Is your dog, well, dog-friendly? This is the question anyone with a leash reactive dog dreads.
As the owner of two leash reactive dogs, I’ve taken a number of classes and private sessions with trainers to determine the best way to manage my dog on a leash when he sees another dog. My dog Sherman is “flight” and my other dog Walter is “fight”. The techniques to train these two attitudes are the same, but the dogs’ overall reaction on leash are quite different. Both are walked individually, of course.
