  1. New Apartment = Reactive Dog

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! We recently moved in to a dog-friendly apartment from a house and my dog, Kleo, has been getting very reactive with lots (but not all) of the other dogs in the building. It's strange to me because: 1) Kleo is getting the same amount, if not more, exercise than she was at the house...
  2. My dog corrects other dogs, but then does not stop correcting until I intervene

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 2 year old Catahoula Hound Mix. We got her when she was 6 months old. The foster mom had worked on socializing her and training her; however she was still incredibly nervous in some situations. She jumped into our laps upon meeting us and all of our close friends, but she would be...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi! Today I bought Dottie, my fearful/reactive dog, a lickety stik hoping we could use it on walks when we pass dogs or scary people along with her other treats. She sniffed it and tentatively licked the roller ball, before skittering away and deciding it was terrifying. :rolleyes: I was hoping...
  7. I am SERIOUSLY considering putting Rocky on Prozac

    Dog Training and Behavior
    So, I've had Rocky since February and recently moved back to NYC with him. He is VERY leash reactive- towards dogs mostly, but also skateboards, scooters, buses and trucks. We have been working very hard on his reactivity (LAT), and he shows marked improvement, which is always followed a rapid...

    Sooo I'm new on here and I have a few questions :) I am the proud owner of two Mini Aussies (Cougar and Jett). They are full brothers, Cougar is a 4 year old red merle and Jett is a 2 year old blue merle. I've just recently started Cougar back in agility after a 3 year break, and I'm thinking...
