For the purpose of figuring out how to deal with these types of behaviors, would it be fair to say that some dog aggressive dogs will be leash reactive as well Yes but not all leash reactive dogs are dog aggressive YES! There are actually plently on dogs he can be around and do fine, though I would...

Yeah, there seems to be a lot of 'DA' showing up on PBF. lol lol

There's no trying to allow sniffing on leash because she goes straight for the face.


Is she high-strung and sorta tweaky by nature? or is she having herself a good time when she goes for another dog?

Hi chewbecca, To me, a leash reactive dog's bad manners have more to do with lack of training and lack of (appropriate) socializing than anything. Being tied to a human isn't a natural behavior for any dog, right? We have to teach them how to act in this situation, especially our excitable terrier t...

OH - I forgot!

Just because a dog reacts badly to other dogs on leash doesn't mean you need to slap the label 'dog aggressive' on him.

When you interview trainers, remember to tell them that he's leash reactive. :thumbsup:

Hey Lycan -- You need to find some good classes. There are SO many reasons that dogs become leash reactive: Some dogs are leash reactive because they haven't spent enough time around other dogs on leash (unsocialized). Some are this way because its just plain FUN to spark. Some are fearful. Some are...

However, a GSD jumped a fence to get into a daycare and attack a kid. A Dobie attacked a little girl causing 300 stitches.


Scary!

Thank you Kristy!

Well ... Crrrrap. And now this dumb bite story is out there, climbing on the back of Indy's hysteria. Kristy, I'm going to be just 3 hours from Indy next week for the Prairie States Conference with a talk on, what else, pit bulls! O blessed timing. :-( If anyone has info on all-breed bite history, e...

In her defence, it is true that she had been in heat when she was reported to have nipped a volunteer, and it seemed that she could have been acting as though she were still in heat about the time when she nipped the dog in the socialization context that did actually break skin. We had Isabelle in ...

The permit expiration date language is one of the many things that are being re-worked right now. It's an easy fix.

Yet the vegan activist was willing to put her life on hold to work on a problem that we all acknowledge as real. She gets big credit for caring. My biggest problem with the opposition is a seeming willingness to let the 'undesirables' go down the toilet. We got hit with this reality when we started ...

"If you have an intact animal, you're part of the problem" I agree, that's a ridiculous statement. So is this one, from the AKC: We strongly support and actively promote a wide range of programs to educate the public about responsible breeding practices and the responsibilities of dog own...
