Do you have a Jekyll and Hyde dog at the other end of the leash? Is she wonderful with familiar dogs but barks and lunges at unfamiliar ones? Through slides, videos and live demonstrations, TreatingDog-Dog Reactivity will show you how to:
• Make neighborhood walks enjoyable again!
• Use Classical and Operant Conditioning like a pro
• Match the training method with the dog
• Turn away from trouble before it starts
• Stop other dogs from charging at your own dog
A picture is worth 1000 words, and a DVD is worth even more; there’s nothing like seeing live training practices in action. This half-day seminar, taped in September 2010, includes a summary of both Classical and Operant Conditioning methods to help dog-dog reactive dogs. You’ll see several types of positive training techniques used on demonstration dogs (including “Watch,” “Look at That!,” BAT & CAT), and learn about the context in which they are most effective. Additional demonstrations & discussions illustrate what to do when unfamiliar dogs charge at your own, how to handle dog fights, and how to teach an “Emergency U-Turn” to get yourself out trouble before it begins.
Better Together! Order the Feisty Fido book along with the Treating Dog-Dog Reactivity DVD for additional support. When you’re not in front of your TV, this book is the perfect guide to treating on-leash reactivity.
