Reactivity is one of the hardest behaviours to deal with but have you ever wondered why that is? You may never have even thought about reactivity before you got your dog, but now when your dog starts reacting, you find yourself reacting too! You may get stressed at the very thought of going for a walk.
Your dog's reactivity is not your dogs fault, they are acting in response to an emotion and when they react it can make them feel better in the moment so they keep doing it.
You can support your dog by giving them new ways to respond that also feel good. Over time they can start to ignore what once caused a meltdown or maybe even enjoy meeting other dogs or new people.
