We understand the challenges of living with a reactive dog. Reactivity in dogs refers to an exaggerated response to certain stimuli, such as other dogs, people, or unfamiliar situations. It can manifest in various ways, including barking, lunging, growling, or even aggressive behavior. Reactive dogs often struggle to cope with these triggers, causing stress for both the dog and their owner. This is Puptown Houston Training for Reactive Dogs:
Can reactive dogs be trained?
The good news is that reactive dogs can indeed be trained to manage their reactivity and develop better coping mechanisms. With the right approach and guidance, it’s possible to help your dog build confidence, overcome their triggers, and create a harmonious relationship.
