Monday Mischief: What To Do If Your Dog REACTS

I love the idea that you get what you reward.  With Louise I am always anticipating every situation in the outside world so that she does not freak out, and with Sofie, it is just the opposite, I have to anticipate everything inside to keep her anxious OCD world manageable.

What mischief did you get into today?



This is a blog hop. I hopped it from MYBrownNewfies. Check them out for more mischief.

    That’s true :o) Easy sadly is a miracle sometimes… first he and his new neighbor( a golden retriever) growled an acted as if they would eat each other and today they acted as if they found a long missed brother back … :o(

    I think awareness and having the will to act are two of the biggies. It is so frustrating when we are out and you see reactive dogs with distracted owners. It is a disaster waiting to happen.

      And it scares the life out of me. Especially people who let there dogs run free in the neighborhood and don’t have control while they are running at my reactive dog. Sometimes I feel like letting Louise loose in return so that she shows them why they should be leashed – but I won’t because I care more about their animals then they do. Hard lessons.

    Bruin tends to get like that as well. My walks around our neighborhood are getting fewer because of dog owners who feels it’s ok for their dogs to walk without a leash. Great post!!

      Thanks – If I walk Sofie off leash she is on her ecollar and by my side. I think it is about owner control.

    Great tips! This is perfect for Kilo, although through socialization he has been doing better.

      Depending on this issue, sometime socialization is all a pup needs and then they don’t feel threatened.

    Great reminder about how to handle the situation when our dog reacts negatively to some sort of stressful situation.

      Life can be so stressful sometimes, can’t it. Thanks

    We are very good on leash, if other dogs are excited or come at us without manners then we let them know they are out of line! Love Dollt

      Dolly – We are terrible if someone gets to close to Mommy that we do not know. She is a human and we need to protect her. – Louise

    This is great! Normally both boys are very good but today Leroy seemed to be challenging my patience. He was totally using his size to his advantage on our walk today!

      I don’t know how you want them both together. Just one pull and ‘kaaploop.’ BOL

    Love the concept, my problem is – I rarely have treats with me at the time I need them! I’ve got to set up my game. Great suggestions….

      My dogs are happy with attention like head pats and kisses, though treats work better.
