  1. When and how to introduce blind but reactive rescue to puppy?

    Dog Training Forum
    Our older dog is a 6 year old rescue with dog reactivity problems. We've taken him to trainers and group training and trained him ourselves to try to overcome the dog reactivity, and while it got a lot better, it never really went away. He doesn't bark at other dogs aggressively; he's never...
  2. Canyx was right. In search of more advice in dealing with a reactive dog.

    Dog Training Forum
    A month or so ago I posted a short story about my history with my dog and my desire to be able to effectively use a tug in training my dog. I received a lot of very good information on tug and training calm. The dog I'm writing about is a pit/mutt who I found on the street when she was about...

    Do you ever have those days when you think you've done everything wrong?? :redface:Today was definitely one of those! I have a 5 1/2 month puppy who is lovely. He was great visiting grandparents over christmas and even convinced my dog hating grandma that they're not so bad. He has brilliant...
  4. Dog Reactivity: Help with Body Language

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi! It's my first time trying to read body language. I did know some basic stuff, but not all the subtle signals. Now that my dog is reactive to other dogs, I'm trying really hard to see all the signals to find out if she's aggressive or not. So, can you help me? When she saw other dogs, she...

    Attention All New Members
    Hi everyone, I'm really excited about this forum! I'm here because of an urgent, pressing problem I have with my reactive-aggressive dog. I need to move by the end of the month and found a beautiful apartment right by campus that is dog friendly. In fact, it's the only dog-friendly place I've...
  6. Reactivity gone bad!

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog's name is Beast, a black lab/chihuahua/min pin mix. He's around 35 pounds and his back is just below my knee. He's guestimated to be 1 1/2 years old and I've had him for about 8 months now. He came from a bad place before. I took him from a home where he was put in the backyard once he...

  8. My dog's fear problems. And how far we've come so far.

    Dog Training Forum
    Alright ladies and gents, prepare for a rather long, confusing post by yours truly. I got Luna at four months, missing her key socialization window. I didn't know much about her history other than that she grew up with 13+ other dogs and had to compete for food. She was VERY thin when she...
  9. A Brag

    General Dog Forum
    So... some of you surely know that Snowball is leash/barrier reactive. When we got him last July, I would never have guessed that we would have been able to have him on-leash around other dogs, period. But yesterday we went to a local pet event (at 1:00 gives you an idea) with TONS of dogs, on...
  10. Reactivity: using dogs to my advantage

    Dog Training Forum
    This morning we had a run-in with a new dog in the neighborhood. It was my fault, luckily nothing happened but two surprised owners. The dogs romped for a bit, then we continued on our respective walks. On our way home, however, Snowball (on leash) and I ran into a second dog (a Basset hound)...
  11. Best harness for a reactive dog? Freedom No Pull vs Sensation?

    Dog Training Forum
    I think the Freedom harness is cool, but it doesn't seem to work as well as far as stopping the pulling and lunging. Sensation works better. Has anyone else experienced this?
  12. Eye contact reactivity, any suggestions?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all! I have a training question to run by you. My dog has always been fear reactive, but he has improved significantly during the time I’ve had him. He’s still fear reactive, but he is much more confident than he was. One of the things he is reactive to that I've noticed lately is prolonged...
