Blondie123 is an unknown quantity at this point
Trainers

Hey guys so my blondie is about two and a half now .. She never shows signs of DA til recently ...luckly there was no fight just some growls and teeth and I got her out of the situation. My question is about training...I've sought out a trainer and have an evaluation with them coming up. I know her DA could progress .. As of now she is still plays well with dogs she has been around and of course I never leave them unsupervised. She listens to me well but I would like it to be better part of why I waned a trainer opinion and if she doesn't like a dog I would like her to look to me not just get aggressive towards the dog. I've heard a lot of places tell me if a dog shows signs of aggression they normally coma board and train for two weeks any opinions on the training I need and is that necessary?

My male is extremely reactive when he sees any other dog and there are two tools that have made it possible to have him focus on me instead.

1. Teach the "watch me" command to get him to look at you instead of whatever's happening around him. Start by holding a treat in your hand, show him that it's there, and then close your fist with the treat inside. Once he gives you eye contact, treat. Keep going that until he gives you eye contact when the treat is behind your back, and start saying "watch" or whatever word you want as a cue.

2. I use a spray bottle filled with water on our walks. Sometimes he may try really hard to pay attention to me but he's just too far in the reactive "zone" to pay attention, so a quick spray snaps him out of it and allows him to focus back on me.

Those are what have really worked for me along with counter-conditioning and desensitizing training while on our daily walks. Hope that helps.
