reactivedog - 45.8k posts

Lucie and I spent most of the day outside. We took a nice morning walk (passed 2 dogs calmly!) and then did lots of short training sessions in the yard all afternoon. I got my new camera lens in the mail too so we practiced a bunch of duration stays to get some nice photos⁣.

Jane did such an awesome job translating the Wait cue from just doorways to any time she stops for little Miss Talla. Although she is only 8 months old and full of puppy energy, Talla maintains focus on her human and knows if she follows Jane's lead she will be highly rewarded!❤ #LearnToSpeakDog .

Little Toby had to get his bordetella vax today so we did some desensitization in the waiting room. Lots of treats and happy chatter. He did really good - he was looking at the other dogs and seemed nervous, but didn't react. Then he got carsick on the way home and has been feeling very sorry for himself and milking it for all the attention he can get. #reactivedog #anxiousdog #reactivedogsunite #behaviormodification #gooddoggo #cattledogsofinstagram #tobywoby

Had another great morning on a social walk with @pawsonality.au I'm learning that dogs on leash are totally fine to be around and to move myself away if I'm feeling uncomfortable. I love being told "YES" by my human when I make the right decision! If you're in Sydney I'd highly recommend coming along sometime!

Wowowowowowoowowowowowow is all I have to say. Bringing one of Milo’s triggers in the house made me very nervous ngl. I mean especially leaving on such a bad note with him. I picked him up and worried the entire way home. I introduced him, he growled once, and now he’s totally fine and is being so friendly! I mean who is this dog?? Regardless I’m so happy and proud of the pup he’s becoming!! .
Now that Milo and I are back home it’s time to resume our training and routines! I’ll also be able to get many more photos (with my camera) so look out for those!! Thanks so much for the endless support. 💞 .

Happy #saturYAY everyone! Summer brings lots of noises outside, so I’m very twitchy at the moment and startle easily (boy human moved his leg near me today and I screamed as if he’d kicked me) BUT, at the Happy Place I am always safe. Here I can run and play and be the really me 😊

MUZZLES 🐾💜 A simple but effective measure of protection. 
For me, for other dogs, for hoomans who don't respect my boundries. 
My mumma got me a muzzle and now I get to go EVERYWHERE!! Back story - when i was five (only a short while after being rescued ) a big nasty doggy attacked me, I'm now not to keen on dogs and want them to stay away, apart from my best friends ( only two of them mind) 
Please don't judge muzzled dogs. We are lovely too, we just need a little extra space.

Muzzle training day 2! Immy seemed to remember the basics well yesterday and at the start of today's session, so we proceeded to closing the straps VERY briefly around her neck. She ran out of cheese wiz so I cut up a block of cheddar for her. We'll still work in the basics to keep building good associations, and this is where we'll stay for a while. She's always tolerated having it put on and wearing it for a minute but she's never LIKED the experienced or gotten to the point where she's wearing it for great lengths, so those are our two goals: enjoyment and duration. 🐶

It’s 82 degrees in the house with the AC on, so Mom got a bandana wet and froze it for a while before putting it on me. I’ve hardly moved today. How are you keeping cool in the #heatwave?

This walk feels like 4 years of hard work in the making!❤️ I love it because she’s on a harness, checking-in frequently, and still looking around and exploring. Everyday we put so much heart, soul, and work into this dog and it’s a beautiful thing to see it paying off. Yes, she will probably always be reactive. Yes, sometimes she needs a head halter to bring her back down. Yes, she will drive me to frustration again when she has an explosion because I didn’t see a dog coming. But today, today she showed us just what a good dog she is and hopefully for the future what she can be!🥰🥰 #reactivedog #reactivedogtraining #reactivedogsofinstagram #huskygermanshepherd #huskygermanshepherdmix #dogmom #doglife #doglover #mydog #happydog #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #outsidefun #outdooradventures #summerdays #adventuredog #adventuretime #adventureawaits #thegreatoutdogs #dogsonadventures #saturdayvibes #saturdaymood #reactivedogintraining #outdoorswithdogs #dogsinthecity

Blindness to irrelevant stimulus training
.
.
My neighbor was mowing his lawn behind the wooden fence as l worked with Annie on her loose leash walk and auto sit. .
.
Annie used to be dog aggressive and very reactive to loud noises when she first came.
.
.
Look at her now!
.
.
So proud of how far this little girl has come!

