Training a reactive dog

Posted: Updated:

Sometimes man's best friend doesn't want to be friends with other pups or even other humans. Angelo Marinakis with Supernova Dogworks tells us how to train a reactive dog.

For any questions or concerns surrounding this issue:


- DO NOT physically correct your dog or attempt to physically push your dog on his/her side or back in order to demonstrate dominance.
- DO NOT correct warning signs like growling.
- DO attempt to IDENTIFY what caused your dog to react.
- DO attempt to diffuse the situation by creating some distance between your dog and the things that cause him/her to react.
- DO contact a professional trainer who uses up to date, scientific approach to training in order to positively reprogram your dog's response and help him learn to be relaxed and confident.
