This webinar aims to assist trainers in understanding the origins of reactivity in dogs. Topics will include defining reactivity, discussing how reactivity starts, the role of genetics, socialization and stress physiology, and medical involvement. It then goes into a discussion of how ?fixable' is the dog, and the management of a reactive dog. Special attention is devoted to the first few days and weeks of treatment of the reactive dog, including setting up a helpful home and the role of nutrition, exercise and medications. We then review classical and operant conditioning, reward values, and which skills to teach the dog.
