Walk a Reactive Dog - Video

Yes!  Even a reactive little Cairn boy can learn to be calm and attentive on a walk!

This is a wonderful video by Zak George which demonstrates how to work with a highly reactive dog, using the "Look at me!" and "Get out of Dodge!" positive training methods.  There is a spot of advertising by his sponsor, but it it worth waiting the minute to see this really helpful video.  Obviously, the dog is not a Cairn and we recommend only using a lead attached to a secure harness, not a lead attached to a collar, but everything else he demonstrates applies perfectly.

Walking your dog can be fun!
