Help for Leash Reactive Dogs On-leash reactivity is a common problem and one that many dog owners struggle with. Many dogs experience barrier frustration when they cannot greet other dogs or they want to chase a critter, skateboard or bicycle when they are on leash. This can cause them to “act out” by barking, lunging, growling and pulling. Teaching an alternate behavior- “do this instead of that” can help turn things around and take your dog from a leash monster to a well-behaved dog about town! The Leave It Protocol This protocol is built using Leave It as the primary behavior. By building a solid Leave It, owners of dogs who are reactive to things in the environment can teach their dogs to do something other than react. This can make walks and outings more pleasant for both people and dogs.
