First off I just had a behaviorist come out and tell me that one of my 3 dogs was showing inappropriate behavior and was a reactive dog. I set up some time with a trainer in my area that works with reactive dogs. and she came out. When she first arrived all my dogs were happy to see her as they always are when we have visitors and I proceeded to tell her what my problems were with my 5 yr old rescue maltipoo. He takes the other dogs bones and is hyper, affecting my other dogs. The first thing she talked to me about was claiming items for myself. She proceeded to take the dogs bones and put them on the floor. Of course my 4 month gsd went to get his bone and she "poked him in the neck" he ran into a corner between two chairs and hid. My other two dogs started barking and she proceeded to poke them in the neck. My shih tzu who never growls at anyone proceeded to growl at the trainer until the trainer moved forward and poked her again. My shih tzu looked at me and was quiet. My reactive dog continued to run around the room jumping on furniture and barking. she cornered him and he quieted down., until he saw an opening and ran behind me where he sat down.The trainer said it was a touch she was doing. While this was happening I think my daughter took my gsd puppy into her room. I asked the trainer if we could just work with my reactive dog as we were doing positive rewarding witht the gsd puppy only at this point and she said I should get a prong collar for my dogs and she showed me how to use it. I paid the trainer for her hour even though I ended the session early and she said she would be calling me about more training. Im confused as to is this how reactive training is done with "touches" and chhhhs? I need advice as I dont want a spoiled reactive dog, but I havent seen this type of training before. Im worried that my dogs were scared.
