    I am brand new and am so happy to find you all! I never even heard the term "reactive dog" and boy is my new rescue one. I have been doing my best working with him daily but seeing almost no progress. I am excited to delve into the links today! Thank you!

    Cookieface mentioned this link and I checked it out, looks like some good information on using a muzzle. I have limited experience using a muzzle, I have introduced it to a dog and used it in a few training sessions but nothing more. However, I do think it can be a useful safety and management tool and that conditioning even a very friendly dog to a muzzle is useful. A dog that is injured or in pain is one that might lash out with teeth and if a dog is not stressed by a muzzle, it can make a vet exam safe for the vet and less stressful for the dog.

After time and practice, your dog knows what to expect on walks. Here is a useful link/page you can visit that can tell you more!

    Gee, that is interesting in the sense of kind of scary-disturbing.

    Corrections for reactive dogs are a very risky thing. When using physical punishment to correct a dog, the dog may easily associate the punishment with whatever he or she is reacting about. Which can lead to increased aggression. Basically, dog is stressed about something, dog gets a physical correction for vocalizing or acting out their stress, dog says "Whoa, that means this thing (whatever the thing they are reacting about) actually IS dangerous or bad. Better up the ante now."

No harm done and only on certain dogs in certain situations =] The goal ultimately is to say "hey focus on me and our walk" instead of sprinting off after squirrels =D
    Leash reactivity/ leash aggression in this context has nothing or little to do with squirrels. Prey drive is normal. The concern is reactivity/ barrier(or leash) aggression towards other dogs or towards humans. Negative punishment is the taking away of something desired, ex. is taking away a toy; which doesn't equate to a leash correction. A leash correction is positive punishment under operant conditioning terms

    Bringing this thread back to life. Some good stuff here. I'm looking specifically for VIDEOS (free online) regarding counter-conditioning - even better if it's CC for territorial behavior. Suggestions? I've perused lots of kikopup's videos but I'm not really seeing anything that specific.
    If your dog doesn't like someone you probably shouldn't either.

    I love Sophia Yin's video here: https://drsophiayin.com/videos/entry...owing_in_face/ though it's more about showing that CC isn't going to reward or reinforce aggression than a strict how-to. But it's a solid demonstration and the discussion about the theory behind it is valuable, imo.

    Thank you! I'll check that out. I also found a few others I haven't had time to watch yet - I don't want to recommend any videos to anyone without seeing them first.

    I haven't had much luck in finding videos for CC on territorial or similar behavior that I can suggest. I found one video that was solid for territorial behavior CC but once I watched other videos by the same trainer, I don't feel comfortable suggesting it because the other vids delved off into dominance theory training. I can try to find it again and link it with a big old caveat of "this video ONLY" kinda disclaimer. I did find a good CC video for general handling (like nail trims, vet exam) that demonstrates the concept of what counter conditioning IS, but the actual physical movements and steps wouldn't really apply well to territorial type behavior.
