A Day of Reactivity Training

Updated: Mar 11, 2022

Today, like most of my days, was spent helping dogs that struggle to be around other dogs, people, and vehicles.

I had 3 dogs today all over Tyne and Wear!

The first was Oscar the Retriever/Poodle/Border Collie. We’ve worked with Oscar for a couple of months now and today we moved him to a difficult area to work in! For this session, we went to Hadrians Wall Walk in Newburn where there were plenty of dogs, people, and vehicles - all of which Oscar would originally react too. Oscar did brilliantly and even met a beagle and a few people while improving his loose leash skills!

Next, we were back in Jarrow to see Krystal who I didn’t get a chance to get a picture of. Krystal is a Shih Tzu who barks at people and dogs and can redirect onto her handler. We put a plan in place that included some time away from triggers to make her feel safer while we rebalance her. Once she is more relaxed generally, we will start reintroducing her to triggers in a calm way.

Finally, we had Bailey the French Bulldog. Bailey can get quite reactive with people in the home and will randomly lunge and bark at some people and dogs. We taught Bailey to go to bed when the doorbell goes and put it in place and alternative behaviors for when she sees dogs and walks past people. She did fab

Well done guys! Now it’s time for Puppy Classes!
