Reactivity Defined: I will define another category of Reactive Dogs. In the past, I have written about dogs who are very social and react because they are “Persistent Players” and love to play with dogs. Our canine friends have different reasons for reacting at the sight of another dog. Once you are able to identify “why” your dog is acting this way, then we can put a training plan in place. For this Blog, I am defining “Persistent Sniffers” These dogs primarily investigate their environments using their nose, as seen by their heads to the ground often. They are...
I continually see the need for more education in cases of dog aggression towards humans. For some reason, when a dog growls at a human, the human’s response is to yell, hold them down or force it into confinement. Many clients admit this scolding has caused an increase in stress when the dog is near unfamiliar people.
Modern trainers use clickers to train their dogs because it aids in the animals understanding of what is rewardable. The animal quickly learns that when it offers the behavior again, it will be rewarded. This positive reinforcement approach will often cause an immediate “wow” moment for both handler and animal.
The clicker is a small hand-held gadget that emits a sound when you press it. The sound the clicker makes is a signal to your dog that the behavior it just offered is rewardable. This “click” is always followed by a food reward. Think: Click and Treat! Note, the clicker is NOT for getting attention.
As President of Canine Behavior Counseling I am dedicated to helping dog owners understand their dogs responses better. Dogs that become overly aroused, fearful, or aggressive are those that I can help using a Positive Approach. My training programs encompass two comprehensive online training classes, and personalized one-to-one counseling. I seek to achieve a balanced state of mind and a healthy relationship between the dog and its owners. It is important for dog owners to understand their dogs emotional sensitivities and sociability as behaviors are a response to how the dog feels. By providing the proper information and training, the relationship between dog and owner will be a happy and balanced one.
