Nervous, anxious, timid and reactive dogs
• Cower behind you or back off rapidly?
These can all be seen signs of (over) reactivity and inability to cope and it is vital that you know how to work with this dog to help manage and address their behaviour…
Why are dogs reactive?
Its ok – just keep making them do it…
Why do they need a different approach?
If you want to know more about this, we suggest reading James O’Heares book Canine Neruropsychology (it’s a bit technical but really interesting).
CARE for reactive dogs
Have a look at the CARE website http://careforreactivedogs.com/ – its fabulous!
What do we offer ?
For many reactive dogs, we suggest you start by coming along – without your dog – to watch any class to meet us and see how we train. We can then arrange a 1-1 visit to get you started.
1-1 for reactive dogs
This starts with a lengthy behavioural analysis discussion so we can unpick the issues. We then share resources and give a plan to work to, so you can get started. This then gives you access to email or text as often as necessary so we can support you along the way. In many cases we see you for follow up visits, but not in every case.
