Summary:The world can be a very distracting place for reactive dogs. The show environment, no matter what the sport, can be even more of a challenge!
The world can be a very distracting place for reactive dogs. The show environment, no matter what the sport, can be even more of a challenge!
• Can your dog get through a door shared by other dogs at a show?
• What happens if another dog sniffs your dog’s body?
• What if the space is severely limited? How do you move your dog through?
• Can your dog watch another dog play close by? Can he watch another do agility?
In a class-like format these concerns, and many more, will be addressed in this program. This program is filled different exercises (using Leslie McDevitt's Control Unleashed® exercises and many others) that you can practice with your dog to teach him to ignore the distractions in the environment no matter what they are or where. Learn how to make your dog more reliable whether in the show ring or being a well-mannered family pet.

She is the author of two highly popular books on this subject: Click to Calm: Healing the Aggressive Dog and Teaching the Reactive Dog Class: Leading the Journey from Reactivity to Reliability.

I just finished watching this DVD and will watch it again. Emma demonstrates with her class many easy-to-incorporate exercises for reactive dogs and owners that will help dogs (and owners) gain more confidence in the real world. Some of the exercises are more suitable to a class setting, but I can see how they could really be helpful if you have some training partners to work with. One of the best feature's of Emma's approach is that you don't have to find the mythical, perfectly non-reactive dog to make progress working around other dogs. Got a friend with a reactive dog? You can actually work through these exercises together. All of the dogs in the videoed class have space issues and they were able to work together to build confidence. If you have a reactive dog (as I do) this is the first DVD to get. I'm so intrigued I just bought and have started reading her book on reactive dog classes.