Training: it’s a slow process, but quitting won’t speed it up.
-
Training is also never done. There’s always more you can work on, more you can teach, more you can improve on & more fun to be had. We have made so much progress in the last year and we are in the best place we’ve ever been. This is largely due to being pushed out of my comfort zone, trying new things and being surrounded by a great support system of people and dogs. But he’s far from perfect & so am I. We will never be perfect, that’s an unrealistic goal. But we will never stop trying to the best version of ourselves. He pushes me & I push him, in the best way possible.

One of the main things i’ve realised since having Rex is how forward people are when it comes to dogs, nobody asks to touch him and if they do they are already in his face. There are so many incidents where dogs attack people who try to pet them which is why it’s so important to give dogs space and if you feel the need to pet a dog ask first. Rex loves other dogs but because of prior experiences he is terrified of people and living somewhere as busy as London can be a challenge for him but he takes it in his stride and makes me proud everyday, it’s only when people get a bit too close he gives a little bark. I’d definitely recommend these straps to pop on your dogs harnesses, the nervous one has made people think twice and give him space. Bought ours off @amazon

Crouch Valley Festival of Food & Drink, had to go and support the local vegan businesses 😁
•
Juke did so well, he went about 20 minutes interacting with other dogs nicely before he got a bit overwhelmed and started barking, we walked off and he calmed down and then the heavens opened and we all ran home in the rain 😆 still went loads better than it would have done 3 years ago :') he's come so far with his socialisation training 👏🐾

The most memorable thing is still how Cali handled herself ringside as we would wait our turn. 
Years ago this would have never been possible. She would have been lunging and barking constantly because dogs make her uneasy. 
While she still had a time or two where someone would unthinkingly come way too close tugging their dog and she’d react but otherwise she was just hanging out. 
Those with reactive dogs know the huge milestone and accomplishment this is. -

Throughout regionals we used our @zumidog slip lead.

Training: it’s a slow process, but quitting won’t speed it up.
-
Training is also never done. There’s always more you can work on, more you can teach, more you can improve on & more fun to be had. We have made so much progress in the last year and we are in the best place we’ve ever been. This is largely due to being pushed out of my comfort zone, trying new things and being surrounded by a great support system of people and dogs. But he’s far from perfect & so am I. We will never be perfect, that’s an unrealistic goal. But we will never stop trying to the best version of ourselves. He pushes me & I push him, in the best way possible.

I dare to upload this picture today because this is our reality too. Bella is highly reactive towards dogs and it makes our life often exhausting and complicated. Not because Bella can’t behave well around other dogs, but because other dog owners don’t respect our personal space. After lots of training Bella ignores other dogs now, she can even walk past them calmly when they totally freak out on the leash. What I can’t affect is that Bella will protect herself when another dog runs into us like this Jack Russell Terrier did. I was laying on the ground taking pictures of Bella when this dog suddenly appeared out of nowhere and ran full speed into Bella. He almost ran her over. I couldn’t react anymore and Bella let him know that she doesn’t want this, luckily the Jack Russell just ran away and both weren’t hurt. His owner was so far away that I could barely see him, he didn’t mind what his dog was doing #ihatepeople 😠 I‘m doing all I can to avoid situations like this, we‘re walking ridiculously long detours, we avoid parks and crowded places, in restaurants we sit where we I can see if another dog is approaching. All because other people take it for granted that all dogs get along well...
Bella is not the only reactive dog out there. Make someone else’s day and don’t let your dog run into others without asking. Thank you 😊✌🏻

We went for a walk to a local sandwich shop & worked on muzzle conditioning & polite walking and waiting (with the hubs while I ran in for sandwiches). Except she was only polite up until she saw a skateboard & promptly lost her ever loving mind over it. And then later in the evening I made the mistake of *gasp* moving the kitchen table & she couldn’t mentally handle the change and spent the rest of the evening barking at every faint noise in a 4 block radius. Like humans, dogs have hard days too, and I try to remember that she’s not giving me a hard time, she is HAVING a hard time. (Though I may have sent her to bed early to drink wine in peace.) #train20challenge #reactivedog #reactivedogsunite #muzzleupproject #muzzleup #muzzleawareness #bumas #bumaslove

Lets make Muzzle Up Monday happen!

Do you know the importance of muzzle training? Do you want to be an advocate for muzzle training?

