Should I stay or should I go?

When to train your reactive or fearful dog, and when to bail out. 

Training a reactive dog is can be frustrating.  What if he won’t take food?  Why isn’t he getting better?

A worried dog is usually less motivated by food than a relaxed dog is, and harder to train. To improve your dog’s behavior, you need to know when they’re relaxed, and when they’re starting to get worried.

Check out this video showing the body language of several reactive dogs in different situations. We’ve grouped the clips into Training, Intervention, and Bail Out zones to help you identify when to intervene to help your dog.
