What people say

“We had an extremely fearful dog. Joanna, went over many different strategies that Zuri was easily able to pick up on. In one month, the growth we saw in her was incredible. We are so thankful that we took the time to invest in our dog- the quality of life Zuri will have for the rest of her life has been well worth it!!

“Our rescue dog Sharan has made great progress since Joanna worked with us to help her keep calm. Taking her on a walk used to be like walking through a minefield. She would lunge and bark at everything: passing cars,

Q: What is a “Reactive dog”?

A reactive dog is a dog that overreacts and may act aggressively in response to certain things.” Reactivity in dogs is a common behavior problem and can manifest in various situations.

Reactive response can include barking, growling, lunging, and/or even aggressive behaviors such as snapping or biting. For the Love of Paws Pet Service (FLOPPS) wants to remind everyone that a dog that reacts quickly can become aggressive. Be careful when approaching a dog you don’t know, no matter how experienced you are with dogs.

Q: Can a fearful dog become a “Reactive dog”?

The short answer is yes, a fearful dog may become reactive. This is on a case by case basis and would need an evaluation by our certified trainer to give a clear answer.

Q: What is a Fearful Dog?

A fearful dog is one that gets scared or anxious easily. This can happen in response to people, animals, objects, or certain situations.

Fearful behavior in dogs can manifest through trembling, cowering, hiding, barking, growling, or even aggressive reactions if left unchecked. We need to train fearful dogs carefully, using positive methods to boost their confidence and ease anxiety. Identifying triggers and and using gentle methods with patience can help them feel better.
