Has anybody read this, tried this? Anybody with a rather reactive dog? I'd love to hear what you thought!
That's what I'm loving about Control Unleashed - Keefer is not at all fearful, he's confident and social, but he gets excited and distracted easily. While his impulse control at home, (reinforced with routine daily NILIF), is good, it doesn't always translate to the great out of doors where there's so much more going on. He is easily aroused, and has mega prey drive, so he's exactly the sort of dog the CU exercises are for. Many dogs who are reactive on leash are fearful and would choose to move away if given the opportunity. He's the opposite, he wants to go greet other dogs and gets frustrated and barks in this high pitched whiny tone when he's restrained on leash.Originally Posted By: KathyWI also like Control Unleashed. It is written mainly for agility dogs but all the exercises can be used with dogs that are reactive in any walk of life. Some of those dogs in the book are not necessarily fearful just over aroused by all the action in agility. That can be the case with any dog. So the exercises may help Grimm.
