Dog training of course is simple, but not always easy.  But there are strategies and techniques that can make what looks like a challenging problem much easier to address.  Avoid the common stumbling blocks to make this a problem you look forward to fixing!

  • What is leash reactivity?  Define the problem to create a clear training path.

  • Yes you can beat distractions with a cookie!  Here’s how.

  • Why some leash reactive dogs snub food.

  • The importance of creating the right cue.  Teach the dog to do an incompatible behavior when they see what triggers them.

  • What drives the problem?  It’s not fear.

  • Understand the importance of not training in the context until ready.

  • How to build powerful behaviors that stand up to distractions.

  • Avoid bad behavior chains.  It’s not bark then look at me!

  • Clear criteria.  Training is a progression, not a one step skill.
