Reactivity. Part 6. Impulse Control. Greetings

For all the reasons, I mention in Part 2, I don't let my dogs greet strange dogs when they are on leash.

For those who do choose to allow on leash greetings I recommend working with a good trainer on completing everything in part 1 through 5 first. And also working on impulse control:

Your dog should also be highly proficient at loose leash walking before attempting this.

A good trainer can provide a stable, calm to dog and meetings should be very short.  Keep leashes loose at all times and allow natural circle greetings. More details here

Stay Tuned. More on reactivity will be posted here:
