A few weeks ago, we welcomed a new "yellow" dog into our group with some pretty extreme leash reactivity. But we are so impressed with the resolve that our reactive-dog owners have in helping their dogs become more comfortable in society.
We of all people know what it's like dealing with a reactive dog. Not only does it wear on your patience, there are so many thoughts that run through your head: Will other give us the space we need? Will they think I'm a bad owner? Will they think he's a bad dog?
We love that, in our PEDs group, dogs always get the space they need; everyone knows that you are doing your best; and there are no bad dogs, just works-in-progress.
Do you have a reactive dog? What are your worries when out in public?
