live an active life with your reactive dog

By definition, a reactive dog is simply a dog that overreacts to stimuli.

 Does your dog lunge, bark, and growl at other dogs, people, or maybe even things like bicycles? Don’t worry. I got your back! This is your one stop resource for all things related to owning a reactive dog. My mission is to provide resources, tips, training advice, and so much more so that you can get outside and start living an active life with your reactive dog!
