Is the thought of your daily walk with your canine companion causing you anxiety? Does your furry friend bark at everything that goes by while out in the garden? Upon noticing another dog, are you worried your dog may become reactive and aggressive?
Do not worry, you are not alone. Many dogs are reactive to different stimuli, especially when being asked to live in human society. When raising a puppy you can socialize them pretty perfectly into human society. However, when rescuing a dog with an unknown history, or moving a dog from a countryside environment to an urban one, reactivity issues can arise.
However, there are many things you can do as a companion to a dog in order to improve, diminish and eliminate any reactivity issues. With all the information online it can be hard to figure out where to start, but now life has been made easier with the Woofbuzz app!
