Reactivity & Fearfulness Rehab

Reactivity, Aggression & Fearfulness

In our experience there are very few truly aggressive dogs.

The majority of aggression or reactivity cases we deal with are rooted in fear.  Either the dog has had an historic experience that prevents it interacting appropriately, has been poorly socialised. with different environments, dogs or people, or there is an issue with leadership, leaving the dog no choice other than to step into the leadership role leaving it to make the decision on what is safe and what is not safe.

Simply put, the dog is put in the position of evaluating threats, "I need to take control and deal with anything I perceive as a threat because my human isn't".  This can result in a heightened state of alert - always on guard, or a retreat into fearfulness.  Either can produce what presents on the surface as aggression.

Our rehabilitation course consists of a 2 or 3 session series, (dependant on severity) which looks to explore and identify the reasons for aggression, reactivity or fearfulness, evaluates and addresses any issues with owner leadership that may be triggering an inappropriate response from the dog, and gives a clear pathway of practical techniques and exercises that improve communication, increase engagement and improve responsiveness with the goal of restoring relationship, and taking the burden of leadership off the dogs shoulders.

”We can't thank you enough! ”

I would like to sincerely thank Steve and Sharon for the significant improvement in our 16 month old Labrador.  The transformation from being anxious & reactive to a much calmer dog and a delight to walk has been amazing.  We can't thank this couple enough for all their hard work. 

Thank you from Karen & Milo
