A Contagious but Curable, and Preventable Disease
Imagine This Scenario:
So What Should You Do?
“But that’s no fun!”
So What’s the Solution?
“What if its too late, and my dog is already leash reactive?”
If the ingredients for the cure was simple enough to give you in this blog post, I would write it all down so everyone could just help their dog get better, and it wouldn’t be a big deal. While leash reactivity is curable, unfortunately, it’s a complex problem that involves rebuilding the trust your dog has in you, and your dogs confidence. Depending on the severity, it can take months to fully curb, and requires a lot of patience, time and effort on the dog owner / families part.
The vaccine to this contagious disease is simple: stop meeting and greeting strange dogs on leash. If everyone followed this practice, this behavioural problem wouldn’t be spreading like wildfire.
