Reactiveness and barking a lot~
I have a 21 month old staffy mix that is a total sweetheart-most of the time. He has been socialized every day since his shots at 4months with morning walks, pack walks, some dog park (but other dogs seem to pick on him plus he has a wonky paw so he can't run as much as he wants) but lately, he has become reactive to some other dogs, barking in the neighborhood and uber protective. I have a air can that I use in the house somethimes, I keep him on leash and am using a canny collar (works really well!). I'm looking for any additional advice on training for him to calm down. He is no longer allowed to sleep with me and must wait for me to exit or enter a room or the stairs first. I'm hoping for any additional advice to help my sweet boy be the best he can be and not scare people.
