I own a German Shepherd mix. He’s smaller about 48 lbs and 14 months old. We adopted him when he was about 8 months old. He has always been leash reactive toward dogs. He plays nicely off leash and goes to doggy daycare, however when he’s on a leash and sees a dog he turns into Cujo. We started training with him when we first got him with a trainer that uses prong collars and so we trained him with that. The next step was ecollar and that freaked me out, so I went to a positive trainer instead. For the past 4 months I’ve worked on desensitization with him and even went through a reactive dog class with him. He’s no better and may actually be a little worse at this point. I just want to cry because I’ve spent so much time and money on him. We’re out and about every weekend as a family, so if I can’t work him through this I’m not sure what we’re going to do. I don’t want him to spend all weekend stuck in a crate. I’d much rather bring him to my kids games with us.
