Having had a scare with my dog and a child she had bitten, there was obviously a very strong need for me to read more about why my dog has what has always previously been referred to as 'fear aggression', and for me to try and train her out of her aggressive behaviours. She was attacked as a pup by a man in the park, and had grown more and more afraid of anyone she didn't know and other dogs she didn't know, ever since. This book described my dog perfectly i.

Imagine my relief to realise that a these are researched and understood behaviours in dogs and there are good reasons why they behave this way and b there are very simple and practical ways for me to 'train' those behaviours out of my dog. More importantly, the training methods offered in this book by the author are ALL positive, kind, solid and good methods.

I had probably also inadvertently been transferring my own nervousness back onto my dog. Now I know to remain calm, firm, walk my dog away from a potentially bad situation or minimise a bad situation by removing ourselves quickly and calmly , reward her when she's calm and ONLY when she's calm when other people are about, and so on. I'm still reading the book, after first skim reading it, and now writing up notes as I work with my dog using all of the author's training directions.
My dog is definitely calmer and quieter already, and we are both more confident. We seem to have a better bond now, too; my dog seems to know that I fully understand her behaviour problems now. I know I'm becoming a much better dog owner as a result of reading this book. This book comes highly recommended by me.

She has been traveling the nation, delivering her day-long seminar on fearful and reactive dogs; this seminar has taken her as far as Arizona and Florida. Ali leaps at any invitation to share the information she has learned regarding this issue. Another passion for her is Rally. What makes Rally unique is that it is competitive obedience for anyone and everyone, regardless of age, gender, breed, mix, handicap, or level of competitiveness.
Agility has become a source of amazement for Ali. Agility is a real craze among dog-lovers, but what Ali finds most fascinating is how precise body movement and posture must be in order to communicate effectively with your canine partner.

People might expect dog trainers to have the perfect dog. But by the time Bing was 5 months old I realized I had a challenge on my hands. At first The Bing Blogs were designed for my dog training website. The term for this is reactivity.
