at other dogs, lunge at people and bark at everything it’s often mislabeled as “aggression.” But behavior that looks like aggression is often fear-based and should be treated as such. The term for this is reactivity.
This book helps dog owners and trainers to understand the reactive dog and help him change for the better. The process is easy to grasp, and once the changes begin to take shape, owners become so encouraged that improving their dog’s behavior suddenly becomes fun and exciting!
If your dog loses control when other dogs are nearby, or can’t focus on you in public places, or lunges and pulls any time he sees certain types of people, this book has a lot to offer.
All training methods and classroom techniques are non-force and based on developing a ‘working relationship’ with your dog.
