Have you ever lost your temper?
I know I have!
Does that make me a bad person?
I hope not!
So, does a dog losing their temper or are reactive mean they are a bad dog?
Dogs who are reactive can still be super cuddly, have a favourite teddy, be wonderful around children, be incredibly well trained and have wonderful, responsible owners. Often the most wonderful and responsible around!
Reactive dogs deserve wonderful walks too! Their owners love them and acting irritated by them or telling them that their dog isn't welcome somewhere can be incredibly hurtful.
As always, if you have a reactive dog, a dog who has acted aggressively or any level of challenging behaviour you can think of and you want to help them learn another way - then send me a message.
I'm here to help and would love to hear from you. Zero judgement. Just love!