Even if your dog may never need a muzzle, teaching them to wear one can be a life saving skill!
Any dog can bite when they are in pain or frightened. Some dogs because of their size, breed, or location must wear muzzles in public.
Other dogs benefit from muzzles by being prevented from eating dangerous things or using their mouth in inappropriate ways.

Every Monday, I want challenge you to share a #muzzleupmonday post. Whether that be a dog in a muzzle, teaching your dog to wear one, or simply sharing a thought about them, or sharing someone else’s post! We need to get rid of the stigma and encourage others that muzzles are good things and every dog can benefit from learning to wear one!
Don’t have a muzzle? Try some muzzle up games with a cup, or other similar object your dog can practice putting their snout in.
Be sure to tag me so that I can share! ❤️

Not a usual posed picture.. this is a caught in the moment type of picture, them laying together after running around living the best life they can live and I’m so lucky I get to give them this life. I always sit here and think where they would be if I did not have them, but I am truly lucky to have them ❤️ my little adventure land seals.

Just want to brag on this boy for how awesome he was at the vet. He’s made me want to rip my hair out this week with his accidents and restlessness but he reminded me just how far we’ve come today. 3 years ago it took a TEAM of techs to hold him down just to get his heart rate. He basically needed to be sedated just to go to the vet. He sat at the vet for 3.5 hours today  and was an absolute angel. He got blood work done, a catheter put in, temperature taken (yes, in the butt 😂), and heart rate taken. He didn’t fight it once. He didn’t have to be restrained and he was an absolute angel. He started getting stressed the last 15-30 min but I honestly don’t blame him. 3.5 hours at the vet is ALOT to handle, hell I was getting exhausted at the end too lol. For those with reactive or fear aggressive dogs, don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. One thing a good friend of mine always reminds me is don’t look at how far you have to go but how far you’ve come. Consistency, lots of behavior modification (and cheese!!), Prozac, and CBD have made such a difference in his life.  There is hope💜. (Also pro tip: bring a comfy “place” for them to relax on when going to the vet. Many dogs, including Parker, hate the hard slippery floors and struggle relaxing on them and get stressed slipping around. Practice relaxing on that “place” at home so it’s a known spot to “chill” on. Working with a trainer on this is super helpful as well! )

SWIPE | BEFORE & AFTER DOG REACTIVITY:
We are incredibly proud to hear that @adventureswithdottie has shared their story about Dottie’s prior reactivity. Client confidentiality is very important to us and therefore we have not shared anything about Dottie’s board and train with us until now ☺️
.
She is an angel of a dog and just needed confidence building; due to traumatic experiences with dogs. It was a lovely 5 weeks seeing her transition from a fear reactive dog to a confident dog on and off leash.
.
Our whole environment just helps dogs to overcome things; a playful kitten, a very friendly, tolerant Doberman, our family and lively hometown. Her owners are now doing amazing work to keep all this training going - a very important part of the board and train process. This transitional period is a crucial time and I watch videos of Dottie training every day; amazing, as we love her 🥰
.
If your dog has any severe behavioural issues like #dogreactivity then please consult a professional as managing the stress for dogs & handlers, as well as keeping everything safe - is very important! Please feel free to ask any questions; as always, I am very transparent! 🐾 @pawsitivepursuit

If you asked me to name the single most important thing you can do for your dog, it would be this.
.
Keep your dog feeling safe.
.
This is not to be confused with your dog being safe, or whether or not you think your dog is safe. This is about keeping your dog *feeling* safe. Which means identifying what your dog finds stressful or scary by learning how to observe and read their body language to recognize when, where, and under what circumstances they feel uncomfortable, and doing whatever you can to avoid those situations.
.
This can mean that your dog never visits another dog park.
This can mean that even though it’s a beautiful Sunday and you’d love to have brunch on a patio of your favorite restaurant with your dog, your dog stays home.
This can mean that you politely (or not) decline requests to pet your dog.
This can mean that when children come over your house, your dog is in another room with a yummy Kong.
This can mean that you walk your dog during quiet times of the day.
This can mean that you drive your dog to walk them in a different area.
Whatever it means for you and your dog, keep your dog feeling safe.
.
You are your dog’s best and only advocate. You are what stands between them and the rest of the world, a world where dogs are set up to fail every day with often heartbreaking consequences. This doesn’t mean that we don’t also actively and *humanely* work to help our dogs feel more comfortable and confident in this world, but it does mean that until they do, WE HAVE TO KEEP THEM FEELING SAFE.
.
Our dogs are relying on us, it’s our job to have their backs.
