Welcome to the weekly reactive dog support group!

The mission of this post is to provide a constructive place to discuss your dog's progress and setbacks in conquering his/her reactivity. Feel free to post your weekly progress report, as well as any questions or tips you might have! We seek to provide a safe space to vent your frustrations as well, so feel free to express yourself.

We welcome owners of both reactive and ex-reactive dogs!


New to the subject of reactivity? A reactive dog is one who displays inappropriate responses (most commonly barking and lunging) to dogs, people, or other triggers. The most common form is leash reactivity, where the dog is only reactive while on a leash. Some dogs are more fearful or anxious and display reactive behavior in new circumstances or with unfamiliar people or dogs whether on or off leash.

Does this sound familiar? Lucky for you, this is a pretty common problem that many dog owners struggle with. It can feel isolating and frustrating, but we are here to help!
