Problem Alarm: Training Dogs that Are Reactive to Home Visitors
Reactivity and aggression directed toward unfamiliar people entering the home is a common behavior complaint of dog owners. Many pet owners are skeptical that they will be able to make training progress, because they do not (or are unable to) have many visitors. Actually, that situation is an advantage! Training should start without unfamiliar people in the home. This Session will explore training and behavior-modification strategies that address this common issue safely, humanely, and effectively—and as part of a complete veterinary behavioral treatment plan.
